Went for a gait analysis today and was found to have over pronation on both feet, in particular my right foot which, naturally, is the tendon i get most pain in.
£110 later (wahhh) and I have super comfortable and supportive trainers running shoes (good news) but also have been advised by the lovely and helpful assisstant to rest for a week before trying them out (bad news). This is all going to interfere with my lovely asics plan for the great south run.
But thats not the worst of it.....
I didnt realise it was "over pronation" and called it "over pronounciation" about 16 times.
Has anyone else had achilles soreness and were able to carry on running after adequate rest?
