Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

Freak Tape Kinesiology Tape

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

As you know, this year I'm including more trail running and strength training into my routine (#TuesdayTidbit - Trail Running Tips for Beginners) and I'm finding that my ankles aren't as strong as I thought they were.  My trainer is really helping me with strength building, but I'm finding that I could use a little extra support (especially when I'm on the trail).

I had the opportunity to try Freak Tape Kinesiology tape.

I need to watch some more "how-to" videos on different ways to wrap, but right now this is one that works best for me. It's simple and quick. 

My thoughts? It was easy to apply, stayed on very well, and seemed to have a lot of 'stretch' to it when I applied it. I had to make sure that I didn't pull too hard and  get too much tension. So I think I will be able to use less of this tape compared to others. I usually try not to have any lotion on when I apply it, but I forgot and put lotion on earlier that morning. I didn't think the Freak Tape Kinesio tape would stick, but to my surprise it did. And it stayed on without any issues (now keep in mine that I had socks on over it). 

But overall, I feel that the Freak Tape Kinesiology tape helps provide some stability while I'm out on the trail, or when doing activities that require a little more stability. If you are in the market for some kinesio tape, or you've never tried tape before, I encourage you to check out Freak Tape
