The desire to run is a primal impulse that we all experience as children and one which follows many of us into adulthood. Running is one of the simplest way to exercise, with multiple health benefits and an easy way to get into the great outdoors. You do not need a fancy track or a treadmill, or lots of expensive gear; just a good pair of running shoes and some general sports wear will suffice when you begin.
As you progress in the sport, you will no doubt become interested in the added benefits of specialist running clothes and equipment. Eureka cover a multitude of styles and brands, incorporating the latest sports technology.
Footwear is of up most importance because it absorbs the shock of hitting the ground and is responsible for supporting the foot which, in turn, governs the posture of the rest of the body. If you compete in triathlon cycling shoes can double as running shoes and so become even more important, affecting comfort and performance in both disciplines.
Proper running clothes will affect your temperature regulation, through insulation, water resistance, wind blocking, quick drying qualities and the wicking of moisture away from the skin. It is also important that they are light weight, provide total freedom of movement and are soft, so that they do not chafe. The support that is afforded by compression wear will also help your muscles to function more effectively, improving performance.
