NOTE: somehow this was made in the wrong section. i clicked on training forum...not excersize science. mods..please move.
ive been trying to get back into shape so ive been adjusting my cardio.
im still unsure as to whether i should keep doing 1 hour of medium paced cardio or 30 minutes of higher paced cardio.
in any case, so far my cardio has had some interval training on the treadmill (for 15/60 minutes). somewhere around 8 minutes into it my shins begin to hurt. its not a good hurt like you know its working...its a burning painful hurt.
ive changed my shoes numerous times, tried running on the street vs. treadmill. but i dont know what this is. nothing else hurts like that. the other muscles get sore of course, but its not the same pain.
have any of you ever had shin splints? does this sound like them? what have you done to fix it?
BTW: this is a new phenomenon for me. it never used to happen when i jogged. as near as i can remember it happened when i was running up some hills near my school (about 3-4 months ago).
