How to prevent shinsplints?

I have recently started running in order to train for a 10 km race. Maybe I did not warm up enough, maybe I was too out of shape, maybe I was wearing the wrong shoes, maybe I should have start running a lesser distance in the beginning, I don’t know. The fact is that I have shinsplints which were quite paintful. The doctor told me not to run anymore, to do other sports as running puts a lots of stress on one’s feet.I agree that it puts a lot of stress on one’s feet, especially if running on concrete, but to stop running? Well, that’s bullocks!Here are some easy exercises that I have found that you could start doing in order to strengthen the muscles attached to the shinbone and prevent shinsplints from happening to you.
