Fall is definitely in the air! The mornings are cooler…The days are getting shorter…I have seen just a few leaves that have started changing color…The pumpkin craze has fully taken over Pinterest…and the NEW styles for fitness apparel are OUT with the latest trends and colors, which is perfect as we transition into cooler running temperatures.
I was recently asked to review about New Balance’s Fall Collection. I was sent so many pieces to try out and I am always grateful for companies that do this. I was sent 7 pieces, but the ones that I am talking about today are my favorite and the ones that I will use the most frequently as they just fit me the best and fit my training style these days.
- Mesh Panel Tank: So light it feels like I am not wearing anything, which I like when I am training, especially on long runs. It is completely breathable. It is a loose fit, which is fine sometimes depending on my workout and long enough, which for tops I am liking a little more these days.
- Print Tenderly Obsessive Bra: I am picky when it comes to sports bras. I need a lot of support. I want “the ladies” to not bounce at all. The tag says high impact, but I could definitely not wear this for running. It is perfect for strength training and yoga and made “the ladies” look nice, especially with the tank over the top. There are adjustable straps, but definitely not made for women my size who are used to full suction. HA!
- NB Heat En Route Jacket: Swoon…I love the color…the feel…the style of this jacket, which is perfect for me to wear on my way to a yoga class; on a long walk with Lucy; and even wear out for a quick and casual bite to eat. It is not too snug. The curved zipper at the top gives the jacket a little more shape and makes it more fun!
- Premium Performance Short: HOT! I used to be so anti short shorts, but I am more confident in them and they just feel good. They show my strong legs and butt and yes they show my cellulite, but seriously we all have it and as long as I feel good when I am working out and these legs can get me through whatever I am training for…I JUST DO NOT CARE!
The New Balance Fall Catalog is AWESOME and there are so many great pieces, colors, and styles to choose from to help you train in whatever fitness activity you are training for this Fall. I am still figuring out what I want to tackle this fall/winter. Right now what feels right is long walks with Lucy…slowly building up my running mileage again…and at-home strength training workouts. I am still adjusting to island life. I am still definitely tired from this transition, but I am definitely learning to slow down and savor the moments; to nourish my body; to REST; so that this winter, I can be ready to commit to something a little more aggressive!
