So instead of my usual Friday Favorites post, I thought I would post something a little different instead — favorite from marathon training!
This post is NOT sponsored. Just sharing some products I love that have gotten m through training for my first marathon.
I am in the home stretch of marathon training! Since I have lasted through almost 16 weeks of training, I thought I would share some of my favorite things with you all!
Brooks Glycerin 15
These shoes have been my saving grace during all of my runs since January. They have so much support and I got them properly fitted (a half size up from what I normally wear) and my toes have been singing praises. I recommend Brooks shoes to any runner.
My knees have been a big point of caution for me during this training cycle. To be honest, I was a little skeptical about using KT Tape. I absolutely did not think it would help me — and I was so wrong!
My NordicTrack Commercial 1750 treadmill
Basically, the first three months of training were almost solely on my treadmill. I even ran a half marathon and one 14-miler on my treadmill during training.
After seeing ProCompression socks all over Instagram (#keepittight) and finding a coupon code on Facebook, I decided to buy some and see what they were all about.
So when I found a discount to get FIVE pairs for the price of two you best believe I ran to my computer to buy some.
While in the past I’ve typically stuck with strawberry-only Gu — this year I changed it up and started taking the cran-razz flavor. It’s definitely a new favorite. After my race, I am thinking about trying some new nutrition (honey stinger waffles, bonk bars, huma gel, etc)
While at first, I was only going to use this watch for day-to-day wear, it’s kind of become my go-to running watch. I reviewed it early on but I love it more every day.
What are some of your running-related favorites? Let me know in the comments below!
