Decent running gear

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone have any links to some good shops that sell decent running gear? I already use the sweatshop, just wondered if there were any others?

    Do a search of the site its been covered several times
     
  3. I've never quite understood the obsession with forking out loads of cash for running kit.

    What's wrong with an old deployment t-shirt, a pair of footy shorts, Pusser's socks and Silver Shads?

    Have you no panache?

    Nick the wife's Ron hills, get a top made out of an old parachute and strut your stuff......tut.....standards. :roll:
     
  5. Northern Runner is superb if you live in the North East, best running shop in Britain.

    Try Wiggle.co.uk also.

    Although as 2DD kind of said, you don't need to buy anything other than a decent pair of trainers and a waterproof fluro jacket.
     
  6. Panache? They invented the word to describe me.

    This what I wear while out on a run:

    Your all a bunch of gayers, nowt wrong with pussers plimsolls, come with the added advantage of shin splints. That pipe is crap also, needs a tooth grip to stop it falling out whilst running down hill.
     
  9. My entry got issued these horrendous white daps because the Hi-tecs were marking the gym floor apparently. We had Hi-tecs for outside and daps for indoors. They looked like skateboarding trainers and had massive thick soles.

    Proper spacker shoes. Loads of people got shin splints because of them.
     
  10. You had it easy! Our's were made of fake or really cheap leather and had about as much flexibility in them as an iron girder. They were impossible to keep white because the whitener would just run straight off the shitty leather. Press ups a plenty for dirty daps.

    Silver Shads are for winners. The are still the only running shoes I own and I have a pair of Hi Tec squash shoes for the gym and ...er... squash.
     
  11. Worth spendin 30-50 quid on a pair of asics trainers, apart from that you just need shorts and t shirts.. or a waterproof jacket if your a [email protected]!
     
  12. I loved those Daps, I wear mine out to be hip and cool like the other guys wearing retro shoes. My PONY Daps for the win.

    As for running clothing. Just wear suitable gear for the weather conditions. But I recommend going to a specialists to see which shoes are the more suited for you. Don't just go spending money on a flash brand from a sports chain cos you'll only end up injurying yourself if they're not right for you and you've wasted money.

    I know this from experience.
     
  13. Cheers guys I am not in the navy yet, so don't have the pleasure of silver shadows but I can't wait to try them out.
     
  14. And as you're walking, jogging, running (Being marched?) around slam the left foot down to keep the pace.
    I also still find whilst doing a bit of phys the PTIs mantra running on a loop through my noggin...."Oner,two three,four ..oner, two, three, four..lef, rite, lef, rite, lef, rite, lef." Sad or what?
    Shorts ,Tshirt decent runners, job done.
     
  15. ... look up, clench your buttocks and eat the hill...
     
  16. Speedmarch mantra..........Just round the next bend fellas, dig out blind!! :roll: 8)
