my old trainers (asics nimbus 12) had seen better days so i had a gait analysis before buying new ones. my old ones had been fine but thought i should just double check that i was wearing the correct shoes. i was told that i over pronate slighly in the left foot and neutral in the right so i was advised to buy support shoes ( my old ones were neutral), tried them out tonight for the first time and they were ok but not completly convinced. My knees ached but then they ached in the old ones by the end as im in the middle of marathon training!
i am now thinking that the girl in the shop didnt really know what she was talking about and am worried that wearing the wrong trainers will end in injury?? am running the edinburgh marathon in a month and not sure what to do. any advise would be great!
