  1. Ok, ive had a little problem with my shins. Recently i payed £40 to see a pyhsio! he told me that i didnt have shin splints because the pain is on the outer side of my leg, well ive done some research and it seems you CAN get shin splints on the outer side of your leg, he told me to rest 12-14 days i rested about 16 to be safe, started running again and i still feel that slight ache, it doesnt actually bother me it doesnt hurt at all, im just paranoid it could turn into a serious injury, ive been reading up on stress fractures aswel i hope to god i dont have 1 of them because its 6-8 weeks rest + i start my basic training for 1st of may. I guess what im asking is aslong as the pain doesnt get to where it hurts will i still be good to run? thanks guys
