been running for about 3 weeks, always had shin pain when running, but i can sorta tackle it by making sure to land on the ball of my foot when running, but today i had really bad lactic acid buildup in my shins/calfs and couldn't even run.
I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but some months back i had some kind of injury or whatever in my forearms which made it hurt when i do some curling motion, that requires the wrist to remain straight holding up weight.
At that time, when i hit a certain point( some where on my bone in the forearm) i felt a pain, and it was only on that spot.
I can do the same thing with my shins now, if i hit a certain spot i can feel pain even when not hitting hard.
So what do you think it is? i am pretty sure the pain and lactic acid buildup is related to each other, might it be that my calfs are to tight? some guy said that, that might be it.
