Gait Analysis

After reading previous posts and reading the advice given by Iannodatruffe I had my gait analysed. I did what he suggested and entered gait analysis in my area and it came up with a couple of suggestions. I did have to sign up for a Core card to get the gait analysis for free. No hardship. They choice a standard running shoe first in which to run a treadmill. My run was videoed and then analysed.

I actually run quite heavily and my feet tend to move outwards thus the risk of a twisted ankle or joint problems. I was then advised on the type of running shoe for me with an insole for added support. I picked a pair of runners and then we tried various insoles and each time my gait was being analysed.

With the advice I was given based on my gait analysed I now have new runners which I will trying out on tomorrow’s W4R3.
