You may be in less pain running on an elliptical machine. You don't pound your feet on the pavement on them,

Hi! Hopefully your new shoes will make a difference. You might also consider insoles that are made for really absorbing the impact. Obviously, you should check with your doctor to make sure there isn't anything medical going on in terms of new fractures or anything, but for me, the new supportive and shock absorbing insoles made a difference with the pain in my calves (not the shins--just the calves straight up from the ankle bone). Weird.

Good luck!

Sorry to hear it. I absolutely understand what you're saying. Personally, I hate the actual running part but I love the way that I feel afterwards, enough to make the first part worth doing. I've experienced the two-steps-forward then on-step-backwards over and over again.

It's really hard not to get discouraged but please try to look to the future. New shoes might be all you need. I got so bad with my back pain that I struggled to walk, and relied on lidocaine patches to get me through a day at work. It took a long time to reach the end of that dark tunnel but I'm able to run again. (BTW, it was a wonderful chiropractor who helped me).

Oh, and to add to the frustration, after two weeks of diligently watching my diet and increasing my activity, the scale has not budged. emoticon

After a two year love/hate relationship with running, I've been running regularly since Jan 1. I'm doing a training program with the Running Room and I'm now up to 4min run/1 min walk. About 10 years ago I broke my left foot and had it surgically repaired. Now that I'm increasing my running intervals, my left ankle is causing a great deal of pain and I can't go any faster or further despite having improved my cardiovascular abilities. Today while running it was hurting so much I was in tears and almost threw up. I'm so discouraged. I'm going to start by getting fitted for new shoes this week. I'm a supinator and I wear trail runners as I've found them to be the least painful. Hopefully new shoes will get me through this. Sorry for the whining, I just need a little support to encourage me to keep going.
