Bare with me, i'm terrible at explaining stuff and dont know many technical terms, but will try to explain as best I can.
I set off on a morning run yesterday and less than a mile in to it, my shins felt like they were on fire, a bit like you get from extreme muscle fatigue, but in my shins, not the muscles as the muscles felt fine. It got to a point where I slowed to a walk and it eased off and I'd run a minute or two and then it would come back.
Disheartened and wondering what it could be, I decided to change footwear to see if it could be that so this morning I put on a new pair with fitted insoles that I had sat at home and set off. Again, the burning feeling came back and I tried running through it but eventually slowed to a walk, it eased off and I continued with the walk, ease off, run again until I got home only this time I could run for longer periods than yesterday. Standing on the balls of my feet and lifting my toes made the shins burn too.
I'm at a loss really. I've only been running since October, usually 6-10 miles, 3-4 times a week, although the last couple of months I have been running on and off for various reasons. Still, I've been running recently and it was fine, and never had this 'burning' in my shins before, not that I can remember anyway. Also, not sure how relevant it is, but might be, I train legs in the gym on various weight machines and do squats once a week.
Does anyone have an idea what it could be and how to fix it?
