New Running Trainers!

New year, new trainers!!!

For the past few months I’ve been having trouble with my right knee, and thought it could be my trainers.

I had a look online for some information on the different types of running shoes and which is best but was overloaded with stuff!!

A colleague of mine mentioned they had something called Gait Analysis performed a few months back.

Gait analysis provides runners with essential information about their running style. Using this information, the right running trainers can then be selected.

I went to a local sports shop (Alpha Sports) who offer this service free of charge when purchasing a pair of trainers. I gave them my old trainers and told them about the pain in my right knee and they knew straight away what the problem was.

They suspected that I was over-pronating on my right foot.

They put me on the treadmill and they were right, I was over-pronating. This is shown in the left most image above.

They gave me a pair of 8mm offset trainers and put me back on the treadmill and the difference was amazing, i was no longer over-pronating!

They said these trainers should cure me knee pain, happy days!!

New Trainers

I love my new trainers!

    Nice shoes! It’s important to get shoes that work for your own feet. Happy running!
