FYI, this wasn't true for me. I changed to a forefoot strike, and was super excited because it felt so great...and unfortunately, I overdid it. Way, way, way overdid it. And that led to a shin splint. I had to rest for two weeks -- no more walking, let alone jogging, so it was back to the exercise bike for me for those weeks. But again, for me it was caused by overdoing it -- too much, too fast, for too long a time.
