Deuce,

Had the same problem when I started running, pain in the lower back. Was out running with an experienced runner one day who was running a few feet behind me, when we had finished the run he told me I needed a new pair of trainers as I was turning in on my feet. He told me to go along to a specialist running shop to get a decent pair of trainers. I had been runing in bog standard off the shelf running shoes. Since I got a new pair which suited my running style have never had any problems.

Find a good shop that deals with athletes, do a google search to find one around your area. They will take a look at your running style etc. and advise on the type of running shoe you need, it's worth it in the end even if you have to pay a little bit more for some good runners.

Good advice from 2bish. Its the best way to do it. If you can't get to a specialist shop then you could go to the Runnersworld website and if you have a hunt around it will tell you how to find out which type of trainers suit you and recommend some.
Also on the Asics website they have a Shoe Advisor but obviously it only recommends Asics.

all sound advice there fellas

its worth going to see a sports injury physio and have yourself assessed - it could be your trainers, or it could be the 'style' in which you run!

Spending as much as you can on a good pair of cross trainers may not cure your ills - get a good physical check up by a specialist - my problem was corrected by the simple insertion of heal raises

good luck
