Does anyone else experience pain in the pads of their heels as they use the elliptical? For some reason it always kills me...

No...I just get numbness in my toes. Maybe it's the way your foot is shaped, or maybe you need more appropriate sneakers.

I love the elliptical machine, I've never had a problem with pains from that. But I hate the treadmill. It gives me shin splints. Kills my shins. I guess its just the impact.

to the op- maybe the tension is not tight enough and you are coming down too fast or with too little resistance onto your heels?

My toes fall asleep too... it is so weird, some machines more then others, I have tired everything going forward switching to backwards, many times I just have to stop shake out my legs and start again.... can't do it for more than 1 hr because of issues.

If you're getting shin splints on the treadmill, the odds are your muscles aren't balanced- a common occurance if you wear high heels much. Proper stretching before and after, and starting slow can get rid of shin splints. The problem isn't the treadmill, the problem is your muscles.
Elliptical movement isn't really anything like walking and can't be compared to a treadmill. So to say it's the impact of the treadmill that gives you shin splints is wrong.

but why then can I walk for miles and miles outside but as soon as I do 1 mile on a treadmill, shin splints, warm up the same and time to be going about same speed on treadmill and outside.

Shin splints from the treadmill is usually caused by setting it at too high of a pace. I used to have that happen all the time but I stopped trying to walk so quickly and it stopped. I also had numbness in my toes while doing the elliptical and I found that after about 5 min it would stop.
