Well I never thought I'd ever say that lol! I didn't even know what gait analysis was! I am suffering still with shin splints in my right leg, ooh ow ow! I am supposed to start week 9 tomorrow but honestly am limping around today so much I think I'm going to rest until the pain has gone. Yesterday I went into Darlington to a shop called Up & Running that I had found online, they do gait analysis! Well the trainers I have been wearing were a second hand bargain of off eBay - asics but nothing special - I had figured they would be ok until I knew whether or not I was going to stick to running or not. Apparently they are no better than a 'lesuire shoe' so no support and no wonder I have shin splints! The running treadmill was placed in the SHOP WINDOW! Eeek! Plus I have never run on a treadmill before which was a whole new experience! But I rolled up my trousers and off I went! Apparently I have a lovely straight run technique (emulating smugness) so I tried on a few pairs or trainers - settled on a fantastic azure blus pair of Brooks Ghost 4 that feel like slippers on my feet! According to my two teen daughters they are "minging shoes" but hey I didn't see any running shoes in the shop that were endorsed by Justin Bieber or Jessie J so I have to remain uncool in their world but I cannot wait to try em out!
