Running is one of the top exercises and work outs anyone could ever do. There is also no denying that it is one of the most popular and widely practiced of the work outs available today. Its popularity is based on how effective it is, and it wasn’t so effective then it surely wouldn’t be near where it is these days and that it is right at the top of work outs or pretty near it.
One could say that the popularity of running also derives from the fact it is simpler than other workouts. Simpler and yet just as effective, which is what should really count. People might be more conscious of their health and fitness and they might be more dedicated than ever, but if they could do a workout that’s as great as running then the better it is.
That simplicity was what attracted me to running in the first place. Since I was really busy during the time that I was making my choice of workout, I sought something that was not too complicated at all. And running offered me that, I though that it was a perfect fit. I could not have been more right, of course, and now I am enjoying all the benefits of making that right choice.
Being involved in running also means that you need to aware of the equipment that is used for it. The primary equipment when it comes to running is actually the running shoes that all runners use. That’s another thing that I love about running, you just lace up your shoes and you’re ready to go, simplicity at its best right there.
Using Running Shoes as Everyday Shoes
I have gone on to like running shoes so much that I have more than a couple of pairs at home. And there is also the fact that I use it more often that what is expected, and that also means that I use it as everyday shoes that I wear all the time. When I started doing it, I was not really thinking whether it is right for me to do that, it is only now that I have begun to question my own practice.
So can running shoes be used as everyday shoes properly? I thought of doing a little research apart from observing my own shoes and comparing how my other shoes fared when used as extensively. After careful consideration, I thought that I would probably refrain from using my running shoes for everyday wear. The reason was that the shoes are wearing out faster than if I simply used it for what it was designed for. Even though it provides excellent support and is also comfortable enough for me to wear it most of the time.
There is also no use in wearing out the running shoes for something that is was not specifically made for. It would be best to stick with regular casual shoes that are made for everyday wear. My decision is also based on the fact that I believe doing that is one of the keys for me to continue enjoying all the benefits that running provides.
