In brief: Couple possibilities

Based on the information available, i believe the most likely diagnostic possibilities include shin splints, medial tibial stress syndrome, exercise induced compartment syndrome, or a stress fracture.
The treatments for each are different. See an orthopedist for an evaluation.
