I slept until 9am this morning…can’t remember the last time that happened! I am not sure why I was so sleepy. I went to Equinox Run Club last night where we did some intervals. My legs felt surprisingly fresh and I actually ran a 7:xx mile…can’t remember the last time that happened either!
It was a good, short run followed by delicious poolside eats. If you haven’t tried the Pangoa bowl from Freshii yet, I highly recommend it! It’s so tasty and fairly easy to make yourself at home too. The base is brown rice and then they top it with black beans, avocado, corn, tomatoes, white cheddar, cilantro, lime, and BBQ sauce. Yum.
Anyway, let’s talk about some fun Olympic clothing today!
With Rio being just around the corner, Canada-themed everything is literally popping around everywhere around here. I love the excitement around the Olympics and am counting down the days until the games begin. I’m a fan of any and all of the running events (duh), gymnastics and diving. To help me show my support, Sport Chek hooked me up with some amazing gear. They are carrying the adidas Canadian Olympic Team High Performance Collection both in stores and online right now with lots of styles to choose from (for both men and women).
From the Sport Check website:
“The adidas Canadian Olympic Team High Performance Collection has been designed to equip athletes at all levels with Olympic-quality apparel. The fabrication enhances muscle efficiency, and Clima technology manages moisture and keeps the body cool or warm during all types of training sessions.
The collection includes compression and workout gear, layers for outdoor training, performance t-shirts for running and training, and accessories.
The apparel features both adidas and Canadian Olympic Team logos along with Canadian design elements, featuring the iconic maple leaf.”
Here are the items that I received:
adidas Team Canada High Performance Collection Women’s Daybreaker Full Zip Hoodie – I knew I would love this because I’ve already got a Daybreaker from adidas that I wear all the time. It’s really cozy and I love the Canada writing across the back. I sized up in this for a more comfortable fit (wearing a small for reference). I wouldn’t necessarily wear this to run in (bouncing hoods drive me nuts) but it makes for a fabulous throw on pre- or post-workout.
adidas Team Canada High Performance Collection Women’s Grete Mesh Shorts – I appreciate the (slightly) longer length of these shorts. The thicker waistband makes them sit really comfortably and they are super lightweight, which is perfect for this heatwave we are currently experiencing! The little Canada Olympic Team logo is a nice detail too! I’m wearing an xs for reference.
adidas Team Canada High Performance Collection Women’s Graphic V-Neck Tee (no longer online) – This is the softest tee I (now) own. It has a relaxed fit, flattering neckline and a sweet front graphic. There are a few different t-shirt variations in store that I recently saw, but it looks they they are sold out online. Note that the tees run a bit big. I usually like to get a size small but the one I’m wearing above is an xs.
What is your favourite Olympic event to watch??
