Day 20; 5 Must-Haves

List your 5 must-have fitness items. Oh, Geez!! Just 5??

While Running;

Running Tights; Need to keep my booty & legs tight & snug.

I LOVE my "wireless" earphone, music gets me moving. Some days, I go without music.
I use my Music on my iPhone, someday too. I like to mix it up.

Garmin Watch/Road ID 
(Sometimes I leave without Garmin and use Running Apps (even as back-up)

Supportive Sports Bra
I love Target's Champion Brand, similar to this one.

Can't have too many pairs!
Right now I'm rotating between these 2 pairs. 
I'm currently debating between 4 brands for my next pair(s); Agh!

Here's a few other items to have; not a "must" but I do typically have them during Runs, here's why.
SpiBelt, carries my phone, cash/card, ID for off base running.

For the Warmer days, when I head off base 
For LONG Runs/Races

5 Must-Haves for Workouts; 
Fitness Calendar!!
Where would I be without one? I love to plan ahead.
Sometimes, I change it up from what's on the calendar.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Workout the gives!! 
So much you can do, helps balance, flexibility, truly an over all body-workout!! 

Kettle Bells
Versatile item (tool), another ALL-BODY Workout. 
I always recommend these to friends, always!!
Foam Roller
This thing has been a valuable addition to my workout gear.
Helps stretch out the muscles, especially after long runs or a week of running.
Helps prevent common injuries.

Heart Rate Monitor
Not only does it keep track of your workout, it gives your calories burned, 
AWESOME item when your on a weight loss journey.

I could go on & on but there's my list of Must-Haves!!!
