Yes, i have had it, and shin splints too!! what helped me was thorough Stretching before and after use, and to strengthen the muscles, a lot of calf raises and skipping helped both of those issues for me. I went to a physio guy in Southgate, he was really good and basically told me to wear inner soles in shoes, dont run up hill to much, do a lot of calf raises, practice mobility of the ankle and knee and thoroughly stretch it before and after use.

Try this too

Can't argue with that...I just didn't notice em until they hurted me !! :D

I will stretch them out more as that seems to relieve the ache. Not sure about the skipping but I will give a try tomorrow as I have session planned.
I get the ache when they are contracted (foot pointed out)

That's one area of my body that I haven't managed to hurt!

I read the link Rix provided. Seems like sound advice.
