Sometimes when you want to run, whether it's jogging in the complex, on campus, or during a car free day, we always think about what shoes are cool to use. Maybe at first, when we first ran away, we thought that to run the important shoes used were those displayed on running shoes.
Even though, besides the way we choose shoes based on the shape of the foot or the material, the most important thing to remember is what kind of run we will do.
But don't choose the wrong shoes, because improper shoes will make you potentially injured. As quoted by Kompas, Dr. Andi Kurniawan, SpKO, said running exercise is beneficial for heart and blood vessel health, as well as mentally. However, according to him the injury always haunts runners around 80% if it's wrong shoes.
Running is a high impact sport that gives a high impact to the body. The impact is big on the legs and knees. "Even running shoes that aren't right can cause injury. Like a car, shoe outsole looks like a tire. The middle part of the shoe is the impact absorber and the upper part is the stability regulator, "he said.
"The right running shoes should be adjusted to the type of foot and how we run. Also pay attention to where we run, whether on a treadmill, on a mountain, or on a highway, "he added.
Actually there are approximately 15 types of running, but what is known in general and most often done is the three main types of running, namely road-running, trail-running, and cross-training.
Quoted from Rei.com, if you want to do three types of running, you should use running shoes that are suitable for each. The following are some of the differences that you need to know:
- Road-running Shoes
This is the type of shoe used for the type of run that is carried out on the road or asphalt. These shoes are designed to run on asphalt or sidewalks and occasionally deviate slightly to other surfaces. These shoes are lightweight and flexible, made with foot pads or balancers when repeating heavily, even on rough surfaces.
- Trail-running Shoes
These shoes are designed for rocky, muddy, rooted, or other off-road routes. These shoes are added with aggressive tread for solid and coated traction to produce stability, assistance and protection of the feet.
- Cross-training Shoes
For shoes this one is designed to be used for running and also for other sports, such as chewing or other cross exercises, or balance activities that require more ground contact, so that it requires harder shoe sole.
When you have chosen the right type of shoes based on the type of run you will be doing, this will not only benefit your feet or run away, but also the contents of your wallet and savings. Choosing the right shoes will make your shoes last longer, because their use is appropriate.
So, if you still like to run but don't know what kind of run and you are wrong to use running shoes, you might get wasteful because the wrong shoes can break quickly and you have to change them constantly.
Of course besides staying healthy, you want the wallet not to break down right?
