An Online Coupon Code For Choosing a Running Shoe

0

There is no single best shoe out there. Every runner has different needs. Things that you need to take into account include your own biomechanics, your weight and even the durability that you need. Of course, you also need to take into account the shape of your feet.

And like your feet, everyone’s wallet is different. One thing all wallets have in common? They really like coupon codes. Who doesn’t like to save money? We wanted to offer you some online coupon codes for a site like Running Room to save on your running shoe. Instead of offering you a promo code that’ll expire in a few days, we’ll link out to Coupon Coder, which updates its coupons regularly so you can come back to this post in a year and still be able to access working promo codes. We also have promo codes for shoe discounts in the U.K.

Stability
If you are a runner and you want to run on a moderate surface then stability will be very important to you. Those who opt for stability shoes tend to have feet that have normal arches. On top of this, it is a good idea for you to have a shoe that combines good support with some midsole cushioning. When you do this, you will find that you have a great level of support when it comes to the arch of your foot and it can also really help you to get the best result out of your run.

Performance
Performance for your running shoe all depends on what you are looking for. If you want something that is efficient for training then you will want to look at the support that it can offer you. This includes what it can offer you for cushioning as well. At the end of the day, if you are looking for something that you can race in then you’ll find that performance shoes can offer you varying levels of support so you won’t have any issues there.

Neutral
Neutral shoes are really recommended for those who want maximum sole cushioning. Of course, this is ideal if you need some medical support and it is also great if your feet do not have normal arches.

Minimalist
These shoes are great for those who want to have the biggest level of response from their shoes. They are also great if you want to have a small element of cushioning as well. The first step in making sure that you have the right shoe is to try out a wet test.

This includes you putting your wet footprint on a dry floor or even a piece of paper. This will help you to understand the shape of your own foot and it is a great way for you to make sure that you are doing everything you can to find the right shoe as well so do keep that in mind when the time does come for you to get started.

Running Gear: eBay Discount Codes for Shoes, Leg Warmers, and Barefoot Running Stickers

eBay discount code for running shoes

Today we have 3 things for you in elite running gear. First up we have shoe discounts in the U.K. with an eBay discount code, then we have two quirky items that you may not have considered for your running arsenal: leg warmers and barefoot running stickers.

Discount Codes for eBay in the U.K.

This one is mainly for our friends across the pond. I was surprised to find that eBay UK seem to have the best prices for purchasing high quality running shoes. You can get all the best brands and models including your favourites like Nike, Saucony, New Balance, and more. In addition to already lower than average pricing you can use ‘voucher codes’ (that’s what they call coupons over there) to get an extra discount. Some are exclusively for shoe sellers, and some are good for the entire eBay website.

If you’re in the US and feeling a bit left out, I would encourage you to check out the American eBay website the next time you are looking to purchase new shoes. The prices are great, and while I don’t currently have a promo code for that site you never know when one will pop up. As an elite runner you know that having good quality shoes is of the utmost importance, not just for performance but in terms of injury prevention as well. It’s a worthwhile investment, but that doesn’t mean you can’t seek out the best price possible.

Leg Warmers for Runners

You might think of leg warmers as something that only ballet dancers and aerobics instructors in the 80s wore, but they are actually pretty fantastic for runners as well. Ours are a little different though, we’re not wearing the big knitted and slouchy pink ones. If you live somewhere cold and like to run in the morning or evening leg warmers can be a big help. Aside from just being comfortable, they can keep your achilles tendon warm which can go a long way towards injury prevention. If it’s a particularly windy day the chill from the wind can cause vasoconstriction as well which will decrease the efficiency of your muscles.

There are some really fantastic models on the market now, they are designed to keep you warm without rolling down or compromising your performance. They are aerodynamic and designed to support the knee joint while keeping you warm & cozy as well. Prices range, but generally you will be looking at around $50 for a high quality pair. Oh, that’s another thing to watch out for! Sometimes they aren’t sold in pairs but in singles. I know, it makes absolutely no sense but there it is. Just something to keep an eye out for when you’re shopping online. If you’re going to be running in icy conditions whether that is on the trail or the road you may want to look into shoe spikes as well to stay safe.

Barefoot Stickers for Running

If you think the idea of running in leg warmers is wild, you’re not going to believe this! A few years ago a company called Nakefit (which I think is a brilliant name, by the way) launched a kickstarter campaign to mass produce ‘stickers’ for the bottoms of your feet that could be run in on a variety of surfaces and were water proof. They set a goal of 20,000 Euros and beat that by a huge margin. I guess the market for barefoot runners is bigger than I had thought?

For some people wearing shoes is a sensory issue, they just hate the feeling of it. I don’t mind normal running shoes, but the other ‘barefoot’ option where the shoe had individual toe spaces makes me shudder just to think about it. I don’t like the feeling of things between my toes. Aside from running, these could just be nice to wear on hot sand or slippery surfaces like a pool or boat deck, where you don’t necessarily want to wear a shoe but fully barefoot might not be comfortable or safe. Obviously if you live somewhere very cold these aren’t a great option and you’re just going to have to wear shoes, but if you are lucky enough to live somewhere that beach running is an option at least some of the year you may want to take a look.

Happy Shopping, don’t forget your discount code!

So there you go, from the practical and necessary to the wild and pure luxury that’s our gear round up for this month. Check to make sure if you are buying a pair or single, and don’t forget to use your discount codes.

Running for Beginners

0

If you want to keep fit but you don’t know how then we can help you with that. Here is a post on how you could run your way to the perfect body!

Kit Basics
If you are a beginner then you will want to do everything you can to get the right clothing. You will want to have loose clothing and you will also want to make sure that it is very comfortable. Getting a good pair of trainers is also a must-have.

At the end of the day, when you do go shopping for some trainers you need to remember that the trainers will need to absorb up to three times of your body weight every time you hit the floor. Of course, the greater shock that your shoes absorb, the less pressure will be placed on your joints so that is something that you need to think about.

It is also a good idea for you to replace your shoes after around 12 months. This can depend on the number of miles that you do every week. If you are running every week then it is a good idea for you to wear some high visibility clothing as this will help you to stay seen in very low-lit areas.

And the last thing that many runner consider completely essential to their training is a good pair of earbuds or headphones so that they can listen to music while on a run. You want to make sure you get ones that are a ‘sport’ model so that they won’t constantly fall off while you are running, and it’s a good idea to get ones that use bone conduction to transmit the sounds. Do not use noise-cancellation while running! You need to be able to hear what is going on around you for safety.

Technique
If you do not have an efficient running style then you will tire much more quickly. A bad technique can leave you feeling injured and in pain. You will want to look around 10 metres ahead of you with your eyes looking slightly down. It is also a good idea for you to keep your shoulders squared as well. They should roll inward with every stride that you take.

On a treadmill, however, you will be stationary as the belt moves. When you do run, you will push up with every stride that you take. Outside, however, the ground is stationary so you will have to adjust the way that you run. If you want to avoid this problem then you will need to run at a gradient of 1 percent when on the treadmill.

Conclusion
So as you can see, having the right gear is very important and you would be surprised at how easy it is for you to try and get the best result out of your technique. Of course, if you can it is a good idea for you to try and run with someone else because this way you can share your experience with someone. You can also talk with them about their own fitness goals as well so that is something else that you need to think about when the time does come for you to start running for yourself.
