Helloooo everyone! How y’all going with your new year fitness goals?
I’ve been running and er… shopping for my running.
Basically I took advantage of the crazy 50-70% off sales and bought some running gear to make my life a bit easier. I mean, if I want to run everyday or alternate day, I should have at least more than one pair of running shorts, am I right?!
So I bought some shorts, a bra top and a 3/4 sleeved running top.
When I first started this running thing, I was quite apathetic towards all the sexy and gimmicky running tops with “mesh panels” and “peek-a-boo cut-outs”.
But I’ve changed my mind! Complete 180! OMG you guys! Tops with mesh panels and proper wicking is a MUST! Tops with a sexy back is also a must! And hey, the more cut-outs the better! The more support and padding the better too!
See, I don’t actually run *just* wearing shorts + bra top.
I wear a running top over the top. Why? Because, it’s terribly difficult to spread suncream all over your back. And um, well, it’s just not so cool to “let it all hang out” in the park for everyone to see. (Says the girl who is posting photos of herself “letting it all hang out” on the internet!)
So with the extra running top, I get really hot and sweaty during my runs. Like really hot. Sometimes I wish it would rain. Or that someone would spray me with water. Or that I could just run through someone’s garden sprinklers, like the park dogs do.
I found this top on the sale rack too. I wanted a very breathable top that covers me up from the sun while running. The shoulder cut outs look a bit weird. But they seem to work at cooling me down. I just hope that I don’t end up with strange tan shapes on my back!
