I'm 3 months into anterior tibial tendonitis and am getting frustrated with the slow progress. Still can't run more than a few miles with irritating it. I've been fitted with custom orthotics, am working on gastroc/soleous flexibility, and doing ankle stability exercises. I've given up on the regular icing. Also cross-training on the elliptical 4-5 times a week. Any suggestions?

I would agree with Michelle, especially the tip on avoiding hills as it may cause additional strain to the muscle. Have you visited any health care providers? Graston or ART (soft tissue therapies) may be helpful for you based on the information you posted.
