Stretching

For a good stretching routine please ask your jog leaders.

Clothing

Comfort is the key for running clothing. The one essential thing for all runners is a good pair of running shoes. If you are new to the sport and are confused by array of shoes out there then go to a specialist running shop for advice, the shops listed above in the Discounts section all offer great advice and will help you work out what works best for you.

The other essential item is for the ladies. A sports bra is essential when running. There's only one excuse for not wearing a sports bra when you run, and that's being male. Otherwise, no matter what size you are, you need to arm yourself against the irreversible effects of gravity as you run. Why? Because once the ligaments around the breasts stretch, there's nothing you can do to shorten them again. Normal bras reduce breast movement by around 35 per cent, but a good sports bra achieves closer to 60 per cent. A- and B-cup sizes normally suit crop-top styles; larger sizes require moulded cups; and either way you should look for a bra which has been designed for high-impact activities. Running shops will stock sports bras but also check out Less Bounce and Booby Doo.
