Ankle joint pain after running

User Profile
i have been training for police academy and am required to run alot. i've been running with good shoes (new balance, custom fit) on regular pavement. i notice my ankles will hurt very badly the next day to the point i cannot run and it is even very sore to walk.

i've been running for approximately 1 month now (at least everyother day), and i make sure to stretch before and after.

any info you can give me would be much appreciated.

an orthopedic feet disorder. First you can try new shoes and reduce the physical efforts. If doesn’t help you can consult an orthopedist for an examination and expert opinion.
