Thank you to all who replied before when I was dithering over spending £25 on a gait analysis. Well, I just spent considerably more... 😳
The video was a bit shocking. I knew I over-pronated a bit but it was so obvious watching on video! I could see how stressful the impact was on my ankles and knees and whatever else. I tried on some ASICS GT-3000 5 (??!!!) with some serious cushioning in a size 7 (7! I’m a dainty 6!). Once I had got over the shock of the size of my flippers, the difference on video was obvious - everything in a straight line as it should be.
I was a bit worried before I went in that I wouldn’t be able to run for long enough to have an analysis done (😂) but it was only about 20 seconds of gentle jogging each time. I was a bit wobbly on the treadmill. T’aint natural.
Tomorrow I shall wear my new trainers for my first W2 run (no colour options so I’m stuck with grey and peach 🥴). Wish me luck and thanks again for the advice!
