Yes, and I was wearing them when I was running last night, but not at any of the times I felt the twinges.

If you know you are pronating ... do you have the shoes to help correct that?

I just started having a twinge in one ankle, not exactly painful and I've found I can prevent it by consciously walking more "straight on" (I tend to twist my feet inward, can't remember if it is pronating or suppinating). It just started a few days ago. I ran with it last night (I'm on week 2 of the C25K) and didn't have any problems, but it is happening occasionally in general life. Today I started wearing an ace bandage to remind me to pay attention to how I step, and it is helping, though not completely.

I want to nip this in the bud as quickly as possible, after having seen a coworker go through two ankle operations, months and months of recovery and physical therapy, and a lot of pain because she let something go and her body found a workaround that was bad for her in the long run. I am pretty large (currently 220 lbs.) and know that running stressful to my joints and want to do what I can to minimize that as I lose weight.

Can any of you recommend anything I can do or watch for to make sure I am running correctly?
