I'm new to running having been a swimmer for a few years. I'm really enjoying it so far and it gives a really dfferent buzz to swimming! I've only been at it for a couple of weeks and I'm experiencing some ankle discomfort. I'm aware that although I'm not out of shape I haven't actually done much that involves running for quite a long time, so I'm trying to be sensible and not overdo it. I do more or less do have to run on tarmac, and I've diagnosed myself as an over-pronater so I've a second pair of Asics on the way to help with that. I'm also wearing ankle supports and making sure I warm up / cool dpwn properly. Can I assume that in time my body will adjust and strengthen and the ankle discomfort will fade? Is there anything else I should do to make sure I don't cause myself any problems?
