Since starting running over a month ago, I’ve been stuck on the injury couch after an overzealous sprint at the end of a week 2 run. Took myself off to the local university sports physio and found out that I have weak hips, tight tendon in the left knee, bit of a it band issue in the right leg, weak glutes etc. I then had weeks of excercises and physio with a running ban in place. At last I had a shot on the treadmill yesterday which the physio analysed. Apparently my stride length is ok but I heel strike ( which he said was fine) and I have a tendency for my left leg to come in closer to right at times rather than even alignment. He reckons this is common and we can work on correcting it. He has advised that I get some stability running shoes. Did a bit of research last night and now I’m more confused than ever. Is it ok to heel strike if you have an issue with knees? I was also reading that stability shoes make people heel strike more. Btw I really enjoyed the run after all these weeks even if it was only for a couple of minutes. Reading your posts really helped to keep me motivated so thanks!
