The Active Zinc Print Moulded Crop Top Sports Bra is a very comfortable fit, with the crop top style I am finding it doesn’t ride up when moving around. I am able to comfortably star jump, run down the stairs and almost keep up with my workout DVD’s (It’s not a miracle fix sadly). It does however pull everything firmly into place and keep it there. With adjustable straps and three hook and eyes to fasten this really is a lovely fit. The microfibre fabric helps to keep you cool while working out too as it allows your skin to breathe. RRP £40
The Performance Wear Zinc Print Sports Pants are a cropped sports trouser made from a very lightweight and stretchy microfibre fabric. These are very comfortable and move with you no matter how you move, they don’t ride up or fall down and they have a very comfortable elasticated waistband. They also don’t restrict movement. Working out even gently is a hot and sweaty business – these have ventilated women-specific sweat zones (yes that means crotch area obviously), the microfibre fabric helps to pull away moisture and the flat seams stop friction. They also feature a small zip pocket in the back to hold your key while out running or a locker key while in the gym. RRP £42
Reebok Neon ZQuick Dash Trainers. I have never owned a pair of running trainers and I wasn’t sure I needed them to be completely honest with you, I mean trainers are trainers, they all do the same thing – right? Well no, not at all.
It was only when I began wearing these that I actually noticed the difference. These hug your feet perfectly. They are cushioned to protect your feet on impact with the pavement and the front features a NanoWeb material which allows airflow through the material – this means your feet don’t sweat and over heat while wearing these and it helps to cool them down during your fun.
Having now worn running trainers I swear by them and they are the first thing I recommend to anyone who says they want to take up jogging – hey I am no expert at all but the fact this novice hasn’t had sore feet or blisters must count for something. RRP £65 – currently on offer for £32.50
Water bottle – a must to carry with me when out for a jog and I will certainly need during the race.
I leave you with the mess which is me after a short jog – it’s not pretty!
