Any chance of some advice from the more experienced runners out there.
Have spotted a problem with my running gait. I found a little bit of of hip pain on a 9 mile run the other day, well more discomfort really. Along with the fact I supernate rediculously (If I get 200 miles out of a pair of shoes I'm going some).
Anyway I found that when I walk or run I tend to bring my leg across in front of the other. I think I can probably correct it with hard word and a lot of concentration, however I am planning my first marathon in October and wondered if it was worth messing about now, or leave it until after the marathon. Have been refered to Physio but will be about a month.
Just wondered if anyone out there had similar experience and could offer advice.
Me too!! Also just started physio and can I ask is it the Loch Ness Marathon?
No mate, Chester.
For my first marathon I looked at two within a shortish traveling distance, though we are staying over, Chester on the 9th or Nottingham the week before.
Chose Chester as the course profile is very flat and also I didn't want one with a Half incorperated. Too much temptation to turn off with the halfers. Plus the city is really nice and the date 09/10/11 is cool....
Small things eh...
Loch Ness does look nice though. Maybe next year if I manage this one.
