New asics and gait

New asics and gait

So I'm just getting off the injury couch after 8 days,  kept pulling my right calf and so my knees hurt,  I went to sweatshop Ipswich yesterday and had a gait analysis,   it was really good.  I was a bit apprehensive thinking it would turn into a sales pitch for expensive shoes but that was not the case.  The young lady knew her stuff and after finding out my right foot pronates slightly and I heel strike,  she showed me lots of different shoes and I tried them on the treadmill both with thermal moulded inners and without. 

I settled on the asics GT2000,  they are super comfy and  super bouncy to stop me jarring my knees. I'm trying them tonight 😀
