Road running has countless physical and mental benefits, it’s a great way
to de-stress, as well as improving cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength and endurance. Road running is an incredibly efficient way to travel long distances. In fact, many experts believe that running is the best way to get from one place to another. But if you want to run efficiently, you need to take some considerations into account such as gait analysis to reduce injury risks. Gait analysis is the study of your foot’s alignment with the ground as you run, there are three types of gait – neutral, overpronation (as the foot plants on the ground, the foot rolls inwards, transferring weight to the inner-edge of the foot), and underpronation (transferring weight to the outer-edge). Overpronation affects 70% of the population, knowing your gait is essential to your body’s health, that’s why Runners Need offers free gait analysis from our in-store experts.
