I've been suffering from shin splits ever since I started running a year ago. It seems to be a persistent problem where after 2 weeks of running twice per week, about 3-4k distance each run, I then have to take a few weeks off to recover from shin splints.

I've been going out running now twice a week gradually building up the distance while improving my pace. I'm aiming for a consistant pace, not a fast time. If I can keep a consistant pace from start to finish and then reduce that pace I'm doing good.

For the past I don't know how many years I've had problems sleeping. Sometimes difficulty in getting to sleep, other times difficulty staying asleep. Even when I wake up thinking I've had a "good night"I am more tired, more drained and feel worse than when I went to bed.

I've been pestering the NHS for access to my medical records for the past few months, and finally I have some of the X-Rays taken back when I was involved in a large traffic accident.
