Hi Stuart, definitely go to a specialist store who can analyse your gait & get you fitted with the right running shoes. You may need some kind of arch support, they will be able to advise you on this.
Whilst your injury is healing, concentrate on core work at the gym; abs, back, glutes, etc. Core strength is key for running & will help protect your lower legs from injury. When you get back to running again, start with three runs a week, not on consecutive days. Include cycling, swimming & especially gym/core work on the other days & one rest day per week.
