The Best Tops For Running

As you might have read in one of my posts last week, I’ve been thinking about being a bit more healthy. I thought one easy way of upping my fitness was getting back into running. One of the things that used to stop me from running was my lack of the proper gear. Like anything, running without the right kit isn’t anywhere near as enjoyable as when you have the proper equipment. The less fun something is, the more likely I am to put off doing it!

It’s because of this that I’ve decided to buy a few proper running garments and today I’m going to tell you about two of them. They are the Karrimor X lite Half Zip Running T Shirt and the Nike Tech Long Sleeve Zip Top. They are both great but I’ll talk about the Karrimor X-Lite first:

What the Karrimor X Lite Running T Shirt does perfectly is provide you with a well ventilated and lightweight garment. It has perforated panels that offer great airflow, keeping you cool and dry even when you are giving it your all. It’s got a really stylish two tone aesthetic with a light blue body and darker blue side panels and a close fit. The Tee has a half length zip which makes it very easy to get on and off and also allows for adjustment to keep you comfortable.

As you can see from this close up of the fabric, it is covered in little holes that allow for ventilation.

I also got the Nike Tech Long Sleeve Zip Top as it’s a super light and very breathable jacket, this makes it great for running. It’s got Nike’s Dri-Fit technology that wicks sweat away from your skin, this makes you feel comfortable as it keeps you nice and dry. Safety is also covered as along the arms and across the chest the Nike top has reflective strips; that help you stand out when running in poor visibility. My favourite feature of the jacket has got to be the small pocket on the rear of the jacket. It’s small but still big enough to hold your keys or a small audio device.

With these two items paired up together I’ve been having a lot more fun when running. If you’re wearing the right gear you’re going to feel a lot more comfortable when exercising and this is going to make you a lot more keen to get out and run. I think any small and easy change you can make to help improve your motivation is definitely worth while!
