Brooks Running Malaysia (BRM) had the pleasure Alvine Nathan – the Founder of Nathan Project Brooks Running Club, and Kannan Murugasan of Ultraman Malaysia to lead our running clinic on 10 May 2015. The running clinic was held as a build up towards Penang Bridge Half Marathon 2015, of which BRM is the official apparel sponsor for the event.

Quite a few important tips were shared at Botanical Gardens, Penang that morning. Approximately 100 people turned up to pick up some basic knowledge on what every runner should know, starting with proper warm up and stretching.

Warm up exercises

Besides the staples of endurance training, strength training should be done as well. Push-ups is one of the simplest and effective ways to do it. Got to get the posture right to count!

Doing push ups, the right way.

Core strength is the key to good running posture. Your core, i.e. abdominal strength, adds stability to your running style. With stability, comes running efficiency.

Long runs differ from short runs, be it during training or during races. It is important to pace yourself correctly for different distances, to avoid “hitting the wall” or finishing too easy.

Other things off the training track, such as nutrition, should not be neglected. Medical check-ups should be done as a preventive measure, before running a race or training vigorously for it.

Ghost 7, a scary good shoe

Posted August 23, 2014 by brooksmalaysia
Categories: Brooks shoes, Tech talk

The Ghost series is the popular favourite among runners with neutral to high arch feet. The latest Ghost 7 is a triple threat of balance, cushion and lightweight material. Definitely a “sure win” for its loyal fans, and a “must try” for Brooks newbies!

The Ghost 7 is not as cushioned as the Glycerin 12 for a reason. Some runners may feel that too much cushion is giving them something extra to lug around on their feet. Ghost 7 gives you the advantage of balance – not too much cushion to feel bulky, and yet its Biomogo DNA is good enough to give you a comfortable ride.

Biomogo DNA is the soft, cushion element of the shoe, that works together with the structure of the sole. The shoe’s sole now uses a horseshoe-shaped crash pad, with total contact with the ground. This means a better cushioned landing, and a smooth heel to toe transition.

The Ghost 7 is scary light, weighing in at only 10.4 ounces.

There you go. Balanced, cushioned, and lightweight. What more can you ask for.

Ghost 7, with all its added benefits, maintains the same price as its previous version, retailing at RM 459.

Glycerin 12 follows the Transcend

The Glycerin 12 is the first shoe to follow the footsteps on the Transcend. It adapts some of Transcend’s key technologies, that will certainly catch the attention of cushion lovers. If you like the float experience, and you have neutral feet, then you are in for a treat!

The main enhancement is the Super DNA. The Glycerin series is well known for its comfort and cushioning, because of its BioMoGo DNA. Glycerin 12 enhances it even further, into Super DNA. It now has 20% to 25% more cushioning than before!

The second enhancement to the comfort factor is new Ideal Pressure Zones. It optimizes pressure distribution from the heel to forefoot. The Ideal Pressure Zones are now more pronounced and clearly marked out.

Ideal Pressure Zones help to distribute pressure and enhance comfort.

Two other key technologies are worth mentioning: The Rounded Heel helps your body’s alignment by promoting a more efficient foot strike. And the upper maintains the 3D Fit Print technology, giving you a wrapped fit that conforms to your foot.

Some interesting fun facts about the Glycerin 12:

In terms of cushioning and comfort, the Glycerin 12 can be ranked at number 2 – just after the Transcend. If comfort and cushioning is most important to you, and if the Transcend bursts your wallet, then the Glycerin 12 is the perfect answer.

For runners who like it light, the Glycerin 12 is made lighter than ever! It closes the gap on the Ghost in its lightness, to a difference of only 0.5 ounces. That is like, 14 grams? Just about the weight of a few pre-run cashew nuts.

The Glycerin 12 retails at the same price as its previous version, at RM 559.
