We all have things we can’t live without. That favorite pair of worn out shoes, or that workout t-shirt you swear by. I’ve got a little honeypot to share, the gear I get geeked about: Geared for the Run.
Disclaimer: These gems are properly tested pieces of gear that keep me up to speed. I’ll keep a spot for my faves and we’ll see what stays on top of my list.
Three things to wet your whistle:
iPod Shuffle 1G: Fits anywhere. Plays anything – well up to 100ish songs. Customize your playlist before a big race and it will get you through. Most importantly it’s durable. The bummer is finding the perfect headphones that are comfortable for hard workouts.
Nike Dry-FIT Tech Capri: Short enough for summer, long enough for winter. Dual climate compatible. Multi-sport loving solid pair of fancy pants. Perfect for indoor bike workouts and stairs. Don’t want anything sticking or showing that shouldn’t. They can make anyone’s butt look good. And they don’t bell out at the bottom. They are breathable and have a back zip-pocket. I have snagged my pair (somehow) but sewed them right back into shape.
Brooks Ravenna: Shoes are the key to your running soul. I’ve yet to race in these, but training has felt good. Less padding so you feel more in-line with your form when you run. Shoelaces are supah long, but you can replace those.
I made a big girl running purchase this week, can’t wait to give y’all the scoop.
On my agenda after work: trying something new! The fabulous ladies over at Exhale Spa
hunted invited me to come check out a class. I’m honestly a little nervous, but certainly excited! I’ve heard great things.
Explore the Core: Core Fusion® Cardio is a calorie burning, sweat inducing, body sculpting, power-packed fitness experience, masterminded by the co-creators of Core Fusion®, Elisabeth Halfpapp and Fred DeVito. Merging cardio with intense strength and flexibility moves, this 60-minute class generates maximum calorie burn, resulting in defined abs, sculpted legs, and high, rounded glutes.
Due to maintaining my running Smart Coach plan, I had to do my weekly Rocky Repeat this morning. Something tells me I will be sore for my planned run tomorrow.
If you could only have one accessory to take with you on a run/walk what would it be – MP3 Player, sports-watch or sunglasses?
