So I'm keeping at my new year's resolution and I bought lots of gym clothing... at Primark! I was really surprised when I found out a while back that Primark now has gym wear. And now I've had the chance to try them on ready to start running again. The gym section is fairly new to the store and I thought I'd try some of the things on and wow they're really good. I bought 5 items as pictured in the photo above, excluding the trainers as I bought them in John Lewis. I got a flourescent pink sleeveless top, black sleeveless top, 2 three quarter length running leggings - grey with a thick line of pink at the top. And a grey running jumper as there's no way I'm going outside in this weather without something warm on top.
Here's an OOTD type photo, showing you the different tops! I really like them.
There are a few other things in the section that I didn't get but I'll say what they are anyway just incase anyone hasn't had a chance to look at them yet and wants to know what the whole section includes. There are 2 other types of running leggings, a full length black pair and a three quarter length black pair. But I didn't like the black so that's why I chose the pink and grey twice. They also have a running jacket but they didn't have my size and the one available swamped me so maybe in a while I'll go back and check. And the other two items are running tank tops, both in the black and pink. They also have gym bags and water bottles if I remember correctly. I didn't see anything else in the section but there may be more that I don't know about.
They are really cosy and I'm really picky when it comes to running leggings, I hate if they're really skin tight but these are personally just tight enough, not too tight or too loose so I'm very happy with my purchases. And I love the pink!! I'm not one to wear really bright colours but there's no harm in trying something new and hey at least people can see me coming! Hopefully that means no more cyclists coming up too close or dogs jumping up at me... although that always seems to happen when you're running.
