That popping feeling is called Fasciculation. When you work your muscles they contract and the blood vessels dilate. When you are done exercising and your body is returning to a normal state the twitching can occur. It should go away shortly after you finish your workout. This is normal after a good walk or jog..and usually sitting to rest. The feeling results in a "popcorn" feeling at the skins surface.

A popping sensation in your thighs when walking could be your muscles stretching. Some leg exercises should help relieve this pain.

You move forward when walking on a surface, and on a treadmill you stand still.

treadmill walking is at a steady incline, while nature-walking (or hiking) is at varying inclinations and terrain.

That is the correct spelling of the compound noun "treadmill" (stationary walking device).
