WorkIt Wednesday : 5K Training Update... On Thursday!

Hello Neighbors,

SGMA Hall of Fame 5K

How is everyone doing this afternoon?  Sorry this didn't go up yesterday like it was supposed to.  We ran some errands it it just slipped through.  Let's get started!

Sponsors :

  • FlipBelt
  • runninGluv
  • FitSok
  • LaceLockers
  • BolderBands
  • Words to Sweat By
  • Ozeri
  • MaxFlow Sports
  • TrailHeads
  • Modest Poppy
  • Bottle Band

First up is MaxFlow Sports.  I have used their headbands a couple times, and although it is a little tight for me (I don't know, maybe I have a big head!), my sister loves it.  And these low show performance socks are GREAT!  


Second up is the Sports/Swim Skirt with Leggings from Modest Poppy.  This skirt is GREAT!  I was previously wearing a pair of denim culottes, and as you can imagine, the difference in weight was pretty big.  The first time I tried on the skirt I was amazed at how lightweight it was.  


BolderBand sent me two headbands (one for me, and one to giveaway!).  My sisters have fought over who was going to wear this headband.  It is very comfortable and is great for on cooler mornings, because you can pull it over your ears.  


Another product we have used quite a bit is the FlipBelt.  You might be conscious of it at first, but after a while you just forget about it.  The one day after running I totally forgot to take it off!  My little sister is begging to be allowed to use it at the race to keep the phone and other necessities in.  


Fitsok sent me two packs of socks (three pair each).  The F4 TECH SOCK 3PK (which are my personal favorites) and the CF2 JEWELPOP CUSH LOW 3PK (which my sisters are "sharing").  I love the cushioned tabs in the front and back of the 54 Tech Socks which help prevent blisters and chafing.  




TrailHeads sent me their TrailHeads Goodbye Girl Ponytail Running Cap - white / white trim.  This has come in handy on sunny days (to help keep the sun out of my eyes) and even on drizzly days (like this morning, to keep the rain out of my eyes).  I LOVE the wicking fabric used for these caps.  


Okay, so how many times have you been out running and you have to stop and wipe the sweat out of your eyes, or carry a tissue when your nose is running?  It has been a problem for us before.  That is, until... runninGluv!  I received a Black LUVs Pink with Pink Stitch.  And guess what, it solved the issue!


Okay, this one is more of a motivational product.  We all have those moments when we feel like we can't do it anymore, or think "Is it really worth it?".  Words to Sweat By sells all sorts of motivational products.  Do you know someone that is participating in a 5K?  Purchase a Running Necklace: Tread + Race Distance for them!


BottleBand sent me their Purple Run Like a Girl BottleBand.  Their motto?  Any Bottle. Any Time.  It is basically a band that you can use to make just about any bottle a handheld.  Just what I need for the 5K!  We tried it out this morning and it works GREAT!




The last one for this week is from a company called LaceLockers (so your laces are never loose again!).  I have the LadyBug LaceLockers and it works great.  I have had a couple times where I have had to stop and re-tie my shoes.  Not anymore!

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon

Omron Heart Rate Monitor Review and Giveaway

Hey Neighbors, Another great product for the Get Out and Get Active! An Omron Heart Rate Monitor ($59.99)! Once again due to my disc problem my daughter was the one to try this out. This is seriously not fair! Anyway, one of the great things about a heart rate monitor is that you can make sure you are exercising in your zone. You can monitor your heart rate and then adjust your pace for either a slower workout or a more intensive workout. This monitor comes witha high and low alert so you can make sure you stay right where you are supposed to. Not overdoing it, yet not taking it too easy! You can wear the wrist receiver on your wrist, or you can mount it on your bike or treadmill so it is easy for you to read. This Omron Heart Rate Monitor comes with: 1-Wrist Receiver Watch 1-Transmitter 1-Transmitter Strap (Chest size 29" to 55") 1-Receiver Mounting Bracket 1-Storage Case 2-"Lithium" Batteries (installed) 1-Instruction Manual (Above nice carry cas
