The Mind

is what prevents runners from the full use of their physical capacity. By challenging runners to perform as well as they can, in two very different mental conditions, we will demonstrate how important it is to build our mental strength as well as physical to reach our goals in fitness – and life.

THE EXPERIMENT

Athletes race on the track under normal conditions then later re-run the same track in near darkness _ no music, no scenery, and no finish line. The 150-metre-long ‘Blackout Track’ its cloaked in darkness and devoid of distractions — with the GEL-KAYANO™ 25 shoe being the only technology to assist them. They’re now free to clear their minds and focus on one thing and one thing only: flow.

GLOBAL RUNNING DAY

On June 6th, we’ll be putting the GEL-KAYANO™ 25 shoe to the ultimate test in an epic experience with athletes from around the world. To participate and have a chance at winning your own pair of GEL-KAYANO™ 25 shoes, download the Runkeeper™ app.

HOW YOU CAN FLOW FURTHER

PROTECTION PERFECTED

The GEL-KAYANO™ 25 shoe introduces enhanced lightweight cushioning of FlyteFoam™ Lyte technology and FlyteFoam™ Propel technology to let you run longer and run stronger.

TRAIN YOUR BRAIN

Your mind will often want to give up before your body is ready to call it quits. With practice, you can teach your brain to outperform your body—using visualization, controlled breathing, and laser focus. You’ll flow further and never look back..

CHALLENGE YOUR MIND

Try the experiment yourself by joining the ASICS Move Your Mind Challenge. Turn off distractions and stay off your device. Warm up your mind, warm up your body then get into your rhythm—and flow further.
