I've been wondering about this too as I have started running about 4 weeks ago and tend to get pain midway thru the workout (C25K) in the upper middle area of my shin, near my knee. I'm trying to make sure I thorougly workout tension in my IT band because it hurts a lot after a run.
Thank you. I did think it felt strange and when I watch athletes they seem to be running differently. To me. I am getting shin pain when I run and this time I am NOT giving up. I did wonder if it was technique. Sorry for such a basic question!

You should try to land with a flat foot. If that is impossible, run in a way that is most natural feeling to you.
