Run Your Way with ASICS

***Competition now closed – Thank you for entering*** We’ve all been there…

You start the New Year with the best intentions… go to the gym more, eat healthier, and then January hits. It’s cold, it’s dark, and your kitchen cupboards are still full of leftover biscuits! Well, don’t worry, you still have time to get back in gear and succeed with those resolutions!

Switching up your workout routine is proven to keep you interested and motivated when exercising and ASICS have some wonderful tips to keep you on your toes and get you feeling great in 2015.

Run Long Distance

If you are used to giving it everything you’ve got and running for 20 minutes only to wind up completely exhausted, why not try slowing down a gear and run cross country? By slowing down your pace and covering a much further distance, you are actively working to tone your body, as well as creating a maintainable running regime. Boasting ASICS GEL cushioning to maximise shock absorption and provide the best support, the super comfortable ASICS GEL-Pulse 6 are ideal for long distance runs.

Off-Road Running

If you get bored easily whilst running, have a go at trail running! Put your legs to the test by running over uneven ground and strengthen muscles you may not have even known existed. ASICS Gel Trail-Tambora 4 trainers are ideal for running on different terrains as the trail specific sole improves both uphill and downhill traction and the rear-foot GEL cushioning will keep your feet comfortable and supported whilst you take in the scenery.

Gym Workouts

Finally, for those days when just running alone won’t motivate you, circuit based gym workouts are great to provide variation in your exercise regime. ASICS GEL Fit Tempo trainers are not only great for treadmill running, but also provide stability and comfort for any other gym based workouts. Perfect for jumping on the cross trainer, climbing the step-machine and even boast great support for matt based exercises like squats or lunges.

For that added-extra boast of motivation, and so you can truly put your best foot forward, we are giving two lucky readers a chance to win a pair of ASICS running shoes! For your chance to win, simply comment below telling us your favourite place to run…
