Since starting running eighteen years ago I used to always overpronate and used to correct it with supportive shoes.
Three years ago I started my dabbling in minimalist/barefoot shoes and have made a pretty good transition. In changing from heel striking to forefoot striking I also changed into a natural gait with no evidence of pronation on the sole.
Now my legs and feet are comfortable with flatter shoes it's become apparent that i've eveloed into a huge superpronator where the outside edge touches the ground first, rolls onto the middle of the sole and pushes off before the inside edge of the sole can get a look in.
As it's the beginning of the new year and I'm hammering the easy miles for a deep base I'm altering my gait so that i'm landing neutral rather than pronated. What i'm wondering is - is this a good idea or should i just let my feet do what they want to do; am i riskingsomething by conciously correcting my form?
Thanks, and sorry for the long post.
