    Oh no, this has been going on for a few weeks, walking home from school. Going home from school is about a mile uphill. I know this has been going on at least since that last post of stupid feet of doom and so it's been going on even before that.

    "You're walking uphill a mile it's supposed to hurt stupid" is what I'm thinking but it's not like exertion hurt. I don't know what it is.

    Stretch your legs fully before walking home, see if that has any impact. Walking uphill may be lengthening some muscles and tightening others without balancing them out. Sure walking uphill may cause discomfort but shooting pain isn't a natural side effect of walking.

    Yes, stretching is really quite important.

    How old are your shoes, Hap? Old shoes could play a role in your pain as well.

    If I recall, you are walking over a mile each day. You'll be surprised how quickly running/cross country/etc shoes lose their cushioning with that kind of walking. If I recall, we are talking about 3 months if that.

    I only got my shoes about a month ago -- my old ones were completely falling apart. I can't really think of .8 miles there and .8 miles back as that much.

    I'll try stretching, I haven't before. Usually I'm too eager to get out of there. If that doesn't work, well, I suppose I can always start taking the bus again.

    They don't happen to coincide with when your legs started hurting do they? It's not new shoes that matter, it's the kind of support they offer.

    I started walking home (uphill) about the same time I bought new shoes, so I wouldn't be able to tell.

    I recommend you not walk at all for the rest of the week so your shins can recover a bit. This isn't the type of pain you want to force yourself through.

    Next week, if you are feeling mostly better, resume the downhill walks only. If you are feeling good by the end of next week, then you can add 1 or 2 uphill walks for the week after that.

    Err, I have to walk to school, there's no other way for me to get there. I can rest over the long weekend, though.

    Or moon walk. Lower gravity is less straining on the shins!
