Health + Injury
Ultra / Adventure racing
When i run/walk i tend to do so on the outsides of my feet. Is this ok? i try to run straighter but i find it difficult.
what do u think?
If it's OK for you and isn't causing any injuries, then I'm sure it's fine. <ost people land on the outsides of their feet - the degree to which your foot then rolls inwards determines whether you over-pronate or not (at least, that's my understanding).
I would say that generally speaking, trying to change the way you run naturally is likely to result in injury. As long as it isn't causing problems, I wouldn't worry about it.
Have you had gait analysed at a proper running shop? If the way you run IS likely to damage you they can advise a shoe to protect your feet when you run.
