How To Run On The Road | Get The Most Out Of Running Training

I'm often surprised at how many people I see running purely indoors on the treadmills and hardly ever venturing outdoors onto the roads, and you might be thinking that road-running is purely for marathon runners or maybe people that race long-distance on the road, but actually, there are benefits that we could all have by just getting outside and giving it a go.

Thanks to Club La Santa for the locations used in this shoot.

Now, you're pretty much always gonna be sharing the road with other road users, so it's really important to make sure you're seen. Even in the daylight, try to wear something that's bright that just catches the eyes of the drivers and the other road users, and if you are running at night, it's probably a good idea to invest in a little head torch or maybe something that's got a flashing light behind you or on your arm.

And that brings me on to the rules of the road. If you are somewhere where they drive on right, you probably want to run on the left-hand side and then if the worst comes to worst and you see a car coming towards you, you can just step off into the verge to move out of the way.

If you're a little bit worried about going outside on your own, then why don't you think about taking your phone with you as an emergency backup or if you don't want to carry that, just write an emergency number down and pop that in your pocket.

If one of the things that's putting you off going outside and leaving the comforts of the gym is not having loos nearby or maybe not having an energy bar in your bag, then just plan around that. If you plan a route that goes near your public bathrooms, that will solve that one, and maybe just put a bit of cash in your pocket and if you do suddenly get hungry or need a bit of sugar, run by your local convenience store.

If you are used to doing most of your running indoors on a treadmill, then the shoes you use for that will be absolutely fine for running on the road. You want something that's got a decent amount of cushioning because it is obviously hard..

One of the advantages of running on the road are the routes are endless, and if you have a car, you can just jump in it and then pull out at a spot that takes your fancy. If you're worried about what to do with your keys, then why not just tie them onto your shoe or maybe just tuck them in your sports bra.

If you're a trail runner, you've maybe been getting a little bit bored of having poor conditions underfoot or the bad weather. Then why don't you try a little bit of road running? The roads will usually be cleared by most counsels, and if you're running between buildings or hedges, you'll have a bit of added shelter. You can jump in your car or hop on public transport and you'll soon be able to find some roads suitable for your training, and the best part is that it's free!

Well, we would love to know what road running is like where you live or any tips you might have, so please let us know in the comment section below 👇

Road Vs Off-Road Running | Are You Training On The Best Terrain?

Running on the road and running off-road are very different when it comes to training. One is great for variation, injury prevention and switching off mentally, whereas the other is great for consistency and faster workouts. Which do you prefer?

Check out the GTN Shop:

There is no black and white rule when it comes to choosing off road or on road for your run training, we both mix the two. As a general rule, doing the longer less pace specific runs off road and the faster work on a harder surface such as road or track works well. And, if you are currently only running on one surface, then gradually mix it up to prevent injuries.

If you enjoyed this video, make sure to give it a thumbs up and share it with your friends. 👍

My Great North Run 2017 Experience | Half Marathon Road Running Race

So the weekend of September 9th and 10th my friend Gabe and I took a drive to Newcastle to participate in The Great North Run 2017 half marathon.

We were both running for charity, I was running for Family Fund and Gabe for Severn Hospice and we were both looking forward to the event. Even more so as Mo Farah was competing in the same race!

The Great North Run is a fantastic event, probably the worlds most loved half marathon so I was super excited to be taking part and was pushing for a PB. So i took my iPhone 7 and GoPro Hero 5 sessions to film the weekend and make this video.

I hope anyone watching this who has run the half marathon will be reminding of how great it was, but also anyone wanted to know what the event is like will get a good idea should you wish to compete.

I was happy with a new PB beating my old time by over 16mins and will definitely be returning for the 2018 event.

Asics Gel Excite 6 test & review - Best budget road running shoe

Find all reviews of the Asics Gel Excite 6 in one place with the hottest deals from +50 retailers. Check out:

The Asics Gel Excite 6 has been a favorite of mine since it first came out. It is a sleek and modern-looking running shoe that appears somewhat similar to the more expensive Asics Gel Cumulus 20. It comes in a variety of appealing colorways.

The upper of Gel Excite is made from a perforated, highly breathable synthetic material that is also stretchy. This more flexible upper material is a new feature of the Excite 6 that was not present in the previous iterations of the Excite.

It allows the shoe to “give” more around the toe box, which means that the shoe can accommodate a greater variety of foot shapes. The material is also very soft.

The midfoot is build around the classic Asics logo, which also forms a support cage. This allows for a solid lockdown for the heel and arch, which reduces unwanted foot torsion.

The midsole of the Asics Gel Excite 6 is quite substantial. It is composed of two types of cushioning. First, there is the traditional Asics Gel unit in the heel.

Second, the 6th iteration of the Excite model adds Amplifoam across the full length of the midsole. Amplifoam is a newer cushioning system from the Asics brand, which provides shock-absorption that is supposed to combine softness with firmness.

The Gel Excite 6 provides a basic lugged outsole made of hard rubber, with a pocket that displays the location of the Gel cushioning unit. There is a guidance line down the middle of the outsole, which helps point the feet forwards and maintain stability during the gait cycle.

Overall, I was very impressed with the Asics Gel Excite 6! As a long-time Asics wearer (over 20 years now!), I can say that this is probably the single best budget road running shoe from this brand that I have tried.

The Running Cam - 2017 Great Ocean Road Marathon

A record of over 7,000 participants turned out for Victoria’s iconic Great Ocean Road Running Festival across Apollo Bay and Lorne.

The two day festival of running offered people of all ages and abilities the choice of seven distances from the new Great Ocean Road Walk to the 1.5km Kids’ Gallop all the way up to the 60km Ultra Marathon.

Having completed the half marathon distance here many times before, it was time to step up and do the full marathon. It didn't all go to plan, but marathons rarely do. I hope you enjoy the highs and lows of my race!
