It almost feels contradictory then, that I'm about to tell you the pretty sportswear bits I've been eyeing up - surely if it's not a fashion show then it doesn't matter what you wear? I agree, but I've found recently that a new, brightly coloured, garishly printed pair of shorts, brightly coloured trainers or vest can mean I feel even more motivated to throw it on and get out there. You see, fitness is for me, and if I want to do it wearing galaxy-print leggings, well then I think that's okay. I follow lots of fitness types on instagram and they do rather seem to make workouts look, well, a bit bloody cool. So now I'm working even harder so that I have the sort of body that can accomodate some teeny Nike shorts and still look bangin'. I'm sorry if that sounds superficial but it gets me out of bed and out the front door at 6.30 so it's good enough for me.
1. Nike Air Pegasus+ 30, £85 - These are pretty and practical - as well as the fact that I adore the colour and style I've also heard good things from runners about these trainers (and they've been voted Best Buy by Runners World this month).
2. Nike Run The Earth sweatshirt, £45 - I'm not sure I'd wear this for working out but if I did it looks baggy and comfy enough for daywear and runs when the temperature starts to drop.
3. Sweaty Betty 'Zero Gravity' Run Tights, £85 - I am a huge Sweaty Betty fan - their workout wear is just sublime and they have pretty and practical down to a T. I just adore the print on these, and the reflective seams and key pocket mean they'd be perfect for morning A/W runs.
