If you follow me on instagram, you may already know that one of the resolutions I’ve made for 2019 is to spend more time outdoors and get back to running and hiking! Both hiking and running were my go-tos for years, but lately, I’ve comfortably settled into doing yoga and pilates at home. I blame it on my schedule, I can do yoga any time, anywhere, which is really convenient when I’m traveling, and at the end of the day, nothing relaxes you and quiets a busy mind quite like yoga! And yet…, I miss being outside, I miss the way morning sun feels on my skin after a good hike, I miss the fresh air and the beautiful canyon views and I miss the social aspect of it! Yoga at home is something that I do by myself but I always ran and hiked with my friends.
So, in a spirit of getting started on those 2019 resolutions, I’ve took up running again. Right now, I ran for about 30-40 minutes and do some light yoga and stretching on the go. Circulation tends to be a rather big problem for me, and stretching is something that helps tremendously! What about you guys, what are some of your favorite fitness routines?
P.S. I don’t know about you guys, but something about new fitness gear gets me really pumped and excited about working out! With so many awesome lines to choose from, I thought I’d take this opportunity to name a few:
ALO YOGA – comfortable, durable and just plain gorgeous! Honestly, this is one of my favorites at the moment! Oh, and the fact that I can wear a lot of it outside the gym so to speak, is definitely an added bonus!
ASOS – another go-to place to shop for activewear. The brand and style selection is absolutely amazing!
NIKE – the obsession started with their running shoes and cropped hoodies, but now I live for Nike sports bras. The comfort and support level is amazing!
