Re: Notes: Shin splints sideline Hamilton
I hope Hamilton is okay. It seems like something that might happen to a guy who has been away for some time. I don't know his workout routine (esp. in the last year). He seems like a strong guy, but perhaps spent more time in the weight room than running. Seems like shin splits happen when the legs get over-exerted... not that I am anywhere near an expert on these things.
Reminds me of when I played HS baseball and we spent a lot of time doing conditioning in the gym before we ever put on a glove or swung a bat. When doing lots of runnning our manager would regularly make us stop and walk on the heels of out feet (backwards tippy-toe). Supposedly it was to help prevent shin splints. Like I said I am not an expert, but it seemed to help since no one on the team ever seemed bothered by shin splints.
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
