Whoops we got a bit behind!

Day 4:

12 Days Fitness Christmas Day 4 - Socks - Smart wool running socks

Socks. My absolute favorite socks are smart wool. They are fabulous socks that wick sweat away and help your feet stay dry. They are breathable, soft and even have a light cushion. My two favorite styles are the Ultra Light Micro and the Elite Low Cut.  The light ones are great for even wearing day to day. They come up in the back to prevent any ankle blistering as well! For days you want a little higher coverage (or if you are outside and its muddy/dirty) the low cut are perfect. They are stylish, yet great coverage for the top of your foot/ankle. Don’t skimp on your socks if you want to keep your toenails and not have to deal with blisters!

Day 5:

12 Days Fitness Christmas Day 5 - Shoes - Running shoes from Mizuno and Scott Running

Shoes. Whether you prefer running or lifting or whatever – you need shoes. Shoes are like sports bras and other items – they wear out with use! Worn out shoes can lead to a whole host of issues! So keep track of your shoe usage! If you notice any visible wear then its time to replace them! My favorite running shoes are Mizuno Wave Riders.  However I really also enjoy Scott running shoes for some running or trails or just wearing about!

Day 6:

12 Days Fitness Christmas Day 6 - Fitness Watch - GPS, heart rate monitoring, FitBit surge, Garmin Forerunner 220

Fitness Watch. This is becoming more and more popular. Runners for awhile now have been using GPS watches to track their distance/speed. They work really well. I loved my Garmin that I had and I would totally replace it with this Garmin Forerunner 220. Simple yet effective and not too big! If you aren’t a huge runner but still want something FitBit has seriously upped their game the last few years. Their newest watch the Fitbit Surge has GPS, and heartrate monitor on the watch! Plus it allows you to see your sleep patters and calls/texts so you don’t have to always pull your phone out! (I am getting one of these for Christmas so I can’t wait to figure it out!)

Day 7:

12 Days Fitness Christmas Day 7 - Running Shorts - Oiselle Roga short

Shorts – In particular Oiselle Shorts and the Roga Short. I own a lot of these. I wore these shorts EVERY day this summer when it was swealtering down here in SoCal. The Oiselle ladies are amazing (yes I’ve met them in person!) and they have quality products. They sell a regular Roga Short and a Long Roga Short. The regular ones are short. The longer ones are great if you don’t want to show as much leg or wear them out if you are self-conscious.  I really need to buy more of these. At one point they made some pants as well. They also have an ’embossed’ version which has a slight pattern to it if that is your style. If you haven’t tried any Oiselle gear before – go try it! You will not be disappointed!
