The day we wait the entire week for totally snuck up on me!
This week I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite running/workout things with you.
Normally, number one in my heart would be all of my Lululemon outfits, but I realize no one is interested in seeing my closet! :) So let's go with....
Runkeeper. I've tracked nearly 5 years worth of miles on this ap. I love how it tells me when I've exceeded a goal or broke a record for a certain distance, pace, etc. It helps me keep track of those 1,540 miles I'm trying to run this year.
The perfect hydration for the hot summer runs.
Nuun is packed with electrolytes, light flavor, no sugar or carbs, and portable, Nuun Active Hydration is the perfect sports drink. The electrolytes found in Nuun will help alleviate cramps, help muscle function, communicate and burn energy efficienty (nuun.com).
I trained for the Nike Women's Marathon last year using only Nuun and water as hydration. No gatorade or power aide. I felt SO much better. Most sports drinks are filled with sugar, but Nuun is not. I also like the bit of carbonation that it offers.
My new shoes! Finally...back in the Newtons. They seriously make me faster. I'm not sure if it is the light weight or the addition of the lugs, but my pace is back in the 9's (where it should be!). I took a brief uncoupling with them last year and replaced them with Adidas Boost (which I also really liked), but still feel "faster" in the Newtons. I love 'em!
My trusty sidekick - my fuel belt.
This baby has seen me through every marathon and half marathons that I've done (you can definitely tell my how this looks). While it may look super nerdy (like a fanny pack), it has enough room for a 20 oz water bottle, several gel packets or applesauces, snacks in the zippered part, lip balm, a latch for my car key and a spot for my phone/music. So I'm a little high maintenance, but I certainly have everything I need (a girl needs her snacks!)! I am thinking about getting a vest to use on occasion (some of the higher profile marathons won't allow hydration vest/backpacks). It would definitely be helpful for trail runs, when your out in the middle of nowhere with aid stations several miles apart, but it would mean ending pink's streak.
What is YOUR Friday favorite?
