Happy Friday, I hope you had a great week! I don’t know about you, but re-entry after the holidays was a bit rough. However, I did my best to get back into a solid workout routine. I was able to get in several runs despite the cold temps here in Maine and they felt great!
A lot of people ask me how I stay comfortable running outside in the winter. One of the key things is layering properly with the right gear. A month ago, I received a winter running shirt and gloves from Mizuno to try out. I love both items so much! The shirt is a great base layer on very cold days, but can be worn by itself on warmer winter days. It is made with “Breath Thermo” which is an amazing form of heat-generating technology.
So how does “Breath Thermo” work & why do I love it?
-The Breath Thermo fibers are a yarn that is woven into the shirt that uses body moisture to produce heat
-These fibers are also moisture wicking, which means I stay dry!
-It is very lightweight, so it is perfect for layering without adding bulk. In fact, I really enjoy wearing the shirt alone or with a vest on colder days. I am actually looking forward to using this shirt as a base layer when I go skiing as well!
-I also love that the shirt is long. I can tuck it into my tights without worrying about it popping out or I can leave it loose to keep my backside warm.
I also love the gloves, they keep my hands toasty via Breath Thermo technology as well. They are lightweight and have a pocket on the back, which is very handy. I like to tuck a few kleenex in this space as the winter weather can cause my nose to run. They also have a touch screen finger on both hands to allow easy smartphone use.
Overall, I give the Mizuno Winter Running Gear a Five Star rating! I look forward to adding a Mizuno jacket to my wardrobe as well.
