Five Friday Favorites

Friday Five, Gear

#1: DonaJo Fitness Leggings: Recently I was contacted by the company for a sponsored post about their brand/apparel. When I reciecved the email about the opportunity I basically jumped with joy as I had admired their leggings on other instagramers and checked them out at Expos! These leggings are mid-high waisted, SO DANG SOFT (like PJs), breathable, and amazing for running, lifting, running errands etc. Their patterns are all fun, bright, and eye-catching! If you want a pair you can use the Code: “RUNNINGWITHSTRENGTH” for 20% off your purchase. 


#2:Zoot 4″ Tri Shorts: So my first triathlon is Sunday, so I needed to invest in some new triathlon shorts (mine are all from about 5-6 years ago). I ordered these because I like training in the shorter version for tan lines since the sun is way hot in Arizona. I LOVED them the second I put them on. They are mid-high rise with a flattering waistband with a drawstring for a secure fit. The elastic was not too tight around the thighs to create an unflattering bulge and when I tried them out in the pool they didn’t fall down or move and felt super comfortable on the bike and they are adorable! I AM IN TRIATHLON APPAREL HEAVEN! ❤ ❤ ❤


#3: AquaSphere Goggles: So far so good with these. I still had goggle lines but no severe headache during the end and after my swim. I have only worn them once so we will see. This is my third pair of goggles since starting this tri thing – hoping third time’s the charm!


#4: Lululemon Baller Hat: I bought this hat last week and while I am not one to spend $40 on a hat – It fit perfectly on my head and every ironman guide always mentions wearing a hat for the run and it matched my tri outfit so I said why not! I got the Cranberry/Maroon one!


#5: Training Peaks App: I am LOVING this app lately. It definitely highlights the Type A part of me 100%. I love how I can have everything in one place – training, nutrition, metrics. For training they have all different activities you can input as well as stats (HR, Pace, etc) from your workout. Also is has a place for metrics where you can add in your hours/quality of sleep as well as your weight. My favorite feature is that is links with MyFitnessPal. I LOVE THIS because I can get the whole picture – nutrition, training, weight, and sleep all in one place to adequately assess the whole picture. The basic app is free – so I would suggest checking it out!


With Love and Friday Favorites,
