Boohoo Fit and the C25K | Training

September 26, 2016

Now I must admit, I’ve been a bit rubbish on the exercise front of late. Things have been so busy! But Boohoo have tried to tempt me back into running by sending me some wicked BoohooFIT workout gear to get me going.

I’m a huge fan of jazzy prints. My numerous gaudy prints are not particularly loved by Mr W, but for me they are like go faster stripes. PE was crap in school, ugly uniform and I hated working out. So now I’m in a place where I like to wear bright things because I can wear what I want when I exercise. So I was very happy when BoohooFIT sent me bright things to add to my kit stash!

5 Happy Things - Couch to 5k with BoohooFIT

I have been running on and off since settling after moving. But have decided that post holiday that I will be properly tackling the Couch to 5k. With a little help from some C25k podcasts and BoohooFIT I’m hoping it’ll inspire me to keep going.


Geo Print Capri Leggings – BoohooFIT

Edie Off The Shoulder Top – BoohooFIT

Sports Bra – Panache

Trainers – Asics

The print leggings are stretchy and have a high waist, which is very comfortable for working out in. I hate thin waisted leggings as they always dig in during a long run. These don’t they’re wonderfully colourful and so comfy they could be used as PJs if you wanted…


I have fallen in love with the long sleeve because it keeps my arms warm but is still breathable, so I don’t over-heat. I have terrible arthritis in my elbows so always need them covered pretty much (unless it’s like 30C and no breeze). The off the shoulder shape to the top is flattering too.


Overall I’m very impressed with the BoohooFIT range. It’s very affordable, unlike some fitness ranges and offers some great fabrics for working out in. There’s also a wide range of running suitable gear to yoga pants and other sports.

Have you got any new running gear lately? Are you a fan of bright running leggings? Let me know in the comments,

P.S. Thanks to Boohoo for my wonderful BoohooFIT goodies. As ever all words, opinions and photos are my own.

      Hahahaha it’s been such a non starter. I got ill, then we went away and now my commute is buggered for a fortnight because of engineering works so I’ll be getting home too late for a run 🙁 SIGH! Hopefully in November I can stamp out some time for it 🙂

      It’s a fairly new thing, it’s well priced too 🙂

    I have to say that I am becoming a big fan of leggings – maybe not for running though! 😉 I really like some of the fancy ones and to be honest would love some covered in psychedelic cats!

    I think the kit you have looks great on you and a definite win with the long sleeves, especially as Autumn is finally kicking in. Have fun with the C25K stuff, I have quite a few friends who have given it a go 🙂 xx

      They’ve been quite useful for yoga too, when I get the chance 🙂

    I am so obsessed with those leggings, they are bright, colourful and in a nutshell perfect. I am impressed too!
