What I’m Loving Lately {Spring Fitness Edition}

Good morning, friends!

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for another edition of What I’m Loving Lately, but this one is extra special. Now that the temps are warming up around here, I’m all about transitioning my cold weather workout gear to warm weather stuff, especially after the loonngggggggg winter we had here in New England. Breaking out my t-shirts and shorts has never felt so good! That said, here are some of the spring fitness finds that I am loving lately!

Brooks Lobster Launch 2 – Have I mentioned that I just LOVE these sneakers so much? I’m seriously obsessed. The lobster pattern is simply amazing, and the soles are suppose to resemble the ocean and the laces are reminiscent of fisherman ropes. How cool is that? I’m truly obsessed. The Brooks Lobster Launch 2 is available TODAY in specialty running stores around Boston, at the company’s expo booth over marathon weekend, as well as brooksrunning.com.

Brooks Bring It Racerback – I have such a thing for stripes. (Mal actually rags on me because almost everything I own– and Quinn-owns– is striped.) So, not surprisingly, I love this tank. Obviously, I love the stripes, but I love the fit (stretchy and it moves with you) and fabric (soft and light) too. Honestly, I just love this tank so much. And, of course, it’s fun and colorful for Spring. I also love this tank from Brooks!


Adidas Performance ‘Uraha Mid’ Digital Watch – Super cute, right? I love the bright, peppy color. It just screams Spring!

Lululemon Floral Speed Short – I’m totally digging floral patterns for Spring, including these shorts from Lululemon. They actually have all sorts of fun flowery patterns on their apparel right now. I also like these funky shorts and these ones from Athleta.

Women’s Epiphany 3.5″ Stretch Short3se – More shorts! These ones have the same pattern as my Infiniti Capris that I love so much. Obviously, I need the shorts too, right?


Ideology Space-Dyed Leggings – How fun are these?! They’d be perfect for a chilly early-morning or rainy springtime workout. I also really like these leggings as well as these capris.

Kate Spade New York Glass & Silicone Water Bottle – This water bottle is too pretty to leave at home! I know I’d bring it everywhere with me and end up drinking a lot more water. I also like this glass one (the design and color are really cool) as well as this Oregon Ducks water bottle!

Reebok Women’s Crossfit Lite Lo Training Shoe – These shoes look so comfy for lifting, but also for just running errands around town. These might just be my next CrossFit purchase!

New Balance Comfy Comformer Sports Bra – I’ve mentioned this sports bra a few times now, haven’t I? I’m still in love. They’re just the best running sports bra and keep everything in place with no chaffing. I own three now.

Lululemon Seek the Heat Shorts – And more shorts! These ones look so comfy. They have a thicker waistband with drawstring, so it looks like they’ll stay put. And I especially love the airy, lightweight fabric””perfect for sweaty summer works!

New arrivals from JUNK – Oh my gosh, I love so many of the new headbands at JUNK! I totally need the one with donuts on it, right?


Sanuk Maritime Flip-Flops – It’s almost flip-flop weather. Any day now! I can’t wait to break them out.

Brooks PureProject Running Shorts – Ok, one last pair of shorts. (I just want to wear shorts already! Haha!) The pattern on these shorts is so funky and fun. They just make me happy. I also love the thick waistband, which has, not one, but three pockets for little things you might want to take on your run with you (i.e. GU, keys, ID, cash for iced coffee). Hey, when it’s warm outside, I like to run light!

Questions of the Day

What did you wear for your most recent workout?

P.S. Speaking of fitness and warm weather, Fitbloggin’ tickets are on sale for the upcoming conference in Denver this June!


  1. I have the brooks pureproject running shorts in two different patterns and love them!! I also just ordered those lobster running shoes— the moment I saw them I knew I just HAD to have them!! : ) Happy Friday!

  2. I’ve been looking at all the Lulu shorts trying to decide which ones to buy: I love them all! I’m thinking these tracker shorts are going to be my next buy. I’m loving the Kate Spade bottle and those flip flops. It’s already 90 in Phoenix. I’ve been wearing flip flops for weeks now. All are must haves I think!

  3. I am OBSESSED with those lobster shoes! They are so perfect for the marathon! And I’m with you on stripes, my hubs always makes fun of me because they are all I wear, haha. I say, if you find a style you like, stick with it 😉 And yes to Lulu’s cute floral patterns this spring! I recently purchased a jacket there and am in love with the pattern!

  4. Love everything you linked (especially the first pair of shorts!) I tried those Brooks shorts last year and they were huge and uncomfortable unfortunately 🙁 I think I’m going to have to check out the others though!

  5. I need to get some more shorts now that the weather is (hopefully) warming up. I usually just buy cheap ones at Target or Old Navy though. Love those Lobster shoes too!

    I usually wear flip flops all yer, but now that I have moved to Chicago that isn’t possible. It’s still a little dicey given that it’s a city. I wore them one day after it had rained and my feet were stained black w dirt in no time!

  6. those sneaks!! i’m doing my research on marathon training sneaks now, b/c i think i need to switch from what i’ve been wearing…and Brooks Launch 2 keeps getting recommended to me. i think i’m going to check ’em out!

  7. Those Sanuks are so cute! I can’t wait to bring mine out for spring/summer! I just saw the cutest pair of Sperry’s that have glitter polka dots on them and I want them bad. As for workout clothes, I’m really into Splits59 leggings for Pure Barre and my new Nike free kicks for circuit workouts!

  8. I looked all around town (MPS) today to find the New Balance bra to try on, but I couldn’t find a store that had it! I hate ordering online before trying it on, but I’ll have to. Does it fit pretty standard?
    I did find the orange tank on sale at REI and had to get it through! So fun.

  9. Pingback: Fun Five Friday
  10. I have the Palms Stellar Short in green from Athleta and LOVE! Cannot wait to wear them if spring ever decides to arrive in Illinois :/ ??!! I’m dying to get out of all of these layers after our 8 months of winter just like you Tina!!!
