Nike - Blue Sports Bra and Leggings

Nike One Lux Women’s Mid-Rise 7/8 Tight (XS) | Nike Swoosh Sports Bra (XS) | Nike Women's Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Shield Running Shoes (Size 5) | Watch Garmin Fenix 5s Pro | Apple Airpods

Nike ⅞ Tights are a staple in my wardrobe. They fit like a full length legging on me but they don’t bunch up at the ankle like a lot of leggings do for petite gals. These are super comfortable and get me through any workout I throw at them. They fit like a second skin and move with me during my workouts so I never have to adjust them. You know how some leggings roll or start to slide down your legs as you’re running. These stay put so I can forget about them and focus on my workout. I got the blue this year because I have a light blue running rain jacket that I thought they would pair well with for rainy days. Speaking of rainy days the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus Shield shoes I am wearing here were meant for just that, rainy days. I am super pleased with them. They keep my feet warm and dry even during trail running or heavy mileage in the cold. This is the first time I have tried the Nike Swoosh Sports Bra and I like it a lot. It matches perfectly with these leggings and gives you medium support. It works well for running, yoga, or anything else you throw at it. This is pretty much the base I always start with for a workout. You could layer a crop top, tank top, or a long sleeve full or half zip if you’re outside. There’s a lot of workout gear I really like but I will say Nike still holds the lead for me. It fits well, lasts forever, and functions the way it’s supposed to. I can’t really ask for more. Also the Garmin watch and Apple Airpods have revolutionized my workouts. Does anyone remember running with the old Discman that you had to hold out in front of you to keep the CD from skipping? We’ve come a long way since those days. I remember thinking I wish there was a watch that you could put music on and headphones without cords, that you notoriously yank out accidentally, to run with. These are even better than I could have ever dreamed of. I don’t know how we ever got by before them. There are plenty of options on the market now for wearables with fitness tracking but Garmin is by far in the lead in my opinion. I have owned a few other watches that I liked for running but this one blows them all out of the water. I love the technology that you can see the screen the whole time without having to press a button or flip your wrist. Your current stats are always visible. I can see my distance and pace easily with a quick glance. No more flipping your wrist to get your screen to turn on when you’re in the middle of a sprint like a certain other watch is known for. I currently have the Fenix 5s Pro model. There is an updated version along with a variety of other watches from Garmin depending on your preferences and needs. You can easily change out the bands on Garmin watches to match your outfit or activity. I do wish they had a wider selection of bands available for all of their watches but Garmin does seem to be expanding their selection slowly. They have some very nice Italian leather bands that fit some of their watches, unfortunately not the Fenix models. Here’s to hoping they will offer that soon. I pair my watch with Apple Airpods because they fit my ear better than any other headphones. There are tons of options available at all kinds of price points. I really think this all depends on your personal ear shape. My best friend swears by the Jabra Elite 85T. They fall right out of my ears but fit him perfectly. I say try out a few different styles and see which ones are the most comfortable for you. These are products I use everyday for workouts. What have you found that works for you?
