Ready. Set. Go.

Getting out for a run or making it to the garage for a Crossfit workout are two of my favourite things to do.  Some days it takes a lot of effort to get out there, but it's always, always, always worth it, no matter how much I'm dreading it in the beginning.  Always.

I recently bought a pair Nike's Lunartempo runners and I'm over the moon happy with them.  I find the cushioning to be incredible and they are really comfortable.  Another new Nike favourite that I got for Christmas - this hoodie from their Tech Fleece line.  My husband has been a long time fan of these pieces and I finally understand why.  Not only do the pieces look great and fit well, but they are undeniably cozy.

I love a good 5km run, not too short, not too long (and just enough time to listen to your favourite tunes).  But I think I need to start incorporating longer runs here and there to mix it up a bit.  As for my Crossfit workouts, I don't do anything too extreme.  I started Crossfit last year and absolutely love it!  I noticed a huge difference in my endurance, strength and overall fitness.  My favourite Crossfit workout is probably the Helen because it includes running.  For this workout you do a 400m run, followed by 21 kettle bell swings and 12 pull ups (I do 12 ring rows instead of the pull ups, because truth be told, I can not do 12 pull ups yet! ha!).  You repeat it three times.

I've been doing this workout in the basement using the treadmill for the past bit because it's been too cold outside & in the garage.  I swapped out the ring rows for dips or shoulder presses and it's still a great workout and takes less than 20 mins!

With the warmer temps creeping back, I'm looking forward to getting back to outdoor running and garage workouts.

Have you tried these Nike runners?



Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a little note!
