Default Sore Legs When Running

After I've been for a run or played football, no matter how much i stretch my legs, I have a pain down the front of both legs, almost on the shins. What could this be? Anyone know anyways to combat this or reduce the pain?

Sounds like medial tibial stress syndrome, also known as shin splints.

I get the same thing mate. Part of it is conditioning but every so often usually when iv done too much i get a flare up. The right type of running shoes need to be worn. ( none of this wear army boots crap) . Running puts enormous strain on the legs, joints ect. Once youve got them the only way really to get rid of them is rest. Iv heard different theories on what causes them, some say its the bone cracking and getting minute fractures, others say its tendons and ligaments running down the front of the shin. Iv not found a way to get rid of them without rest so just get on with it really, it hurts like hell i know.

Eventually your tibula's will strengthen and it should get better if you keep running

Match your shoe to your foot type, any qualified running shoe store sales clerk can help with this. This part is CRUCIAL. Also, ice and massage will eliviate the pain.

Periostitis, or shin splints is quite likely.

Currently affected by it myself, due to excessive training (army).

Dont run for some time or only till the pain starts. Ignoring the pain and hoping it will get better...forget about it. I forced myself the last 3 months to cope with the pain due to my training. It's something you really shouldn't do and it's no fun running/walking 20miles with such a pain. It will only worsen and definitly not get better. Wait till the Periosteum recovers and start with running again. Low volume and don't over do it.
If you keep on running with the same volume it will just worsen, might turn into compartment syndrom and your shin could break (stress fracture).

Change running shoes
Try ice massages (take some ice and massage the area for ~30 secs...every morning and before/after running)
Strech
Refrain from training the muscle (which will help over time) as long as the shin still hurts.
Check how you run. Bad running technique is quite counterproductive.
Diclofenac (Voltaren)

In case you really have shin splints, dont force it. With some resting and streching etc. it can go away quickly (2-3) weeks.

If it turns chronic you'll have some fun for some time.

This and listen to Jey Jey.

If you get shin splints let them heal by resting your training. They do strengthen if you let them. I developed muscle over my shin after rest and light training. Now they arn't a problem.

Stretch, ice, massage, rest.
