COLD WEATHER FITNESS

the gear: top | headband | tights | armband

When the weather turns cooler I always struggle to get myself out the door for a run. Especially with the sun setting so early here (4:30 whaaat?!?) all I want to do is stay home on the couch under a cozy blanket. I find that having the right gear really helps get my butt out the door. A good pair of cold weather tights and a wicking top are key. Also, I recently got that headband/ear warmer above. Changed my life! No more wind-numbed ears AND it really helps keep those earbuds in. Nothing worse than having to fumble around with headphones that don't stay in. If you are a nighttime or early morning runner safety is super important. That flashing arm band will keep you visible to cars and cyclists.

I have been blown away at the health benefits of essential oils and I am absolutely loving how they can be used to support physical activity and help soothe muscles afterwards. NingXia Nitro is something I am super excited to try--it's in my next month's Essential Rewards order! It is a blend of therapeutic-grade essential oils and other naturally powerful ingredients that increases mental fitness, cognitive alertness, and physical acuity, enhances athletic performance and endurance, and serves as a daily pick-me-up. It's basically a 100% pure and natural energy boost! Sounds ah-mazing, right?? Peppermint is another great energy booster. I rub a couple drops (diluted with coconut oil) on my wrists, chest, and back of neck before a run and it is so invigorating. Breathe Again is another fantastic pre-run oil. I put it on my chest and across my sinuses. It supports lung-function and helps to open everything up during those brisk weather runs. Panaway, Peppermint, and Deep Relief are really hard-hitters for those post-workout aches and pains. I like to dilute some Panaway with some coconut oil and massage it on to my calves after a run. Then I layer on some peppermint. Instant soothing and cooling sensation! If you have any questions about these products please don't hesitate to send an email or just leave a comment. :)
