Striking harder on my right foot
I've generally only really ever run indoors on treadmills but started to do some runs outdoors lately. I just realised that I have a fairly uneven gait and strike the ground quite hard with my right foot. Are there any exercises/methods I can do to rectify this? It actually becomes quite painful after a while.
Very hard to say without seeing you run. It sounds bio mechanical, you might need orthotics or a heel lift. I'd suggest going for gait analysis at running shop or sports therapist.
