Hi. I am a 17 year-old female runner of average weight. I ran cross country for four years and just this past fall (my last season) I got really bad shin splints and sprained my ankle. I cross trained and went to PT during the winter (took off from running), got new orthotics and sneakers (I have really flat feet) and just started to get back to running. However, whenever I start to run the pain just comes back into my shins and ankle (but after I run, which makes it hard to know how much to push myself). I ran a half last year and would really like to do another one but I just do not know how to get rid of my pain since taking a four month break from running, PT, and orthotics did not help.
