Start with shorter intervalsEver heard of the term “proximal development”? Well, it most definitely applies to your running journey.Good things come in time! Rome wasn’t built in a day and your personal bests probably won’t be either. If you’re new to running, give yourself some time to build your endurance and strengthen new muscles. Instead of planning to run the entire distance full tilt, break up your run into intervals and keep them short in the beginning. A little walking never hurt anyone.Download our new running app and start clocking those kilometres today!2. Pace yourselfJust like the tortoise and the hare—slow and steady wins the race, my friend!Nobody likes a show off, plus your body needs time and space to get used to the new stresses of running steadily. Too many new runners make the mistake of overexerting at the start of the run, only to pay the price later on. Skip the painful injuries and instead, stick to a pace that feels manageable and steady. Patience pays, so pace yourself!Click here to take advantage of our exclusive offer on the Fittastic GPS watch. Start tracking those times!3.

With countless hours of triathlon training and marathon runs under his belt, there’s almost no sneaker that hasn’t made its way to his feet.After his many years of longing for the perfect shoe, he found himself strolling down the Squak Mountain Trail here in Seattle while staring up at the clouds. The thought then dawned on him: “if only there was a shoe as comfy as a cloud with support as sturdy as the West Seattle bridge.” That one thought alone is why Cloudscape exists today.Cloudscape seamlessly blends a comfy cool lifestyle look with the kind of support you thought only your best friend could give. Using the technology of DUROMAX combined with synthetic leather and mesh panelling—each unique Cloudscape design offers a sturdy foundation with a light as air feel.As our pal John likes to say: “Your feet will thank you.” Resources to get you racing to your next personal best:Click HERE to receive our monthly newsletter!
