|001: Shock Absorber Active Zipped Plunge, £25|
|002: Nike Zoom Structure+ Running Shoes, £84.99|
The new one is proving tough so far, but I quite like being able to feel that it must be working, if I ache a couple of days later. I'm trying to focus on my legs and stomach as those are parts which I'm not happy with, so my PT has given me a list of exercises to work through. The plan is to do this workout three times per week, and on the days I'm not doing that, I'll have either a Metafit or a spin class instead.
I've taken my measurements as I wonder if that's a better indicator of change than my weight (plus, the thought of standing on the scales makes me cry). I decided that for a new workout I need some new additions to my gym kit - these are what I have my eye on.
001: This sports bra from Shock Absorber has been on my wishlist for a rather long time, now. I really like the idea of having a zip at the front, because I do sometimes find that when I'm doing crunches on the mats on the floor, bra clasps dig in and hurt my back. I've only read good things about this brand (and a great review on Where Are My Knees? of this very bra, in fact) so I'm confident that this will be worth the money!
002: I read conflicting articles all the time, it seems, about how often you should change your trainers. I don't seem to have any problems with my current pair, although they are looking a little scuffed, but I've had them for about 18months now and I'm wondering if it might be time for a new pair. There's just so much choice out there! I'd pick a pair of these Nike Zoom Structure shoes, as I've had no problems with my previous pairs of Nikes and I think they'd be well structured which is imperative for all of the different things I do at the gym.
What are you wishing for this week?
