Too much, too fast.: Working on your feet for 50 hours per week is a lot, especially if you are not used to it. If this is part of your life style change, I commend you. Leg and back pain, as you describe, could be the result of too much activity, too fast. You body may need time to adjust to this degree of work. It goes without saying that a great pair of shoes and perhaps some focused core strengthening may help.
