    Three years ago I couldn't walk at all. Now I'm able to walk 1 1/2 to 2 miles per day, with no real training for the last year. I'm hoping to increase my daily endurance over the next year and a half...

    A hearty thank you to everyone who offered their wisdom so far!

    That's my primary concern. I ordered from RevZilla so they'll be here soon enough, and I'll know for sure. If they're insufficient I'll exchange them for something with better ankle support. However,...
