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

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
