Stay off the cement.

Exercise on forgiving surfaces such as a running track, crushed gravel, and grass. If you have to run on roads, try to choose streets paved in asphalt rather than concrete to reduce the likelihood of developing shin splints. If you do aerobics, stay away from cement floors, even those that are carpeted. Suspended wood floors are best.
