Today I have a guest post and kit review from Dee. Hope you enjoy!
I am not a serious runner, I really only run if I want to lose a few pounds, or to get a bit fitter if Vikki talks me into doing a 5 or 10k! Because of this, I tend not to go in much for fancy running gear, the running tops I own have been with me for about 8 years or more. Yes, I know, terrible isn't it?
Anyway, they are getting a bit tired and seem to have shrunk somewhat in length, so I mentioned to Vikki that maybe I should look in the sales for a couple of new tops at least. She suggested I look in Primark at their sportswear, she had heard good things about the running tops in particular from the ladies in the RMR Group. As luck would have it, I was off to London that day to the West End where there is a huge Primark, so decided to have a look (they don't stock this range in my local Primark, and that is quite a large store).
I went out for a run in one over the weekend to try it out. It was really comfortable to run in, didn't ride up at all and didn't rub anywhere. I would definitely have paid a lot more for these tops.
Primark also do leggings and crop tops, but I think I am a bit past wearing those, however if you wear them, it might be worth giving them a try, after all, what have you got to lose at those prices?
Have you had any running gear bargains? What brands do you think do a good job of producing workout kit at affordable prices?
