Question To runners

Ive really hurt my ankles and lower half of one leg thru running, when i bend my feet upwards the top bit of my ankles really hurts and the inside lower bit of my calf hurts aswel. I tried to go out but i ended up hobbeling home- i got sum "running shoes" specifically so i cud go out on the roads and grass. They cost about £65 in the shops and so i thought they wud be ok. Because ive hurt myself i cant go out at the moment which is majorly frustrating to say the least. Do i need to get sum new shoes? if so which ones, and why arent the ones i got gud enuf? i thought by "running shoes" they wud be gud enuf to go running in! thanx for any advise

Re: To runners

What you're describing sounds like "shin splints" which is kind of a misnomer, because it is basically just very sore muscles around the shin. If you are new to running, this is quite common. You need to take it slowly and build some endurance. Once the pain in the shins/ankles is gone, start running in intervals for a while (run for a couple minutes, walk for a couple minutes, repeat). It will help to build those muscles until you can run longer distances without pain. Sounds like you have a fairly good pair of shoes, so I wouldn't lay the blame there just yet.

Re: To runners

i was doing this, because i cudnt run all the time i walked for a while in between aswell, and i was going at quite a slow pace. Are their special shoes for hard surffaces, or are the running shoes i got perhaps just for normal running tracks which are a softer surface?
