What's in your workout bag...
Living at altitude means layers are essential. Most workouts, whether playing hockey, running or biking include multiple layers. The Pulse Half Zip and Impulse Dri-Fit shirt make the perfect combination. The Impulse is a great, loose fitting base layer that wiks away sweat and keeps me cool in the summer. Easily layered under the Pulse for chilly workouts makes it a year-round go to for me. One of my favorite features of the Pulse is the stretchy material and slightly longer sleeves that allow me to tuck my hands inside for particularly cold mornings, then once I'm warmed up I can hike up the sleeves to my elbow, or shed the layer completely and tie it around my waist.
Which equipment item doesn't miss a practice..
My weapon of choice for the past year or so has been the RD8 Low Bow. As a forward, quick stick skills and powerful, accurate shooting are key. The RD8 provides me with plenty of power to get the ball past the keeper and at 550 grams the control is unbelievable. I am a firm believer in comfort and protection so the Protec Shin Guard with two pairs of Intercept sleeves (one under, one over) is a no brainer for me.
Item that doesn't leave your side off the field..
My new obsession off the field is the Envy Women's carry-all bag. Since I travel frequently for work, I figured I would mainly use it as a carry on when flying. The laptop sleeve and multiple internal pockets allow me to stay organized when I'm on the road. When I ditch the laptop to hit the gym or pack to head up to the mountains to ski the Envy seems to magically expand to fit everything I need to take with me. It's extremely versatile and I get compliments on the classic all-black outside and bright blue liner every time I open it.
