Six Minute Mile's Black Friday picks!

Remember these deals are limited to Amazon Prime members. If you're not already a Prime member, you can start a 30-day free trial and benefit from today’s deals. Here's the breakdown of our top 10 early access Prime Day deals for runners:

1. Beats Studio Buds

If you want bluetooth headphones that deliver great sound a little more wallet-friendly price point than AirPods, this is a great option. They feature noise canceling, balanced acoustics, and up to 8 hours of listening time on a single charge. They’re also water (and sweat) resistant, making them a good choice if you like listening to music on your runs.

2. Yeti Products

Yeti makes high-quality vacuum-insulated products, and this Black Friday they have a variety of cups on sale on Amazon. The larger stackable cup is a great everyday water bottle that will keep water cool, or coffee hot for hours on end. Also, the wine tumblers are on sale, so if you have a reason to add vacuum insulation to a glass of wine, this is the product for you.

3. Garmin Watches

Amazon is running nice discounts on a variety of the Garmin lines. The Garmin Enduro is the ultimate multisport performance watch, featuring advanced solar charging, VO2 max tracking, and multiple global positioning networks. The Vivoactive is a more affordable line, but still features GPS, advanced fitness tracking, and music storage. The Instinct has similar features with a rugged, durable build. The Venu is stylish and functional at mid-price range. Check them all out here:

4. Casper Sleep Element Mattress, Queen

Sleep is a critical component for a successful a training plan. Beyond improving everyday mood, good quality rest can improve speed, agility, metabolism and more while reducing the chance of injury or illness. That’s why we were so excited to see a healthy discount on this high-quality mattress on Amazon. This classic brand has been modernized to feature perforated and progressive support foam.

5. Schwinn Fitness 470 Elliptical

If you’ve read our issue entitled “Can you use an elliptical to train for a race?” you know we are big fans of using an elliptical machine to crosstrain. This pick is not only great quality, but also includes features like 25 intensity levels, Bluetooth and built-in speakers.

6. Ninja Kitchen Appliances

Sticking to a healthy diet is easier when you have the right equipment in the kitchen. One of our favorite brands, Ninja, makes amazing products that don’t break the bank. Fortunately, they're also included in the Black Friday madness and can be the perfect gift for the health nut in your life.

7. Baby Jogger City Mini GT2 All-Terrain

Remember this video of @lauramcgreen hilariously running with her baby? Well now that can be you! This running stroller has some of the best reviews on Amazon and is almost half off. If you have a little one or are expecting soon, this will help you to keep your training rolling..

8. Theragun Elite - Handheld Electric Massage Gun

We always stress the need to take your recovery as seriously as you take your training. One of the leading trends in the fitness industry over the past few years has been percussion therapy and Theragun is now established as the industry leader. If a marathon or big race is on your schedule for 2023, this is an item you will thank yourself for getting, especially at this price.


There is no better recovery fitness tracker than WHOOP. Their monitoring of sleep and activity beats just about anything else on the market. After a couple weeks WHOOP develops your own HRV score which helps you accurately determine whether you're ready for a high intensity workout or if you should really take a rest day. Till Monday you can get your free strap and 30% off annual membership. If you were on the fence now would be the time to give it a try.

10. New Balance Men's Fresh Foam 1080 V11

This was one of our favorite shoes of 2021 and frankly we’re still wearing them. Stylish, comfortable, and clearly durable, the V11’s are perfectly versatile. Training for a big race requires a go-to shoe that can handle some long distance runs and the occasional tempo dash.

Bonus Idea:

11. Bombas

Your initial impression of Bombas may have been that they are a good-guy, mission-driven company that gives a pair of socks to homeless folks every time they sell a pair to site visitors. Over the past couple of years, however, they have really upped their game with performance socks for runners. They offer lightweight, purpose-built socks for athletes with their Hex Tec technology, moisture-wicking, strategic zone cushioning, and airflow ventilation.
