Hi im new here

little quick history
im 18 used to run alot of cross countries when i was younger until had a serious problem with my knees then got back into it and managed to damage my ankle after a number of steroid injections im now allowed to run properly again

only allowed on the treamill incase anything happens as i have one at home

just wondering if anyone has any training programmes which can easy my battered legs back into it?

also any really supportive and shock absorbing trainers?

thank you

Hi tigger, welcome to the forum :)

The fact that you'll be running on a treadmill will reduce the shock compared to running outside a fair bit - it's a much more forgiving surface. Most trainers will be able to offer a level of cushioning and stability, but there's not one specific shoe/trainer that can really be recommended to you without being able to take a proper look at your running style.

If you can get yourself to a running specialist store, they'll be able to suggest suitable trainers for you (hopefully with the aid of 'gait analysis') and you should soon be back on track with your running :)
