Skirt Sports Go The Distance Tight

Skirt Sports Go The Distance Tight

Skirt Sports Go The Distance Tight

I am in love with these tights! The Go the Distance has been a favorite part of my winter wardrobe since its creation. The tights feature a compression panel in the waist as well as a secret pocket that fits a key, ID, or energy gel. I love the Contoured back paneling with seams that are very flattering.  I have very long legs and these do the job of keeping my whole leg warm without leaving my ankles open to the winter chill. The polyester spandex blend is moisture wicking and comes in three colors/patterns: Heather, Dream (Shown) and standard black. The heather and dream print fabrics are extra soft and cozy.

Smashfest Queen, a company started by two Ironwomen triathletes, Hilary Biscay, and Michele Landry offers triathlon, cycling, running and casual apparel. Smash designs bold and strong triathlon kits for triathletes in the making to Ironwomen and also has gear to keep you looking fast and strong during your training. I am always looking for tanks to wear when I am training and the Fast n Loud Endurance Tank is perfect with a built-in shelf bra an interior pocket for your energy gels and a slick racerback. The fabric provides UV protection and would be perfect on the run, on the ride or even in the pool. I love the signature Smashfest Queen hummingbird log design in bright rainbow colors on the front.

Aurorae Sport Yoga Towel

This Super Absorbent Multipurpose Micro-fiber Towel has been perfect for days at the pool and also for the yoga classes that I have just started taking. During yoga you can place this towel over your mat to give you an additional non-slip surface and also to provide an absorbent surface. This towel can be rolled up or folded into a compact square that is easy to take along to your next workout. Nine colors are available. This sport towel will also be perfect for days at the beach with the kids as it is less bulky than a normal towel.

HumanX by Harbinger Muscle Recovery Kit

Active Recovery is just as important as resting recovery when you are an athlete. Active recovery is often overlooked by athletes but can play a crucial role in preventing injury and allowing you to perform your best. This muscle recovery kit provides you with several different tools to help your muscles to recover and to target specific areas that are giving you trouble. The kit includes:

  • Deep Tissue Roller: High-density roller works through tight muscle and tissue and reduce intense aches and pains all over body.
  • Dual Density Foam Covers: 2 advanced-technology 5mm covers used separately and in combination on Deep Tissue Roller for cushioned surface with less intense rolling experience. Easy to add and remove. Outer cover is also integrated carry case.
  • Muscle Release Ball: 3” Muscle Release Ball offers moderate hardness when rolling on floor and when seated. The Ball is very effective in releasing muscles in shoulders, lower lumbar, glutes, hamstrings and calves.
  • Pinpoint Pressure Peanut:Ergonomic peanut shape reaches trouble spots including feet, thoracic spine, rotator cuff and Achilles tendon. Ultra hard with small surface areas, the Peanut focuses pressure in specific areas to relieve acute pain.

This kit will definitely be my friend as I launch into my next marathon training cycle. I know that the pinpoint pressure peanut will be especially helpful to targeting those terrible knots and adhesions that I seem to get.

Retail Price: $60.00

STABILicers Run

STABILicers Run

STABILicers Run

Take it from me! The STABILicers Run ice cleats are a necessity if you plan to run and train through the winter and you live in a cold and snowy climate. I have used STABILicers on some days when the ice has made running treacherous and now they are new and improved. The ice cleats in this version are replaceable and feature a Lightweight TPE Elastomer holds STABILicers Run securely in place. They also now have a Velcro© Power Strap keeps Run ice cleats securely in place for deep snow and icy roads which is great because in the past I have had some trouble with ice cleats staying on. I am looking forward to testing these out this winter as I train through the arctic blast for my next marathon.
Retail Price: $42.95
