One of the things I love most about blogging is sharing things I love & use all the time. Gear, products, resources, etc. Here are some favorites that I keep going back to time & time again.
I used to be a tried-and-true Asics girl, but now I’m all about some Mizunos. I wear the Mizuno Inspire 6’s right now. (And sshhhh don’t tell my secret, but I always buy two pairs of the previous years model at the end of the year online wear I can find them dirt cheap. Usually Road Runner Sports, but sometimes Running Warehouse.)
My foam roller and I got super tight when I injured my IT band, but slowly my love for the stick took over. I still have both, but grab the stick a lot more. (Plus I have a smaller version that makes for easy traveling.) Read my comparison of the foam roller vs the stick here.
Switching to clipless bike pedals was one of the best things I did to improve my riding experience. I love Pearl Izumi’s tri-specific shoes, the Tri Fly IIIs, because, well, they’re great for tri’s. (The one strap closure and pull on heel tap help make for speedy transitions.) I also really like the same company’s Elite II road shoe, but I didn’t buy those myself and would never fork over the money for them on my own. (But they are fantastic.)
On Home Workouts
I’ll be honest, I prefer working out at the gym or outside, but since having a baby, I’d have to readjust a little. Lately I’ve been a fan of the PiYo series – it’s gentle-ish but effective and provides enough variety with all the different workouts that I don’t get bored.
On Baby Things
Oh so many things I could tell you about. Actually, I have, over on tinysneakers. Check ’em out here: Baby Essentials
