I’ve treated myself to some new running/fitness clothes over the last few weeks – I needed to replace a few well worn items and also, due to the fact that I’ve lost over 2 stone in the past 9 months or so, some stuff doesn’t fit me anymore.
My first purchases came from Lifestyle Sports where I picked up a few bits that were part of their sale:
Under Armour Water Resistant Storm Hoodie: I haven’t had a chance to test out it’s water resisting properties as of yet but am intrigued. This is very cosy if a little big in the fit, I bought a size small but think an extra small may have been a better option.
Nike Pro Compression Hyperwarm Crewneck: This is a great base layer which I will most likely wear until it falls apart as I’m an avid fan. I usually find Nike clothing pretty true to size and this top is no different, a perfect fit.
Nike Slim Fit Long Sleeve Cover Up: I LOVE this top so much – not only is it made from breathable dri-fit material but it is so comfortable and warm. In fact, my grá for it made me purchase a second one, this time in blue! Of course, I couldn’t just buy one thing especially as there is free delivery over €50 (any excuse) so I also picked up these tights which I haven’t gotten a chance to wear yet:
Adidas Response 3/4 Tights: I’m not a huge fan of Adidas gear as a rule as I find it doesn’t seem to suit my shape but a friend recommended these to me. As I said, I haven’t worn these yet but did try them on and find the size small is a little big but hopefully tied tightly, they won’t slip down builders bum style!
My sister alerted me to the fact that Lidl were doing a fitness range this week so I popped in on Monday with the hope of picking up a kettle bell but I was too late, they were gone. I did however, pick up the last 2 pairs of 3/4 tights for the bargain price for €7.99 each and have to say size wise (I got extra small), they are perfect!
