Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community! I remember the first time I toured college campuses, I walked so much my shins were killing me!
Shin splints are are the throbbing aching feeling you feel in your shins after strenuous activity.
Here is a great article from the EmpowHER community about what shin splints are and how to prevent them. I hope that you find it helpful!
I hope this answers your question Carrie!
