Does anybody here have experience running with flat feet? My ankles used to hurt after 3 miles of walking/running, I haven't really worked out recently though. Any advice appreciated.
i have flat feet and don't have too many problems. i wear Asics Gel Kayanos. when i first started, i went really slow. walking local hills, 1 miles, 2 miles, then 3 miles at anywhere from 15:00 to 20:00 min/mile pace. then i started working on speed and was able to get up to a 13:00 min/mile pace. that's when i started running and the transition wasn't too bad from walking to running. just take it easy and definitely watch for any pain especially when you're not running.
anyway, back OT, 6.67 today at about 8:13 pace.
