It’s very nearly spring (in the Northern Hemisphere, the equinox officially falls on 20 March), which means that the window of opportunity to get anywhere near the semblance of that summer body you envisioned for yourself at the start of the year is rapidly closing. That doesn’t mean it’s too late, though, and now that the weather isn’t all snowstorms, there’s really no excuse not to escape the sweaty confines of the gym and get out more. When it comes to pushing yourself in the great outdoors, we understand that a good bit of kit can make all the difference between getting out and staying in. So, to help make your outdoor activities that little more appealing this spring, we’ve compiled a small list of things that we hope will give you that extra push in terms of performance, motivation, and just straightforward enjoyment. Godspeed!
2XU is a technology-focused sports performance company based in Melbourne that gets a kick from the finer details of design. Take these no-show cushioned socks for instance – as well as being designed to absorb impact while running and prevent blistering, are also moisture-wicking, finished with an antibacterial anti-odour treatment to keep your feet in tip-top shape, whether you’re on the treadmill or the track. Wear them with these spring-appropriate running shorts from Under Armour, which also come with an anti-odour finish to keep everything fresh, plus built-in compression tights that boost muscle recovery.
