When I'm headed out on a run, my arsenal of gear looks pretty different. I always wear good running shoes, which is so important (even though they're not as cute), and I always wear my Garmin (I've got the 305). If I'm headed out for 8 or more miles, I'll carry a running water bottle and wear my SPIbelt to hold keys, a credit card, and my ID.
And I always always have my iphone and headphones. Unless I'm going to a class, I have to have music to motivate me. I use Spotify to create playlists for different workouts. And as far as what I wear, the lululemon Run: For Your Life crops are my absolute favorite. They don't seem to have them anymore, but I'm guessing they're similar to the Run: For It crops. I like to look cute when I workout, because it makes me feel better. And after a spin class or a long run, what I'm wearing is the only thing that looks half decent, so I like to keep it that way.
And I can't believe I forgot to put it in the graphic above, but I literally NEVER workout without a sparkly BICband. I did a giveaway before Christmas, and I'm telling you they are without a doubt the best.
Super exciting news! On the last Friday of every month (starting this Friday), there are a few of us that are going to have a linkup called "Go for the Goal" where you can post your monthly goal progress, goals for the next month, and/or follow ups on your new years resolution.
It's a great way to keep yourself accountable and also to see what others' goals are and how they're progressing. It can relate to fitness, money, personal things, work, travel, or anything you're setting your eyes on for the month or year. Email me if you have questions...and get your posts ready! We're starting this Friday! You can include it in your normal Friday post or make it a separate post.
(I'll still be doing Friday's Fancies, so I'll have two posts every fourth Friday!)
What are your workout essentials? What am I missing? How are you doing with your goals? Will you link-up?
