Get fit, get running!

Running has to be one of the cheapest and most effective ways to get fit. Don’t bother with splashing out on fancy gym membership you are never going to use, instead buy yourself the basics for running then you have access to easy, free, effective exercise whenever you want!


Getting kitted out to run…

Trainers – Invest in a good pair of trainers specific to the type of running you do (road or rough terrain) and they will support and help you get the most out of your run. Being a big fan of customisation my fave sports store is Nike because of their Nike ID function where you can customise Nike products to your heart’s content! These Nike Air Swift just £30.79 with 7% cashback

Leg wear – There’s nothing worse than starting a run, just to realise 5 mins in that the elastic in your tracksuit bottoms is naff, so to stop them falling down you have to tie them up and do the rest of your run looking like ‘Compo’ from Last Of The Summer Wine! These Ronhill Ladies Tights are ideal, stirrup feet stop them riding up, and 4 way stretch means they are super comfy to run in. £13.50 from Wiggle with up to 5% cashback

Base Layer – To help keep you cool as you run, or retain the heat during the colder months base layers are ideal. They can be pretty pricey so I had a quick look on eBay and found loads. This Helly Hansen base layer was just £20 and you get up to 30% cashback from eBay

Accessories – If you can’t find anyone to be your running buddy then an iPod is the next best thing to keep you interested and motivated while you run, but don’t pick anything too up beat for your play list or you’ll burn yourself out running extra fast! This electric blue 2GB iPod shuffle holds 500 songs and is just £45 with 2.5% cashback

So now you are ready to hit the road, on your marks, get set….GO!
