Advice please on painful ankle/foot

Help! I have done my W2R1 but it's taken me 3 weeks to get here. Every time I run once I finish my right foot is so painful to walk on. The pain is around my ankle and it stops me from running for a few days, which is frustrating as I just want to get out and do more. Someone recommend i get gaite checked? Has anyone had the same and did the check and potential new shoes Help?

Yes, sounds like you need a gait analysis and some appropriate shoes before you run again.

Have a look for sports/running shops in your area. They'll be able to help.

In the meantime, get some ice on the ankle.

Good luck!
