Five on Friday: Running and Fitness Edition

Hello, hello, my friends!

It’s Friday!

I’m tired this week! I’m tired OF this week and I want it to be over already. Things are not so bad, no. I’m just tired.

But anyway, guys, it’s Five on Friday time – talking about 5 things I’m loving/hating lately – this time it’s Running and Fitness Edition. Here we go!

{ONE} Lifestyle Accountability Show.

If you follow me on Facebook and Twitter, you probably saw this news already. If not – I’m super excited to share the link to my interview with Adam and Devon Bate for this show.

I met Adam at FitBloggin’ in Savannah this year – he’s a super nice guy and it was great to put a face to a name and chat with Adam in real life.

Anyway, click here to hear what your blogger sounds like 🙂


Thank you, Adam and Devon, for having me on your awesome show!

{TWO} Women’s Tek Gear Active Clothing + Soybu

Love the Tek Gear brand! Relatively inexpensive and SO comfortable!

Got me this outfit before going to FitBloggin’ 14 and I’ve been enjoying working out in it ever since (erm…yeah, I washed it quite a few times).

Tek Gear Performance Capris - $20.99 at Kohl's

Tek Gear® Striped Racerback Yoga Tank - $17.99 at Kohl's

Top that with the Soybu headband that Kia gave us at her yoga class at Fitbloggin’ and I got me a perfect outfit!

{THREE} Garmin Forerunner 210

Yeah, I know…I’m just trying to get back into running and I already want an expensive dedicated running device. Well, that’s just the way I am – gadget-head 🙂

Doesn’t mean I’m gonna go buy this $200 watch, but we’re talking things I’m liking, tight? So I like me this watch 🙂

{FOUR} Compression Socks

Yey or Ney?

I need to do some research on that one – as to whether there are actual benefits of wearing them while running or not – there seems to be a lot of different opinions out there. At this point I just love that there are so many fun designs out there! Check it out:

I’d run in those! I’d even walk around in those 🙂

{FIVE} Google “Running”

Google “Running”. It’s amazing what you find!

Here’s a cool visual on how NOT to run:

Cool T’s like this one that I need desperately:

You’ll find inspirational quotes:

And inspirational people:

Yeah...I don't know what she's doing :)

Yeah…I don’t know what she’s doing 🙂

That’s one of my favorite things this week – google “running”. Then get inspired and go run.

Have a great weekend, guys!

And move – all the time.

  3. I wore compression in my last tri (Escape from Alcatraz) as I was having some calf issues (leaking/burst baker’s cyst in my knee) so they helped me on the hilly bike/run course. Kind of held me together so to speak. I also wear them following a long race (half IM or full IM)-speeded up recovery.

  4. I hate compression socks. I tried them once, and all I could think about was taking them off. They were hot and I felt like my legs had been taken prisoner.

    I don’t get compression socks at all!
