yeah i had issues with this too. i started tapping my toes for a minute or two before i started runs and they went away! seriously, i dont understand exactly why that helps, but it does!

When I started running, I got them pretty bad because I ran too fast and really pushed too hard. I realized that I didn't have to sprint, that I could keep a moderate pace, and still work my heart and lungs, and keep my shins happy too.

When I was in gymnastics a lifetime ago, we would all get such awful shin splints. Toe taps are the best way to stretch out your calfs and ease some of the pain.
