>Health and Nutrition>I have never ran long distances before but.
I hope it is rested enough to not hurt today. I mess up on the first day of running, trying to do too much at the begining. I got a pair of ghost 5 running shoes, I hope they help also.
i think aches are (unfortunately) expected at different times when we exercise........ ankle pain i tend to think of as sneakers and foot landing. sometimes, i do simple things like run on the neighbor's grass and skip a bit of the sidewalk. it tends to help - is softer.... just be careful not to trip! grass and trails aren't nearly as smooth as concrete... hope it's helpful. and that the aches have gone away.
Spring- wishful thinking
. If you haven't run in a while, you need 6 months of training minimum to do a half the right way unless you want to risk injury.
There are many 18 week to marathon programs that have you running 13 miles for a long run 12-14 weeks in. Although I agree you need to start slow, 6 months to train for a half is pretty excessive.
MTA -Like Hal Higdon's novice program.
6 months is a long time.
I am going to try and find a half marathon in Nov or Dec.
