5 Friday Favorites #3

Happy Friday! My favorites this week kinda turned into training gear i’ve been digging, hope you enjoy. I’ve been getting back to the grind of half marathon training, juggling a few new projects, pinning nutrition down and trying to get a ton of sleep. It’s been exhausting but so worth every day of it. Of course i’ll share with you along the way, bear with me as I get back into the flow of blogging!

United We Run- love this one!

Garmin Vivoactive HR I won this from Jess @PaceofMe on Instagram, and i’m in love with it. It’s the first watch i’ve owned that sits on my wrist comfortably and reads an accurate heart rate. It can log indoor runs and indoor rowing which i will use a ton! And of course if I can customize the face to be Star Wars related it wins my heart.

KFT Sports Bras I don’t use these to run in, although i have. They are my Crossfit/cross training/everyday bras. They are so comfortable and pretty i can’t handle it. Every time they release a new color i have to have it! I’m not affiliated with them, but you can check them out at KFT Brands.

-Front/back for the Lighten Up bra – and yes for the record, i hang out in sports bras and sweats a lot.

Front/back of X-factor bra, 2 different colors. The jade, is my favorite color!

 

Brooks Launch 3s These shoes were my marathon shoes, the ones that carried me to a Boston Qualifier, so maybe it’s why I hold them close to my heart. Or maybe it’s because they are light without a ton of cushion and keep my ankles in place? They’re a great shoe. I have them in two colors and they have been the ones I reach for most often when I head outside.

Reebok Nanos I’m obsessed. I have 3 pairs and have only been doing Crossfit since August. haha. A big reason I love the Nanos – I can stand up in them for hours without my feet hurting. (remember i’m on my feet all day at the gym) So i use them while training clients, then I use them to cross train in. They are a 4mm drop shoe that keeps me comfortable and stable for any type of workout.
