Pain around the front of my leg

I usually start feeling pain in the front of my leg after the first run or two. Could this be my angles?

Yup pretty much, could it be from plowing down the mountain as well? Excessive heel side?

It could be a number of things, it's kind of hard to say.

I doubt it's your binding angle, usually you will get knee pain if it's related to binding angles or width as your knees will experience the most pressure from an unnatural stance.

Is it both legs or just one? Have you had any issues in the past with your legs? Does it hurt if you go running?

I'm thinking, since you mentioned plowing down the mountain, it could be from excessive heel side. When you pull your toes up toward your shins, the front of your shins flex. It's odd that you would get pain from it though.

No issues in the past but it is happening in both legs. Maybe not even pain but almost feels like pressure. Doesn't hurt if I go running or even lift in the gym.

LOL this was an issue from my first season when I would go on a long green plowing the whole way. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't any of my gear since I am headed to Vail in a week.

Thanks man

Is it near your boots? That's the only thing I can really think of. Maybe they are causing some sort of pressure on your shin. Maybe the liners are too tight? I'm not sure. If you get the pain again, try adjusting your boots some and see if that helps.

If your getting a pain in your shins I am starting to think it might be your forward lean with your highbacks. Try setting them back a little more and see what happens. Do you have a really aggressive forward lean on them?

Other than that, I would just think your boots might be too tight around your foot and ankle area and not tight enough around your upper shin causing alot of stress on your shin.

That's a good thought about forward lean, I didn't think about that at all.

It's probably your boots not fitting well or being too stiff. The forward lean could be part of it but if I had to bet money on what's causing your pain I would definitely go with it being your boots.

Did you have this issue with your previous boots, or are these your first pair?

Could be your angle, could be the muscle in your leg that causes shin splints. What kinds of other exercise do you do?

Read on another forum: "If someone held a gun to my head and said, "You have to move to Salida tomorrow", I'd probably do it. If they told me I had to go to Breckenridge instead, I think I'd just let them pull the trigger."
