I hope you are able to get rid of that shin pain! I know that if I do not warm up and strentch my shins before and after I run, I will suffer from shin splints as well. Its terrible when you get them - as it hurts with every step you take! What type of warm up/cool down and stretching do you do to help prevent this?
