Gait analysis completed

I was really impressed with the service I received today. I used sweatshop at Brierley Hill. I was analysed by a young lad who told me as we chatted that he was doing a master's in sports science and was doing his dissertation on running. He was very thorough and I didn't feel pushed to buy anything. He mentioned insoles which I said I'd think about for another time. Apparently I have a neutral running style. He gave me a selection of shoes to try on and let me faff about chopping and changing, running around the store and trying to make up my mind. Eventually I went with New Balance 1080v3 which were I'm pleased to say in the sale.

Tomorrow is the all important first run in my new trainers and I will let you know how it goes. Tonight I'm going back to my childhood and wearing my new shoes around the house all evening. I don't think my OH will let me sleep in them! :-(

I say get in bed with them before he notices...just don't forget you can't try warming your feet up on him without giving the game away...

I've been faffing about getting the Brooks I was recommended because of price. Now I'm dreaming about them so need to just do it! You did make me laugh. I ALWAYS left new shoes by my bed so they were the last thing I saw at night and the first thing I saw in the morning! :-)
