How do i find out my running style?

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. In order to buy myself a good pair of running shoes, i dont have access to any specialist shops etc to test my running style, so is there a reasonably neutral type of trainer i should be looking for, or one i should avoid?
  2. Look at the way your current pairs of trainers wear down. If they wear predominately on the outside of your foot you under-pronate. If your trainers wear down on the inside of your foot you over-pronate. Over-pronating feet require good arch support, so look for trainers that offer good arch support or invest in a decent set of orthotic insoles.

    Another simple test to check what kind of foot you have is to follow this guide (Admittedly it's very ball-park but its a step in the right direction) No bloody pun intended :D :
  3. Went down to my gym and had a word with the PT's down there, they took a look at my trainers and gave me an idea of what i needed.

    I bought some New Balance 1024's today, at JJB. Got chatting to the guy and mentioned im going through the process for the RN and he gave me 10%.

    Apparently all MOD get the discount -didnt know you still get it if you're not actually in yet though!
