During the Nike+ Run Club, we were given the chance to test the Nike LunarEpic Flyknit.  I ran in them for a short and fast run around Bonifacio High Street.  I even jumped into some puddles hoping that I’d get them so dirty that Nike wouldn’t want the test shoe back.  Unfortunately, it didn’t work! Hah!

Nike LunarEpic Flyknit Low

The Nike LunarEpic Flyknit was well-cushioned, responsive, light, and, I must say, very handsome! I’m flat footed so I would feel comfortable using them up for my intervals, tempo runs up to 10k, and recovery runs.  For long distance runs, I would recommend them for neutral runners. (more…)

After a run, I always look forward to a long, soothing shower. I want to immediately rid myself of the sticky, sweaty feeling and to relax my usually sore legs and feet.

After Sunday’s long run, I tried using Origins Warm Down Warming Lava Scrub on my calves and feet. The Warm Down scrub is a water-activated warming lava exfoliator which helps relieve DOMs (Delayed Onset Muscle soreness) and relax stiff, aching muscles. They say that the warm treatment helps increase blood flow and relieves tension from sore muscles.  The scrub also contains an essential oil blend of Wild Mint, Spearmint, and Vanilla which is invigorating to the skin and the volcanic ash possesses antibacterial qualities that gets rid of bacteria from sweat. It’s perfect for active individuals who want to feel renewed after a workout.
