Running Gait Analysis

>>  Thursday, December 09, 2010

AuntieGwen told me the reason why I was getting March fractures was because I needed to visit the wee beardy boy and because I didn't want to make her all shouty, off I poddled.

It's great!  The wee beardy boy turned out to be my daughter's primary school teacher's brother-in-law and he lives in the next village to me!!  (Was that TMI or do you now know me well enough to know that I would talk the hind legs off a donkey?)

I tried on at least 5 pairs of different trainers and I was filmed in each whilst I ran on a treadmill, he analysed my gait in detail to work out which pair would be best for my running style.  Turns out I'm a free flowing neutral with a high arch, I paid less money for a pair of good running shoes than I would pay at the average sports ripoff.  I was expecting to have to pay a lot more than that so I bought myself a new thermal running top to make up the difference.  Pure women shopping logic. *high five's with AuntieGwen*

The service was fantastic, the chap was really helpful and he wasn't on the hard sell.  If you don't get your shoes from him the analysis is £20.  Free if you buy your shoes there.  Seriously, if you're in the Midlands area and enjoy your running and love your feet I really recommend the Leicester running shop.

I liked that I got full service in the same amount of time I spend just trying to attract the attention of a disinterested teenager in the chain stores.  He was also seriously interested in me and my running, the first person ever!  

I'm off for run!
