I was asked if I wanted to review a new product – The Running Mat – and I jumped at the chance because innovative products like this are right up my strata.
The Running Mat is a clever piece of kit – it’s a portable outdoor exercise mat that you wear around your waist perhaps if you take part in boot camps, hike or run shorts distances and want to mix in some outside stretches and core work.
I chose to try it out on my 17-mile hike for something to sit on during my lunch break. It’s a great idea because it’s lightweight, foldable and you hardly even notice it’s there when wearing it. It also retains the heat, which is really useful as I tend to cool down very quickly once I have stopped running or hiking.
I shall certainly be using it for my running club this week!
