I remember back to the days when my gym kit was all black for fear of showing any sweat. I didn’t want to draw any unnecessary attention to myself in a class or on a machine, so I tried to remain anonymous. These days, when it comes to kit, I tend to have the opinion of the brighter the better. Anything with a pretty detail, an eye catching pattern, or dash of colour is a winner.
These Adidas Ultimate Fit Pant Allover Print Tights are one of my fave’s at the moment, I particularly love the hints of mint green poking through. They’re the perfect summer/autumn transition legging, providing full coverage but in a light summery pattern, to see us through what I hope will be a warm September.
I teamed these gorgeous leggings with a black HeatGear ArmourVent top from Under Armour. I love that the top looks plain from the front, but has a cut out and panel of mesh at the back. Perfect for hot and sticky summer runs or sweaty workout classes. I wish I’d worn a brightly coloured bra underneath for contrast, but alas I have a very poor selection of colourful running bras! Apparently these have sold out but I’ve found two similar Under Armour tops- the Back in Action Tank and the Essential Banded Tank.
My shoes for the run were of course my Adidas Boost – the springiest, bounciest running shoes I own. Perfect long distance shoes and the ideal trainer to hit the streets on London in!
