We all know that what we put IN our body has a huge impact on the health of our skin, but how often do we stop to think about the things we are putting ON our body? If you’re anything like me, not often enough. I don’t wear a lot of makeup, mainly because it’s just not practical with the amount of exercise I do. But I thought the products I was using were good quality – I was certainly paying enough for them….
I love training outdoors for a thousand reasons, but there’s no denying a couple of minor annoyances. One is the weather (if anyone has Mother Nature’s contact details please let me know) and the other is the havoc it can wreak on my skin if I’m not careful. I’m guessing that many of you have had similar issues, so I spoke to Lisa Hody, Manager of Thaspa (my absolute fave spa in the Sydney CBD) to get her top five tips for ensuring our skin stays healthy when we’re training outdoors. If you’re in the area you should book yourself in for a treatment – you’ll walk out feeling a million bucks, I guarantee it….
So, I don’t want to alarm anyone, but I found another spin class I enjoy… like, really enjoy.
Last weekend a couple of my friends and I made the trek (and I call it a trek because I know I paid at least five tolls) to Bella Vista for a class at Pelotone – Sydney’s Premier Indoor Cycle Studio. And it was totally worth it.
I don’t want to jinx this run of great weather, but it really does feel like spring is in the air. And while most normal people will be looking forward to digging out their cute skirts and summer maxi dresses, it’s my running shorts and racer-back singlet tops that I can’t wait to get into.
Sometimes the right sportswear can make all the difference to your training. There’s nothing worse than sports bras that chafe, tights that wear holes in unfortunate places or shoes that give you blisters – and we all know that in the depths of winter, any excuse is a good one to stay in bed. Lucky for you I’ve got a little sportwear obsession – I’m the kind of girl that goes out to buy a dress and comes home with a new pair of tights and three singlets instead. In fact, I’ve probably owned more pieces of sportswear than you’ve had hot dinners and today that comes in handy because I’m going to share my winter favourites with you. You’re welcome.
