It’s that time again, when things get a little ‘milder’ and you have to make the transition from long to short sleeves and legs (or not, if you’ve toughed it out all winter or like to stay wrapped up all year round!). After numerous sweaty runs and the subsequent washes, you might want to refresh your running wardrobe, so get down to your nearest Aldi and snaffle yourself some Specialbuys gear.
I’ve been trying out a few items from the range (and I’m still happily wearing the gear I tried out last year – it really does wash well). A favourite – again – is the ‘Ultra Bright Running T-Shirt’, it really is super-glowy and you will easily be spotted on those warmer evening runs, the fit is good and I would say is quite generous, so maybe try things on if you can. I also had a look at the ‘Short Sleeved Compression T-shirt), which comes in grey, so far less obvious, and quite flattering with its subtle pattern. I’m not entirely sure how much compressing it did because it isn’t especially tight, but the ‘Mid-Compression Running Socks’ seemed really effective for keeping post-run legs in check. The range covers everything you need, starting with insoles at £1.99, T-shirts from £5.99-£11.99, this light-weight jacket at £15.99:
and I also had a look at the ‘Wireless Activity Tracker’ which is £39.99 and monitors activity, sleep, distance, calories and allows you to set daily goals. It’s worth keeping an eye on the Aldi website because they bring out sports Specialbuys every few months, often alternating running with cycling.
