How to Prevent Shin Splints

Shin splints are a common problem for many athletes, including runners, basketball players, and even freestyle skiers. If you already have shin splints, you should ice them, but definitely take a break from your activity until you recover. Of course, the best thing to do is prevent them in the first place.

Steps

1. Check the condition of your shoes. If they look worn out, or don't give you the support they once did, get a new pair.
2. Strengthen muscles in that area of your leg. You can do this by walking around on your tip toes once in a while and walking around on your heels.
3. Walk backwards whenever you can, it "reverses" the effect of shin splints or "contrasts" how you get them.
4. Stretch before and after an activity of strenuous activity.
5. Warm up and cool down before and after a hard workout. This will also help you feel less sore the next day.
6. Run without letting the worry of getting shin splints stop you.

Tips

# Don't do too much training too quickly. You shouldn't increase the distance you run too quickly, especially if you are a new runner or have not run in a while. A good rule of thumb is to never increase your mileage by more than 10% a week.

# Find out what type of arch your foot has. If you are flat-footed or have an over-prorate arch, you are more at risk for shin splints.

# Try not to "stomp" your feet when you run. This will put less stress on your shins.

# Take it easy when you go down a hill. If possible, coast down a hill on a grassy surface. This will also decrease your chances of slipping and falling

Singapore Marathon 2007 - Malaysian's Results

Click here for the Top 150 Malaysian's Action in Singapore Marathon and results.

Unknown Woon pays his way from US to compete in Games


THE journey to the Korat SEA Games has been a long and tough one for Malaysian marathon runner Woon Chan Yew and it’s not over yet.

He had to train under sub-zero temperatures, pay US$1,600 (RM5,200) for air ticket and endure a 20-hour flight from Iowa via Los Angeles to reach Kuala Lumpur, all because he wanted to represent the country in the Games.

Who is Chan Yew? He was born in Kuala Lumpur 28 years ago, works as an assistant dining service manager at the University of Iowa, the United States, and is down to run in the marathon.

But gaining his berth to the Games was also an uphill one. Not many in Malaysia knew about him and his ability to compete at such a high level. After all he has never won anything significant.

Upon arriving in Korat, he told Bernama: “I started running in the marathon one year ago and won a local meet. The local press covered it and last month I sent the press clipping to the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) when I found out that the athletics squad to Korat was not finalised yet.

“A series of e-mails were exchanged and my winning time of 2’32:00 convinced the OCM to give me a chance.

“I had to fork out my own money to pay the air ticket and had to convince my bosses to allow me to take leave to compete here. I cannot promise a gold medal for Malaysia but I have promised the OCM that I will give my best and not give up. I will fight and fight on until the very last.

“That’s my promise to the OCM and the Malaysia Amateur Athletic Union (MAAU),” said Chan Yew.

Not many are expecting Chan Yew to strike gold but he is here under the Category A ticket, which means he is a medal prospect, but more importantly he is already a winner in his own right.

But win or lose for Chan Yew, after the Games he will have to work on his off days when he goes back to make up for the leave he has taken to be part of the Games.

“But I guess it’s all right with me. The experience of the Games and the chance to represent my country is worth it,” said Chan Yew.

The commitment and sacrifice shown by Chan Yew also received a round of applause from MAAU vice-president Karim Ibrahim who said his attitude should serve as an example to others.

Singapore Marathon 2007

Dont know why nowaday very lazy to write race report, could be bad influenced from my friend, who are very famous and popular runner's in running arena. But i told myself shall not let this type of habit happen and hope that he will change his lazy habit as well. haha

The race start sharp at 5.30am, I, TH and SC decide to pace together, we start with slow pace because of traffic jam, we could only reach the starting point after 2.30mins from the flag off time. Our pacing to the first 11km is about 60mins, everyone look ok and quite satisfy with 5.30 pace. Continued with the journey and pass the starting point at 13Km again, feel great after been cheering by Adidas supporters there.. TH and SC take the first pack of power gel at about 15km while my self thinking off just take it at 20km, when i find that my pace a bit slow down at 17km, then i just change my mind.

We pace to the 20km, at about 1hr50min we are able to maintain at 5.30/km pace. SC feel a
bit struggle and keep at distance from us at 27km..I feel a bit breathless at 30km, by that time our timing is about 2.45hr, i have to take the 2nd pack which are given by organiser at 27km.

Then the nightmare starting, I and TH starting feel the tiredness and the weather is quite hot already. We have make the decision to pace together and motivated each other till the end, otherwise it might end up we might stop and walking which for sure will deteriorate our timing. TH start feel the harmstring cramp while i having the problem with knee strain, we quickly grab the deep heat and apply on it.. We also pour water for us to remain fresh to finish the race.

At the 41km, our timing is 3:58 as shown on the VMS, we decide to push till the end.. I complete the race at 4:00:52 while TH 4:02:28. SC also improve a lot finish at 4:16:06. Raymond pacing with his girl friend and finished at 7:50:27.
