How to Avoid Shin Splints When Training for Cross Country

It's important for all runners to understand shin splints. Here are some tips for avoiding shin splints when training for long distance cross country races and runs.

It's important for all runners to understand shin splints. Here are some tips for avoiding shin splints when training for long distance cross country races and runs.


1. Gradually add distance. Most often, shin splints occur because runners don't know their limitations; if you haven't been running long distances already, start with about 10 miles a week and gradually increase this number by about 10% per week. Cross country running is a sport for the patient. Don't jump into a six or seven mile run that you're not ready for, and your chances of shin splints will drastically decrease.


2. Stretch well. You should stretch before running, after running about the first mile of your training, and after running, every day, without exception. Your cross country or track coach can train you in a few stretches specifically designed to avoid shin splints. I hate to try to explain them in an article like this, because if done incorrectly, stretches won't help you, and you may end up with worse issues, but if you don't have a coach, there are videos available on YouTube to help cross country runners stretch properly before, during, and after every run.


3. Run on good ground. Soft, grassy ground is best--asphault and concrete are the worst for your legs and shins in general. Don't run on slopes for extended periods of time, and try to stay on ground that keep your feet landing in an even, straight way. Stay off of sidewalks, and instead run on the grass. Constantly be aware of your surroundings, and know where you're running next so that you can plan to stay in good running areas and on good ground. This will prepare you for the terrain of most cross country courses, too.


4. If your shins hurt, take a day or two off. You don't want to make the situation worse, and if you've started to get shin splints, you're going to make them worse even if you begin running correctly, so just take a day off and come back rested and fully healed. Let your cross country coach know when you think you've got a case of shin splints; he or she'll be able to give you further advice on how to treat the problem.
