BREAKDOWN OF PARTICIPATION - SCKLM 2012

The organising team of the Standard Chartered Kuala Lumpur Marathon has made every effort to increase and generate interest among the running community to run the 42.195km year after year. This surely reflected well on the title and rightfully they can claim this as the largest and biggest Marathon running in Malaysia.

There is no easy way to complete a 42.195km but it is not impossible with the right support from all relevant parties particularly the Ministry of Youth & Sports, Kuala Lumpur City Hall and the Traffic Police. The Running community and the Public in general also can play an equally important role for this healthy sport.

Just 34 days to the big day. Are you ready to take on the City that Never Sleep on foot?

As usual, I'll be in my tortoise pace roaming the town on foot 'legally' (Thank You SCKLM for the opportunity) checking in to the various local food outlets, taking advantage of the 6 hours on the road. Remember to carbo load and hydrate well before the race.

See you on 24 June 2012 at Dataran Merdeka!

SHIN SPLINTS

by Mayo Clinic

Definition



If you have shin splints, you may notice tenderness, soreness or pain along the inner part of your lower leg. 

The term "shin splints" refers to pain along or just behind the shinbone (tibia) — the large bone in the front of your lower leg. Medically known as medial tibial stress syndrome, shin splints occur during physical activity and result from too much force being placed on your shinbone and connective tissues that attach your muscles to the bone. Shin splints are common in runners and in those who participate in activities with sudden stops and starts, such as basketball, soccer or tennis.
The risk of shin splints is no reason to give up your morning jog or afternoon aerobics class. Most cases of shin splints can be treated with rest, ice and other self-care measures. Wearing proper footwear and modifying your exercise routine can help prevent shin splints from recurring.

Symptoms
If you have shin splints, you may notice:
  • Tenderness, soreness or pain along the inner part of your lower leg
  • Mild swelling in your lower leg
At first, the pain may stop when you stop running or exercising. Eventually, however, the pain may be continuous.
When to see a doctor
Consult your doctor if rest, ice and over-the-counter pain relievers don't ease your shin pain. Your primary care doctor may refer you to an orthopedist. Seek prompt medical care if:
  • Severe pain in your shin follows a fall or accident
  • Your shin is hot and inflamed
  • Swelling in your shin seems to be getting worse
  • Shin pain persists during rest
Causes
Shin splints are caused by excessive force (overload) on the shinbone and the connective tissues that attach your muscles to the bone. The overload is often caused by specific athletic activities, such as:
  • Running downhill
  • Running on a slanted or tilted surface
  • Running in worn-out footwear
  • Engaging in sports with frequent starts and stops, such as basketball and tennis
Shin splints can also be caused by training errors, such as engaging in a running program with the "terrible toos" — running too hard, too fast or for too long.

Risk factors
ou're more at risk of shin splints if:
  • You're a runner, especially just beginning a running program
  • You have flat feet or rigid arches, causing your feet to roll inward when running
  • You increase the intensity of your workouts by doing more high-impact activities
  • You play sports on hard surfaces, with sudden stops and starts
  • You're in military training
Tests and diagnosis
Shin splints are usually diagnosed based on your medical history and a physical exam. In some cases, an X-ray or other imaging studies can help identify other possible causes for your pain, such as a stress fracture — tiny cracks in a bone often caused by overuse.
Treatments and drugs
In most cases, you can treat shin splints with simple self-care steps:
  • Rest. Avoid activities that cause pain, swelling or discomfort — but don't give up all physical activity. While you're healing, try low-impact exercises, such as swimming, bicycling or water running. If your shin pain causes you to limp, consider using crutches until you can walk normally without pain.
  • Ice the affected area. Apply ice packs to the affected shin for 15 to 20 minutes at a time, four to eight times a day for several days. To protect your skin, wrap the ice packs in a thin towel.
  • Reduce swelling. Elevate the affected shin above the level of your heart, especially at night. It may also help to compress the area with an elastic bandage or compression sleeve. Loosen the wrap if the pain increases, the area becomes numb or swelling occurs below the wrapped area.
  • Take an over-the-counter pain reliever. Try ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others), naproxen sodium (Aleve, others) or acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) to reduce pain.
  • Wear proper shoes. Your doctor may recommend a shoe that's especially suited for your foot type, your stride and your particular sport.
  • Consider arch supports. Arch supports can help cushion and disperse stress on your shinbones. Off-the-shelf arch supports come in various sizes and can be fitted immediately. More durable arch supports can be custom-made from a plaster cast of your foot.
Resume your usual activities gradually. If your shin isn't completely healed, returning to your usual activities may only cause continued pain.
Prevention
To help prevent shin splints:
  • Choose the right shoes. Wear footwear that suits your sport. If you're a runner, replace your shoes about every 350 to 500 miles (560 to 800 kilometers).
  • Consider arch supports. Arch supports can help prevent the pain of shin splints, especially if you have flat arches.
  • Lessen the impact. Cross-train with a sport that places less impact on your shins, such as swimming, walking or biking. Remember to start new activities slowly. Increase time and intensity gradually.
  • Add strength training to your workout. To strengthen your calf muscles, try toe raises. Stand up. Slowly rise up on your toes, then slowly lower your heels to the floor. Repeat 10 times. When this becomes easy, do the exercise holding progressively heavier weights. Leg presses and other exercises for your lower legs can be helpful, too.
It's also important to know when to rest; at the first sign of shin pain, take a break.

Participants were given the opportunity to make personal contributions through the 12 special bib numbers put up in a charity option, with all proceeds going to Kiwanis Malaysia’s programmes for children. It further generated an additional RM5,700 to the charity fund.

Energizer Malaysia will also enhance the contribution by aiming to raise another RM210,000 through the sales of Energizer products from March to May this year, where every pack sold contributes 30 sen to Kiwanis Malaysia. The total charity contribution target at the end of the campaign is RM345,000 which will benefit Kiwanis Malaysia’s 20 permanent Kiwanis Centres that serve and educate children and youths living with disabilities, as well as Kiwanis’ Going to School with Kiwanis programme that equips primary schoolchildren from poor families with a dictionary to inspire them to excel in school.
