Fitness Friday: Week 25 & My Fave Workout Gear!

Hi y'all and Happy Fitness Friday!

I've especially been looking forward to this weekend since it's going to be a long one and Memorial Day is one of my FAVE holidays. It always kind of marked the beginning of summer for me and was always a time when I would be together with my family and friends. I'm really looking forward to celebrating this year with S and a cookout/ housewarming party at our new place.

30/50 miles in 30 Days Count:

Total for the week: 6.75
Total for the month: 22.42 miles

 I know that I have written a few "essentials" or "favorites" posts lately and thought that I would whip up a fitness related post for today. So without further ado, here is some of my favorite workout gear!

Nike Lunarglide+ 4


I posted a while back that I looking for recommendations for a new running shoe. In the past, I've bought Brooks, but was thinking about changing it up. I wasn't originally leaning toward Nike even though these shoes had tons of good reviews. A couple weeks ago, S offered to buy me new shoes, since he knew I needed them, and being that the NEX doesn't have the biggest selection ever, I ended up going with the Nike Lunarglide+ 4.

I have only run in them a couple times so far and once was on the treadmill.I did, however, run outside yesterday in them and it felt like I was running on clouds. I can't get over how much cushion these shoes provide and I am looking forward to getting many miles out of them.

Old Navy Compression Capris

While I would love to spend more and buy lots of workout gear, that just isn't realistic right now. I found these great compression capris at Old Navy and have bought them in black and grey. I love wearing these while running because they don't ride up and are very comfortable. Note: Don't wear the grey ones if you plan on sweating a lot, you will end up looking like you wet your pants and people will look at you funny (not that that's happened to me or anything.....)

Champion Double Dry Seamless Sports Bra
Of all the sports bras I've tried, I really like this one. It is moisture-wicking and provides good support. It's a little more on the pricey side, but it's worth it to keep the girls in place.

I'm sure you've heard me mention this app before, but I do love it. I use it during every workout and it keeps track of my distance and times. I also love that lady that comes on over my headphones to tell me what my time and distance run so far is :p

I am obsessed with Spotify. Think Grooveshark, but way better quality and you can listen to songs anywhere! Last week, I posted my current workout playlist and I love playing it on shuffle from my iPhone when I run. It helps keep me on pace and makes running even more enjoyable :)

Tervis Water Bottle

My newest favorite thing is my Tervis water bottle. I carry it with me everywhere to make sure that I am staying hydrated. You can never have enough tumblers!

I've been thinking about trying compression socks, anyone have any experience with them???

Today is the last day for my Sassy Shortcake Giveaway!! It's ends at midnight tonight and the winner will be announced tomorrow morning :) Stay tuned!

I love all of your workout essentials! I almost posted something just like this today but saved it for another day! I'm like you gotta have my water with me at all times and good tunes to get through the runs. My hubby wears Lunarglides and LOVES them. He's on his second pair. I really like Nike's Zoom Elites, they're similar to yours but just a little more arch support. I'm with ya on Old Navy w/o gear, love their stuff!
