Usually I do a round-up of running gear and accessories for each season, but I feel like spring is all over the place. I have been using stuff from winter, summer, and fall! I’ll plan to do a summer post, but for now I wanted to share some other fitness stuff that I have come across lately.
I have been receiving a complimentary StrideBox each month, which I really enjoy! This month had the following items:
Picky Bars Energy Bar (Chai and Catch Me)
Glukos Energy Gummies (Orange)
Vega Sports Recovery Accelerator
Heka Energy Drink
EO Deodorant Wipe
So far I have used the hot/cold pack (as an ice pack), and I’ve tried the Picky Bar and Granola. All get two thumbs up! I’ll be sharing some of the other products with Rob, who is marathon training, since I’m not running right now. Whenever I get any kind of wipes I nonchalantly leave them with his running gear…

Run & 10 DVD
As I said yesterday, I also bought the Runner’s World Run & 10 DVD. (I think they changed the name to 10-Minute Cross Training for Runners? It looks like the same one I have with a different cover…) I love that this has quick 10 minute workouts that cover all the stuff I include in my routine already. It’s nice when you want to do a core workout to not have to think about what to do!
Kinetic Revolution’s 30 Day Challenge
I also subscribed to Kinetic Revolution’s 30 Day Challenge. I’ve followed James Dunne for a while, and recently listened to Tina’s interview with him on her new podcast, Running For Real. I decided to try this challenge to help keep me focused on my return to running.
I also got these new crops (Pace Rival Crop 22″) from Lululemon using a gift card I had from Christmas. Lately I have been wearing capris for all of my workouts, so I felt like I could use another pair. I think these will be perfect for running, yoga, and biking.
This one isn’t directly fitness related, but it does help me to have happy feet which is really important! So I tried Birkenstocks a few weeks ago, and then I also tried a pair of these White Mountain Crawford sandals. I find them to be just as comfortable as Birkenstocks, but significantly less expensive. I also think they are just a little dressier so I may be able to wear them to work once in a while (depending on the day).
I also got a new yoga mat that folds up! When I bring my stuff for yoga to work, I don’t really want to walk around with a rolled up yoga mat, so this one can go into my bag. I needed a new one anyway so it was a good investment.
