In today’s world, we can’t spend a single minute without our smartphone. We feel lost and restless if we have to spend a day without our phone. Such is our attachment to our phone, we carry it even when we are going out for a run. We should be very careful while taking our phone as we may get distracted while running resulting in the damage of our phone. Lets check out the places where you should never put your phone while running.
1. In your Hand:
Keeping your phone in your hand during a run is a distraction. You may stop for a selfie while running and this will break your momentum. If you stumble or fall you may even damage your phone. Carrying a phone in your hand while running a few miles may also lead to severe cramps in your hand.
2. In your Pocket:
Running shorts or track pant pockets are not designed to hold your phones. They are small and your phone will not fit perfectly inside them. As you soon as you start running, your phone may fall resulting in a damage. Also it begins to flop against your body which will make you very uncomfortable during your run.
3. In your sports bra:
Keeping your phone inside your bra may prevent it from falling into the ground and getting damaged but its not the right place to keep your phone tucked inside. Breasts gets sweaty pretty fast and it will make your phone wet resulting in damage.
4. In your waistband lining:
Your phone wont stay long if you tuck it in the waistband of your old running shorts. Your phone will eventually slip into your underwear or fall into the ground.
5. On your Arm:
Armbands are not the right option as your phone older for various reasons. Armbands bounce and require constant adjustment. Many runners are switching to other alternatives because of poor design and fit. Every time you change your phone, you need to get a new holder and may not even find one that fits the latest model.
6. In your compression Socks:
You may put your phone inside your compression socks or shoe, but it will cause more problems while you run, there is a risk that your phone may fly out and smash into the pavement and break every time you take a step.
