Running, also known as jogging or footing, is becoming increasingly popular. The English word translates as " the race ". Running is the practice of running on the road, as opposed to trail running, which takes place on trails. And the word "running" has recently entered the dictionary (yes, yes!).
But to take that long-awaited breath of fresh air, you need the right equipment, and by equipment I mean, of course, the right running shoes. Take a look at our article on Torrent Hoka one one shoesspecially designed for running.
At Alpinstore, you'll find women's and men's running shoes from a wide range of brands.
To start choosing the right running shoe, you need to know what kind of running you want to do. Are you more of a runner? A marathon?
For a short race, you'll need lightweight, dynamic shoes that don't have very thick cushioning. For a marathon, which requires more frequent training, choose a shoe that's just as light and dynamic, but above all with optimum cushioning. This cushioning will give you stability during your run and help to look after your joints. You'll find thick soles adapted to these long runs, notably with the cushioning of Hoka One One shoes.
Next, you'll need to choose your size. Running sneakers sometimes come in intermediate sizes (36 2/3. 37 1/3, ...). Remember that when you put on your shoes, you need to roll your foot out as far as possible in the shoe, and check that your foot is not too tight, and that the shoe is not too big, as it needs to provide good support. And don't forget to bring your socks for the fitting!
Of course, at Alpinstore, we'll help you find the right running shoe for you, and we have size guides available.
How do I start running?
Anyone can start running! But it's all a question of progressiveness. There's no best practice, but you need to start with a split, one part running, one part walking. First of all, your muscles and joints need to adapt to this rhythm of sport. But you also need to take into account your cardio, which needs to adapt to your running rhythm. The more time passes, the more you'll see your performance improve!
So if you want to enjoy yourself, relieve stress and improve your well-being, grab your running shoes and get out there!
