I’m always curious to see what other people like to work out with.. don’t you?
So here’s my favorite things to get moving and stay healthy
I don’t know what I would do without my Garmin Forerunner 305. I use it running (obviously) and on my bike rides, and every other workout too! It’s the bomb. You can sign up with Garmin Connect and see all your workouts, elevation gain, speeds, heart rates.. and so much more. For an example : HERE is a bike ride I did awhile ago, with all the info, pretty cool hu?
Brooks adrenaline sneakers. I’ve learned this season that I need better support in my running sneakers… and these offer just that!
Prescription sunglasses.. I’ve been living in the dark since these things. I hate wearing contacts when I run or ride, so these things are like a God’s gift really. Rudy Project makes great stuff, nice and light, fits perfect and now they’re my everyday sunglasses too!
Ohh the foam roller. It’s a love-hate relationship. I never knew what it felt like until this past season when I went to Pysical Therapy for knee pain, turns out I had a tight hip flexor and really tight IT band. In came the foam roller to ease the pain and get me back on the bike.. Gosh I love that thing.
For cycling I got a new helmet, shoes and cleats this season and they were totally worth it! My Giro helmet is amazing- the vents are huge and fits awesome- no hot spots. The speedplay pedals are great, enough float and easy enough to clip in and out. And the shoes fit great.. stylish too I was hesitant about buying them all online- but it’s so much easier and a little cheaper.
As for clothing..
I’m a big fan of these Lululemon shorts; why?- because they don’t ride up! They’re worth the extra $$ They’re really breathable, and not wicked short either. You get what you pay for!
Tops are these guys from Target- just basic T’s. They fit the bill- not too tight- long enough so it doesn’t ride up when you’re running all over the place and the sleeves are just the right length. Great for layering too. Oh and they’re cheap enough to get in a bunch of colors too!
what’s your favorite workout stuff? there’s so much more out there!
