Gel Luminus Review: Pound The Road

Pound The Road

 Gel Luminus Review: Pound The Road. Hello friends, so how are you today?

At the beginning of August, I was excited to be chosen to road test some running kit. Gifted by The Running Bug, Asics and Intersports to road test some of the Asics trainers.

All exclusive to Intersports in the #PoundTheRoad campaign. So exciting, as I love a new running kit.

Gel Luminus Review: Pound The Road:

Just the push I needed to keep getting out running over the Summer holidays. So no lie in bed for me.

I was out pounding the road each morning. With all my children sleeping! I also loved getting out running first thing.

I have been very lucky to review the Asics Indicate trainersAsic Gel Glorify. Also, a few weeks ago I got sent some Gel Luminus to try out too.

How lucky.

It has been great changing shoes each day. I am only used to having one pair at a time. So it was go to shake things up a little.

Apparently you are advised to have a couple of trainers on the go at any one time.

This gives the trainer time to rest. Giving you optimum cushioning each time.

Take aim at your marathon targets in a shoe built for the longest distances. 

The lightweight GEL-LUMINUS will be there for you from the start line all the way to the post-race recovery zone.

Your foot is stabilized. From start to finish. Whether you’re going for the half-marathon or taking on the full distance.

You won’t be slowed by chafing or blisters thanks to a comfortable upper. Also, your foot stays locked in place by a clamp-like heel counter.

Get that much-needed stability in the heel and midfoot.

Feel comfortable with more room for your forefoot to move.

Land gently with GEL cushioning under your heel.

Every morning me and my puppy Mollie, have been enjoying getting out on runs.

I also run and Mollie just walks along with me!!

Now the children are all back at school I have plenty of time to get out and run.

Time to build the mileage up and not long to find out if I have got into London Marathon!!

So, if I get accepted these would be my trainers of choice for the big day. Fingers crossed..
