I've been training for the Belfast marathon since September but recently I've hit a roadblock in my training in that every time I go out running recently I wind up with a sore knee afterwards.
Since September I was running on an old pair of puma shoes with a very flat sole (http://is.puma.com/pisa2?fn=/30/3035/303521/303521_01/303521_01.jpg&w=350&h=409&bg=256,256,256
that I was told were very bad for running in- but I was doing 6/7miles, 5 nights a week without any problems.
Then as a Christmas present I was taken to a running shop& had my gait analysed&was bought a pair of Asics running shoes for someone with high arches which the girl said I had. However from the first time I ran with them I have always had a sore knee the next day. A friend suggested to take a week break so I did, but when I went running again last night I could feel knee pain in the first mile&by the end of my run it was quite sore.
Do you guys think that the new shoes could be the problem&I should go back to the old ones? Or could the damage have been done already&im only feeling the pain now that I have proper shoes?
Any advice would be much appreciated!
