For those that run, or did run how much did you think about your overall form?
This past year now has made me really examine my running overall in ways that I had not truly thought of. Mainly though of recent because of some rather severe shin pain I experienced and lack of overall improvement in my running. Now I feel like simply icing, stretching, and rolling the areas is not enough. More like a temporary fix to a real issue. On to that…...
About 2 weeks I ago finally decided that probably just needed a new pair of shoes. A small shop called Goldstream sports had a very good view of a camera on their tread mill for foot view and gait analysis. I was surprised to see how extreme my overpronation was and how much I landed on my heel.
Further, watching this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pODcT55_7zA) made a lot of sense why I feel such pain from my big toe like a wire connected straight to the shin area. Considering the areas that tend to take most impact and do most work.
After watching some youtube videos and reading articles on things it seems like really it is beyond the shoe, but mostly lays on myself for my running pains. Least in my conclusion. Just wanted to give some input on where I am coming from on the question.
Very curious to have feedback on this from community would be helpful. Please if you can go into detail it’d be great.
Some videos for reference or might interest you. All useful I believe, if you do watch them please give feedback here on it! Thanks.
