To battle my usual couch potato habits, I’m trying to make an effort to run at least twice a week after work. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but for someone who really sucks at running (and by really sucks, I mean I get winded after like 3 blocks of light jogging), this is quite the challenge!
tank top: H&M
sport bra: c/o Brooks (exact)
Greenlight Capri: c/o Brooks (exact)
PureCadence 4 shoes: c/o Brooks (exact)
sunglasses: Moorea Seal
This goal happened to beautifully align with getting to preview the Brooks Fall line for this year (check out the full collection here). I’ve taken the PureCadence 4 shoes out for a test run and absolutely LOVE them! As someone who has an over-pronated stride, I’ve had a lot of trouble finding supportive, but lightweight, runners in the past. My past few pairs of sneakers have been chunkier heeled (which is the price you pay for extra support), which also meant they were pretty heavy to run in. These runners are really nice and lightweight, and the bright pink makes me heart super happy!
I’m also a huge fan of these capris. They’ve got a nice compression fit to them, which I’ve learned to really love after owning compression shorts for biking. For someone who is a bit more of a wimpy athlete, I have highly favoured compression apparel because it helps with the endurance and promotes better circulation. It doesn’t hurt that these pants are also fully reversible (!!) and can be worn in a solid grey, as well as this fun striped pattern. There are also two secret pockets in the waistband, one which is big enough to fit my phone in. Whoever designed these pants really deserves an extra high-5 because I absolutely adore them!
I’m going to keep pushing myself and hope to get to the 1 mile mark of continuous running before the rain starts!
P.S. I know this post probably seems like a giant ad for Brooks, but I wasn’t asked to write it. I was offered a few pieces to try from their new collection and absolutely loved them so much that I couldn’t help but write about them. No doubt, I plan to buy new pairs of capris or tights from their new line as time goes on!
