A few weeks ago I went and talked to a group of teenage girls about running. One of the things that I went over with them was running equipment. I made sure to tell them the two most important pieces of running equipment that we NEED for running is a good pair of shoes (go to a running store to have them analyze your running and feet to find the best pair of shoes for YOU) and sports bras.
(PS this isn’t a sponsored post or something like that, I am just sharing with you my favorite sports bras that I have found)
What I care about when it comes to sports bras:
3. It doesn’t chafe me.
4. Nothing else.
I don’t really care about what they look like because I always have a tank on over them but I do care (to the extreme) whether or not they are comfortable because there isn’t much worse than a sports bra that cuts in to you funny, doesn’t fit right or leaves you a chafed mess. PS I don’t miss the days when I was pregnant and having to wear at least two sports bras at a time to run.
My top 3 in order:
1. My Moving Comfort Phoebe Bra: I have had this one for years and I have washed it probably a trillion times and it is still my most favorite and most comfortable sports bra. I really should buy 10 more because I always choose to wear this one first after I do a load of laundry because it is my favorite. I could live in it and be happy.
2. Brooks Epiphany Bra II: I like this one especially for hot runs because it seems to keep me the coolest and it is the most breathable. Like the other ones it is comfortable and I have yet to chafe from it.
3. Asics Adjust bra: It is adjustable so you can make it perfect for your body, extremely comfortable and it has molded cups in the bra.
And the best AFFORDABLE sports bra award goes to the Champions sports bras at Target. Super comfortable and a crazy good deal. And they are super cute if that is important to you.
This morning I had an easy run of 6.5 miles at a 7:48 pace.
Came home and celebrated that it was Tuesday with Brooke by making pancakes. My pancakes always turn out really yellow because I add extra eggs to the batter so that I am not hungry 3 seconds after eating them.
We are making sippy cup progress and Brooke is clapping because she really liked bfast. Apparently she needed three spoons.
After breakfast she had a bath and then I started stretching (and ended up just laying on the ground) and Brooke came over and put her head on the pillow and started drinking from my water. (Don’t mind my mascara raccoon eyes and hair horns)
Lunch was a salad with leftover chicken from last night and guacamole as the dressing. It is always a good idea to use guacamole as your salad dressing. Oh and some cranberry mini muffins.
Tell me what sports bras you run in and which ones are your favorite…least favorite?
Where do you get most of your running or workout gear?
Do you chafe? What do you do to help prevent it?
What was your lunch today? Anyone else have a salad?
