Nike+ Running

The new Nike+ Run Club

Nike+ Running has evolved into Nike+ Run Club. This used to be my favourite running app and it just got updated to a whole new level.

But let’s start at the beginning.

I probably mentioned at some point that I started running when I bought a Nike+ sensor and attached it to the first generation iPod Nano. Yes, those were the times. So this naturally leads you to using the whole Nike+ ecosystem and when I moved to using the iPhone+GPS+app combination instead of the sensor I just naturally went with the same app since it also had all my previous data.

Exfoliating bath gloves

3 Reasons for using exfoliating bath gloves

Exfoliating bath gloves remove dead skin cells and leave skin feeling softer and smoother. But there are other benefits that come with their use, so pay special attention to these areas:

1. Legs – A closer shave

I don’t have sensitive skin so I tend to shave my legs fairly regularly. But at least once a week or for special occasions I exfoliate them with my gloves before shaving. With the dead skin cells gone the razor can reach closer to the hairs which guarantees an extra smooth shave. Finish the process with an after shave cream or a body butter (this coconut one is my favourite) for silky smooth legs.
