I’ve been reveling in the no-training-plan-attached mode for the past few months, and having little desire to register for anything that would change it.
Sweat once a day – doing whatever you want.
My weekly runs have adjusted to re-include a little bit of lululemon love. There are two stores in the District with weekly run clubs – I like the option of heading to one or the other, and running a route that doesn’t revolve our neighborhood. This also means I’m in a store at least once per week. Eye candy, galore…
I’ve been helping out the Georgetown crew a little bit as they transition to a Thursday night routine; new day/time means a need for new routes (weekend vs. week-day). I worked some MapMyRun magic, and in turn, they asked me to run in and review the latest in their Running collection.
Who turns that down? Not this gal. I love their running tights.
These were different than the other two in my collection because they’re a little more on the “light-weight” side – i.e. no tech-fleece lining – and the waist-band is deep. The front pockets will easily hold some extra fuel, a debit/credit card and/or an iPod. There’s also the back zipper-pocket, which I always make use of (metro card + ID). They’re also navy + white – something to run in other than black!
And they have stripes. And they’re Penn State colors. I mean, seriously? I want to live in these.
If you don’t own a pair of quality running tights, you should have at least one (unless you live in a climate that never dips below 60*. In which case, you’re smart.). And if you’re up for the investment, lululemon’s Run products are completely worth it.
In other news, Chobani has new flavors! If you don’t know this by now, you must not spend a lot of time on social media. If you do, and you’ve tried them, you’ll know why I’m posting about this along with others. They’re following suit – nothing but good.
Chobani rarely disappoints in the taste and texture departments. To add to that, their team is always friendly, responsive, clever and coming up with new ways to add “CHO” as a prefix. The latter is reason enough to love them.
The latest additions to their yogurt family: Passion Fruit, Apple Cinnamon & Blood Orange.
The passion fruit was probably a one-time only rendezvous. I wasn’t a big fan of the seeds or the orange coloring.
However, the apple cinnamon & blood orange were huge hits in this little apartment. I was a little curious as to how an “orange” yogurt would taste, but they got it right. I’d say both could use a little bit less flavoring, but delicious nonetheless.
Your turn –
What’s the best addition you’ve made to your workout wardrobe lately?
Are you a Chobani lover, too? Favorite flavor?
