Lower leg tingling after running?

I've recently started a 5k running programme and am at the end of week 2. I've noticed that after I've stopped the running portion and I'm brisk walking/cooling down both of my legs tingle in a sort of numb, almost pins and needles like way. It only affects the front of my legs and only between the knee and ankles. I also have a protruding bit of muscle below my knees (to the outside of each knee) that I'm not entirely sure was that obvious beforhand. I have had shin splints in the past and think this could maybe be related?

I always warm up and stretch so I'm hoping it's not nerve related :eek:/

Any ideas/advice/sympathy welcome lol!

hey rachel, i know you said you warm up and stretch, but do u stretch before and after uve finished? its really important for the muscle to return to normal size after finishing.
not sure but the muscle protruding, think id go to gp just in case.
