Friday Giveaway: No Sweat

by Allie on February 1, 2013 · 121 comments

in Giveaway

I swear I’ve run on the treadmill the past two weeks more than I ran on the treadmill in ALL of 2012. Is it spring yet? I’m pretty tolerant of the cold because I prefer to run outside, but snow/ice and below freezing temps is just too miz. I’ve found that my threshold is about 34*F. Any colder than that and I find myself cursing every step.

I sure miss singing while I run.

When I’m on the treadmill I sometimes forget that people are around me and start to sing out loud. Aaaaand then people look at me like I’m trying to talk to them and it gets way awkward. So I have to silently mouth the words. As if that’s not more awkward…

Running indoors means I can’t re-wear my running clothes. Err…I can’t re-wear them 3 times…only 2…?

I don’t sweat as much when I run outside AND there’s nobody around so I can stink all I want. On the treadmill, I sweat like a hog!

[Side note: It was a glorious 60+ degrees on Wednesday and I ran 11 miles outside! Not even 30 MPH winds could stop me. I sang the WHOLE damn time.]

Anyway, I’ve been using No Sweat Activewear Detergent to wash my workout clothes and seriously…SERIOUSLY…it is the best smelling detergent I have ever sniffed/used. So good I want to drink it. Not really, but you know.

It does a fabulous job getting out the stink from my clothes. It almost makes doing laundry fun. Okay, not really. Never.

I like that it’s an all-natural laundry detergent (it’s certified environmentally friendly!). So many on the market are loaded with all kinds of crazy chemicals. The natural ones typically don’t work as well getting the stink out of my clothes, but this one gets the job done.

I’ve also been using the Matt Spray to clean and freshen my yoga mat. Smells so good.

That photo showing the laundry of runners is so true. My bathroom is always lined with my running clothes!! I usually wash them off the in the shower then hang them to dry since washing them in the machine seems to wear them out too quickly.

We’re just down the beltway from you in MD and this weather is killllling our half marathon training since we run with our 5 month old son. There’s no way we’re taking him out in snow and ice and 20 degree freeze. Blech. Give me the 60′s for good!

Retweeted..:) oh and I def re-wear stuff too. Way more environmentally friendly, and I run alone most of the time.. plus you’re moving when you run, so you’d have to smell realllly bad for anyone to notice :) I guess like you said, gym runners have to be more on top of their potential stink.

Reply

54 Brittany February 2, 2013 at 12:40 am

I’d love to try the mat spray! Sadly I’ve only ever cleaned my mat once which is probably definitely not enough. I also hate washing my work out clothes and re wear them a lot! I figure the less they get washed the longer they’ll last and the less water/detergent gets used so its kind of a good thing.

Reply
