How often do you need to get a gait analysis done when buying new runners? Started running one year ago and bought my first “real” pair of runners last spring. I have a ‘neutral’ foot or gait. Do I need to get it done now again when buying new ones or should I just go with the neutral runner gain? Does it change much over time with all that mileage?
Your running style will evolve (for better or worse) as you evolve as a runner. If you have had an adequate gait analysis initially, you should probably have a new one done every 6-12 months, depending on your training (style and mileage) and what your ultimate goals may be, especially if you are working at improving your running gait (which we hope you are!).
