Fitness is really important to me. Before having a child I used to love running. I would frequently run around the park at weekends, run home from work, and I have a few half marathons under my belt. When I was pregnant that stopped, it didn’t have to, but it did. Since having my daughter, running is not something that I’ve really picked up again. I’ve done the odd park-run, but nothing that I would consistently do on a weekly basis.
Now that I have more time on my hands, I’ve decided to be better, and get my running game back on. With the lighter mornings and evenings it’s so much easier to do now, and this is a great time to start.
Getting new running gear is a brilliant incentive to help boost your motivation, and I’ve always wanted a pair of running tights (or leggings). I’ve seen loads of trendy people wearing them, and I love that they are available in so many designs.
So when I was contacted by DW Sports to road test any of their sportswear, I jumped at the chance to own my first pair of running tights. I selected the Reebok Studio Favourite Womens Tights that cost £39.99.
When they arrived I was really excited, the design is exactly as I hoped. They are a black and white pattern, that is versatile enough to match any running trainers and top. The length is perfect for someone who has fairly long legs. And, they are super soft and comfy too!
For running they feel like they hold me in, as the waist band is pretty high, so there’s no need to worry about that “mum tum”. They are really comfortable to run in, with no itchy bits that you sometimes get with sportwear, and they can withstand any distance of running. The tights kept me cool on a fairly warm day, and I imagine that they will keep me warm in winter too.
I’m really impressed with my running tights, so much so that I’m dreaming about wearing them all day today. I’m sure that they will help to increase my motivation to go running frequently, so that I can start to feel fitter and get myself back into shape. That’s the goal!
The team over at DW Sports offer everything you could possibly need for running, or any other sport. They feature all the brands, so you can always find what you need here.
This is a collaborative post, and I was offered these running tights in exchange for a review.
