Tips for cross country runners gear
Cross country running is quite tough and it require lots and lots of specific training and intense conditioning. A typical cross country run is usually between 2.5 to 7.5 miles long. This distance can be through trails, woods, gravel or roads. Having the right running gear is quite important on these runs. Here are a few tips on cross country running gear.
Cross country running involves a certain amount of specialized gear. All you need a pair of good running spikes, singles or running shorts and t-shirt and a wrist band. Your spikes or running shoes are the most important part of your running gear and care should be taking when buying them. These shoes should have great traction and comfort options as you will be running through different surfaces.
The Adidas XCS 3 Spike cross country spikes are one of the most efficient running spikes around. These running shoes are lightweight and very comfortable. They feature a Sprint Web seamless upper design that uses a laminate composite. This will help you keep your foot locked to the ground giving you the best possible traction. The full length EVA midsole offers you the best possible cushioning so that you remain comfortable throughout your run. The 6 spikes are removable and attach on to a full length spike plate. Lastly this shoe weighs just about 6 oz making it perfect for long distance running.
Once you have a good pair of shoes and running wear you could get yourself additional gear like power bands. The Rawlings power band features performance technology that uses holograms with frequencies that react in a particular way with your body. These frequencies react with your body in a positive way which results in improved energy flow throughout your body. This power band is made from 100% surgical grade silicon. It features two Power Balance holograms.
