5 RUNNING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS YOU MIGHT NOT BE TAKING (BUT SHOULD BE) July 6, 2017 08:00

Safety Tips for Runners/Walkers

 When you go for a walk or a jog, do you take these safety precautions? 

1. Wear an ID

It's very important to have some form of identification, such as an emergency wristband. That way if anything were to happen, your essential information would be readily available.

2. Tell Someone Where You're Going

Be sure to tell a trusted family member or friend the route you will be walking/jogging and your expected return time. If you have a GPS watch with live tracking, don't make that info public, but send it to a close friend or family member.

3. Wear Reflective Gear in Low-Light Conditions

Make it very easy for others (especially drivers) to see you, even if it's during the day.

4. Fuel During Runs Longer than 45 Minutes

On longer runs, don't allow your body to deplete. Fuel with energy gels or other electrolyte replenishers.

5. Plan for Water Stops

Make a route that passes water fountains, or carry water with you to prevent dehydration.

 

Where to Get Equipped?

Look no further than your local running store!

HOW 2XU COMPRESSION CAN MAKE YOUR MUSCLES HAPPY December 15, 2015 11:29

 

Recover Faster, Feel Stronger, and Improve Performance with 2XU Compression

What can 2XU (pronounced two-times-you) Compression do for you During Exercise?

    • Reduces Muscle Fatigue and Damage - Contains the muscle to reduce vibration, minimize damage and overall fatigue to enhance output.
    • Heightens Agility - Applied pressure to the skin surface increases sensory awareness for improved posture, agility, mobility, and stability.
    • Improves Performance -Heightened circulation, muscle oxygenation and less fatigue increases power and lowers heart rate for enhanced performance overall.
What can 2XU Compression do for you After Exercise?
    • Faster Recovery - Graduated pressure increases blood flow and shortens the recovery phase especially while sedentary.
    • Decreases Soreness - Efficient removal of blood lactate from exercising muscles to reduce swelling, speed muscle repair and reduce soreness.
    • Travel Protection from Edema and Blood Clots - Through heightened blood circulation, 2XU Compression helps reduce swelling in feet and ankles and lowers the risk of blood clots, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT).

Can 2XU Compression help Before Exercise?

    • Improves Circulation for Faster Warm-Up - Graduated compression increases blood circulation to the heart and lymph nodes for a faster, safer warm-up period before exercise.

The MCS line from 2XU takes compression to a new level. MCS stands for Muscle Containment Stamping. MCS is a revolutionary fabric support system traced over key muscle, tendon and fascia groups to focus greater compression power to wrap precise areas and reduce muscle oscillation and damage.

From Founder + CEO Sally Bergesen

After two kids and six years of “just running,” I was ready to train and race again. But what I thought would be a quick trip to the running store to buy new shorts ended in disappointment. Too poofy, too baggy, too high-waisted, and all wrong in the color department.

Over time – and many a long run – that disappointment became an idea. Not only about new women’s running apparel, but also about a new kind of company. So in the end, the question became not so much why a new running apparel company, but why not?
