What should I wear?
For running, ‘strength for running’ and stretching you should wear comfortable clothing that you can move in. Remember you will get warmer during runs – layers are great for making sure you don’t get too hot or cold. Although shopping for running clothing and accessories can be fun, you really don’t need anything technical to get started, other than a pair of running trainers, and perhaps a sports bra, which offers more support than a normal bra.
