So after deciding to go and purchase a proper pair of running shoes to ease my ankle pain I did see a vast improvement. But then the hot weather started and the gym that I go to doesn't have air conditioning which made it absolutely impossible to run in, so that was my first excuse, but since it has cooled a bit I am still unable to run for longer than ten minutes. I now have pains in my ankle again too but I was unable to run before that so I cant even blame that. I'm starting to get very frustrated with myself that I can make it past ten minutes and rapidly losing faith in the whole "running" thing.
To look at me you would think I should be able to run miles a day, I'm slim, relatively athletic build from weight training but all I want now is to be able to run and not have this constant voice in my head saying "this is too difficult, you have to stop now, your breathing is up the left, can you not feel that niggle in your ankle?, this is too hard, you cant do it".
