And sometimes, professional advice doesn't help either. There's just too many variables for anyone to be sure.
Is it your weight?
Is it your biometrics?
Is it your running style?
Is it your running style and trainers?
Is it your training? (Too much too fast?)
Is it some combination of the above?
Personally, I don't trust instore gait analysis tests, there's no evidence that this works. A big study was done on soldiers in the US where some were gait analysed and others weren't; the gait analysed soldiers were given appropriate footwear and the ones who weren't were given a neutral training shoe.
There were no difference in injuries, or the type of injuries.
