Sports and Running Clothing

When it comes to running, getting the right clothing is more important than you may think. From top to toe – everything from trainers to tops, what you wear when jogging can make a huge difference to how well (or how badly) you perform.

There is a huge range of running kit available, and these days runners really are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing sportswear and clothing. If you’re just starting out and are unsure of what clothing you really need to start running, Leggit’s top tips will be just what you need to keep in mind when buying running clothing.

“For me, running isn’t about the gizmo’s or gadgets, its just about getting out there and pounding the pavement. All you need is a good pair of trainers. I tend to over-pronate when I run (where your feet roll inwards too much as they hit the floor). The trainers I use are made by Mizuno and I love them; they provide support through an innovative ‘wave plate’ that runs through the sole, they’re the only supportive trainers which don’t cause me to over pronate more”

“My must-have running item would have to be my polar heart rate monitor. Its good for training and for pacing yourself, I find it can be hard to know how much effort to put in – especially over longer distances, this has helped me run further distances as you don’t use up all your energy straight away.”
