So anyway, this naturally got me thinking about the other things I'd like to replace and / or add to in my gym kit. I swear the washing machine is on constantly of late, trying to keep up.
001: My Nike leggings have certainly been the best of all of the pairs I've had, and I currently wear them at least twice / week, so I'm getting good use from them. I'm therefore fairly tempted to replace a couple of the pairs of cheaper leggings with this one, as I know they'll be decent quality and totally suited to gym workouts and running.
002: F+F have been another place I've been really pleased with the quality of their leggings and this pair ticks all of the boxes for me - affordable, full-length, decent fabric. I don't ask for much!
003: Ah, trainers. I'm waiting to see what the dreaded analysis says, but having asked on Twitter earlier, I was recommended these Asics running shoes by several different people, so I'm quite interested in these. Plus, I've always found SportsShoes.com to be a great place for sports wear.
004: I've been "running naked" for a good while now (apparently that's the term for those who don't track their running endeavours using a smart watch. Although it's not really a huge concern for me, I'm beginning to wonder if a Garmin would be a good addition to my gym kit. I've had a play with one belonging to a pal, and he's full of good things to say about it, so maybe. The good points as I understand it about this particular model is that I can also swim with it, so that would be good as none of the Fitbit models I've tried have been able to do that.
005: Speaking of swimming, I swear I get through swimming costumes like there's no tomorrow. I guess the pool at my gym is particularly chemically, or something, as they just seem to wear out. So, this Adidas one is currently top of my list - I'm kinda fussy about swimsuits: they need to have proper straps and support - one of the only things in my wardrobe where I actually consider function over fashion!
Anything caught your eye this week...?
