If you’re looking to treat your sister, mum, wife, girlfriend, running buddy or yourself to some great running gear this Christmas, here are my suggestions for perfect gifts to start her year out strong.
A Winter Workout Wardrobe:
Admit it, leggings are for everyday. To the gym, at the gym, and from the gym. On the trail or off the trail. Even on the couch. The perfect match of fashion and function! Why not treat her to some new workout wear with our 15% off Ronhill clothing deal when buying any 2 or more items?!
Hi-Vis Essentials | If she prefers to run outdoors, the Ronhill Vizion Radiance Jacket and Vizion Radiance Tight are the brightest option for road safety. The jacket features reflective dot graphic and tape, plus two 10-lumen LEDs. It has a DWR treatment for water resistance with great breathability.
Pair the Radiance Jacket with the Radiance Tights for 360 degrees of visibility. The tights feature the same reflective dot graphic. The deep band sits comfortably at the waist and the Powerlite fabric ensures maximum coverage with great support!
Winter Woollies | Staying comfortable in winter means staying warm. The Ronhill Trail Merino base layer has merino wool to pull moisture away from the skin and keep her dry and warm when it’s cold outside. It’s lightweight and very soft, and the added thumb loops help keep her hands toasty.
Couple this top with the Aspiration Victory Tight to stay cosy. A performance tight with modern relaxed styling, the victory tight has a soft, brushed feel and a deep waistband.
A Wrist-Based Running Partner:
If she’s training for the next 10K or a big marathon in 2017, having a watch with running-specific features will keep her on track! These 3 watches are a great addition to any runner’s training programme:
Garmin Forerunner 235 | As you may know, I’m a big fan of my Forerunner 235 (read this blog) . With advanced fitness metrics such as advised recovery time, estimated VO2 max, and race predictor, I can tailor my own training programme to my fitness goals. Wrist-based heart rate allows greater flexibility in wearing the watch to work or to workout. This watch is for the more competitive runner.
Price: Normally £279, the best-selling Forerunner 235 is NOW ONLY £229 as part of our Christmas offers!
TomTom Runner 2 Cardio | If she does a little bit of everything beyond running, the TomTom Runner 2 Cardio tracks all her activities with multi-sport options.
Whether it’s running outdoors or on the treadmill, cycling or spin class, swimming in the pool, or gym classes, this watch will capture it all.
The watch also features GPS and wrist-based heart rate.
Price: Normally £149, the Runner 2 Cardio is NOW ONLY £99 as part of our Christmas offers!
Gizmos & Gadgets Under £25:
