Time to step up the training; I hear the course is hilly! I went swimming on Monday for the first time in a few weeks. I should've gone for a run this evening. Oh, I bought new running shoes recently; this time they're Brooks with some serious stability. I went to a Heart and Sole where they do some gait analysis. Apparently my left foot pronates a lot. My right foot does too but not quite so much. The running shoe "code" for stability is a gray instep; on my shoes, the gray goes all the way back to the heel! I've only run in them a couple of times so far, but so far they feel fine. I wish I'd asked to do the gait analysis in my old shoes (they put you in a neutral shoe when you go in) just to see if I was pronating badly in them. I do feel arch support in them, and the wear pattern is from the outside of the heels to the mid/inside of the forefoot. When we were watching the video of my feet on the treadmill (at the store) my husband noticed that when I step forward with my right foot as I run, my foot crosses the center line whereas my left foot just goes straight forward . Hmm.
