I'd appreciate any advice from any runners. I'm trying to get fit again. I have a fairly serious back disease, similar to rheumatoid arthritis, so have to avoid any impact to my hips, spine and neck.
I have a cross trainer which is o.k. as far as it goes, but doesn't get me as fit as running did. I've tried running again today and was pretty fit, but could feel the impact through my body.
My question is, will a quality pair of running shoes help with the impact ( I just used trainers today) or would I be better off with a decent treadmill. I prefer to run outdoors, but unless I can lessen the impact, that's unlikely to be possible.
