I strongly recommend you go to a running store and have your stride analyzed. You need shoes specific to your strengths/weaknesses particularly when you are increasing mileage. Do you have a runnin store near you? They'll out you on a treadmill and video tape just your feet while you run for thirty seconds. Then theyll bring out a few samples in your area of need. I tend to overpronate so I need support shoes that are designed to force my feet to run flatter and not let me roll my left foot (gymnastics injury from back in the day). It is night and day when you run in a pair of shoes designed to help you. If you are one of the lucky ones that has a perfect stride, they can still recommend good shoes for you. I personally love my revennas (Brooks) but a lot of my running club girls swear by saucony. Good luck and let me know how it goes!
