Hi all, hope you are well.
I've been to a local specialist running shop and had my gait analysed. The funny thing was the lady, who was brilliant and knowledgeable, said I had a really natural running style...I lift my legs properly and my shoulders are relaxed...can't believe it as I thought I looked like an idiot !!
I'm a fairly neutral runner but land heavier on my left leg. I pronate very slightly. She is totally correct as my left shin hurts more than my right. My shoes are trail shoes ( got them due to running on the canal tow path which us pretty lethal) but aren't cushioned enough for me.
So I've come away with some sparkly new Brooks Adrenaline with 20% off, which are amazingly comfy. I had to run up and down the street which was a bit embarrassing and also on the treadmill, which was the weirdest thing ever. So glad I run outside. Didn't like the treadmill at all.
So my new shoes get their first adventure tomorrow afternoon. Will see how I do
