As you know my right knee has been troublesome of late although it had improved since Friday (thanks to copious amounts of drugs and rest). Yesterday I was completely pain free and was the same when I got up this morning. I thought I would seize this opportunity to for my gait analysing. It turns out I'd solved the problem before I'd left the house! Within 5 minutes of putting my trainers on my knee pain was back I still went for the gait though to confirm what I knew and work out which way my foot needed support. My current shoes were neutral so offered neutral support.
The results show I over pronate with my right foot and thus, put stress on my knee in the exact spot I have the pain. I've picked some new shoes but won't be picking them up till next weekend (hubby's payday and to make sure I don't run till then, still need to rest up and clear the swelling). I definitely recommend the gait, if only for peace of mind. I wish I'd gone before I bought my first runners as less than 3 months of use and they're unwearable Never mind, live and learn
