  • Mine too! Don't run in the pavement and rest from running. Build up your workout.

  • start with walking. then walk further and faster. then you can add intervals of jogging, then lengthen the jogging intervals. go slow, let your body get used to it. get really good shoes for you. go to a running shoe store and get fitted. i don't think it is a good idea to push ypur body beyond it's limits. listen to your body. if running hurts your ankles, then walk.

  • Happy2bemom25 has some sound advice.... get a good pair of running shoes, with good arch support and a stiff, cushioned sole. Don't forget the post run/walk stretch... you get a better stretch when your muscles are at their warmest.
