I’m pretty sure I’ve said this to you all before, but… I hate running. Haha it’s true! Every spring, as soon as the sun comes out and the temps warm up, I grab my running shoes and think “I’ll like it this year!” But alas, I always end up back on my yoga mat. Ooops!
Now, I know what you’re thinking… WHY would I do a whole post in running gear if I just admitted that I don’t like it?! I’ve got my reasons — keep reading!
1) I really do like to go for a run when it gets nice outside. Like… once. For 20 minutes. (Are you laughing at me yet?)
2) I also wanted to make sure that this fitness gear from Gap Factory could hold up in different kinds of workouts. Turns out, it passes the test! The wicking material is really nice and breathable, and the compression pants provide support and four way stretch.
3) I firmly believe that YOU should find the workout that works for YOU. Obviously, I love talking about yoga here on Lake Shore Lady, but I understand that you might not connect with it like I do. You might be one of those people who get a runner’s high! Or you might really like spinning class, or barre or circuit training. Whatever it is, I will always urge you to find a physical practice that makes you feel good, because once you do, you’re SO much more likely to stick with it.
And yes, I’ve worn this outfit to yoga and it holds up there, too. Super stretchy and breathable. AND affordable! As in… everything is under $50. HUGE win.
The only other reason why I kind of wish I liked running is because I love making playlists. Luckily, I’m in the Extensions portion of Teacher Training at CorePower Yoga right now, so I have a reason to create playlists for that – but before I perfect those, I thought I’d share some of my favorite jams that you can put on while you run, flow, pump iron, and even cool down a little! Listen here or below:
And… because I’m a yogi at heart, stay tuned for more pictures of this sports bra that I’m saving exclusively for social media! Yes, that means you should follow along on Instagram and Facebook right now 🙂
