Yes, I mean the shin.
The pain is like in the bone of the shin, it sorta feels like I would imagine a bone being split apart length wise, but it does hurt in the bone area and not the muscle around the bone and it gets worse the further I go. Last night, I only walked fast and I barely made it for a mile, and this morning the shins still hurt like hell.
I do stretch maybe not enough not sure there. I work my calves and have been since I started working out again. Have dropped weight from 310 down to between 281 and 286 is what I seem to range here lately.
When I first started lifting, people told me to Lift Big, Eat Big and Get Plenty of rest to Grow Big. These same people told me, that by increasing my lean mass (muscle) I would increase my metabolism thus burn more fat. So that is what I did. They said that by doing cardio, you burn lean mass and therefore I should not do cardio.
Anyway, I hope this answers your questions and thanks for the feedback.
