Default When I use the treadmill how come...

my shins and calves hurt about 5 minutes into it? I thought it was because I didn't stretch enough, but today I could only do about 5 minutes at a time and then I had to go stretch again? They don't do that if I'm just walking on the ground.

Could be your shoes. What type of shoes are you wearing? Do you have a serious running store near where you live? There is one near me that when I go they watch me run/walk to see what type of shoe would suite me best. They don't really let you pick out what you'd like.......they tell you what you should be wearing for optimum results.

Hmm... I didn't want to spend a lot of $ on shoes, but you could be right.

Also, it's walking, not running, so I wouldn't expect it to be as bad, but I still may need new shoes.

I'm betting it is. I used to have the same problem until I found New Balance. They are the only shoes that I can wear w/o having shin pain.

Sometimes you need to try out different shoes to find the ones that work for you.

Word of advice, once you find that "pair" that works, buy multiple parts of the same kind.

You might have shin-splints too. Ice your ankles before you start your workout and see if that helps.

Ugh! I hope I don't have shin splints! Wouldn't it be alot more painful? And how come it's only on the treadmill?

How do I go about this icing my ankels thing?
