I started running 1.5 miles every day for the past 2 weeks and after every run my ankles really hurt, some days more than others. I do 45 jumping jacks and the first 0.5 mile I powerwalk to warm up. I run on concrete the whole time round a residential area. I'm using proper Nike running shoes and I put some gel innersoles in to try and cushion my ankles against the concrete put its not helping. I know my running style is not the problem and it cant be the shoes. Round my area theres A LOT of joggers/runners who all run on concrete paths like me so I know the surface isn't the problem either.
I've read up about stretching first and some websites say only stretch after a run, some say before, and others say dont stretch cold muscles. which is correct? and are there any specific ankle stretches to do?
Thanks in advance
