Hi guys I’m Shelly Willingham from 5K Running Tips After a glorious summer, it’s time to starting to thinking about the cooler weather when you’re out running. But to ease the transition, this week, I’m going to be sharing some inspiring winter weather gear ideas that I hope you guys will love. And today I’m kicking off with how to choose running clothing. We’re going to talk about that to look out for when buying clothing and finally I’m going to talk about 2 fabrics you need to be really careful of. Lets get started. Running clothes you typically need are tops, bottoms, socks, hat, sports bra and running shoes. To be comfortable when you’re running, you need to get it right. There are a few features you need to look out for when shopping for running clothes. As a guide try to get clothes that are moisture wicking and quick drying. Wicking fabrics move moisture away from the skin. It works by absorbing and spreading moisture out across the fabric to enhance the evaporative drying rate.. That just means that they don’t hold moisture.

You will be kept dry and won’t get cold. Good examples of fabrics that are moisture wicking and quick drying: merino wool, nylon and polyester. The 2 products that you should be very careful of when buying running clothes and gear The first on is cotton and the second one is bamboo Cotton is not a good option because it holds moisture. As you sweat cotton absorbs the moisture and if the cotton is touching your skin, it’ll quickly make you cold. The other product to avoid when buying Running Gear is Bamboo Bamboo has been big in the outdoor and adventure scene. it’s often marketed as a green product with the same characteristics as wool. Be careful of bamboo though, many bamboo fabrics are just a type of rayon and share all of its pitfalls.

So there just a quick run down of the different fabrics and how to choose running clothing. I hope you’ve found this video interesting.

Can You Guess Bed Sheet Thread Count?

– I mostly sleep naked but I don’t think we can do that on camera. (upbeat funk music) – Alright, let’s get in bed. – Well these are a little rough. – And these are a little newspapery. – I’m not really satisfied with this, it’s kind of itchy. If I have a slumber party, the person I like least would probably get these sheets. (chuckles) – I’m not a fan of these. I think these are like the 150 or whatever.

– These sheets are like a cape for Halloween. – Probably like 250. – Oh 250, that’s very specific. I’d just go with 200. – 300 thread count. – 200. – Well 200 is right but oops I didn’t realize cotton felt like this. – You win. Alright what do we got here? Ooo! – This is significantly better. – I like it. – Ooo these are better. Now I understand. – These are quite nice. – I can have sex in these sheets. – Yes. (laughs) – These are more bangable. – See to me, all sheets are bangable unless it’s a plastic tarp. – I prefer sheets with dark colors. – Yes for periods. – I like touching myself. – I’m gonna get out of bed now. – These are not Netflix and Chill sheets these are like, Sunday morning breakfast in bed, I love you sheets. You know? – I think the thread count is probably, I’m gonna guess 400. – I say 500. – These are 700. Fo sho. – Oh bloody hell we know nothing. – Killin it! – I’m so close! – Well I’m just gonna fart in here. – These seem like an executive would own these. – These are like the not classy 1% though.

This is like the Donald Trump of sheets. – They’re really thick. – Yeah. This feels like an army uniform. – Yeah I’m not a big fan of this. – Also yeah the color throws me off. I wouldn’t really want to bang in these sheets. – I like this color. – So sex rating, low. – I’m gonna say 850. – I would say 400. – Shit I don’t know, 1000? I win! – 1000 thread count. – What! The higher the thread count, the better though.

Or is it sometimes it’ll suddenly drop off and be shit again? (grunts) – Ooo! – Yes! – Yeah were getting into cotton territory. 6- It reminds me of a super hero in the night. – Jesus Christ. – Ok they’re very thin but they’re very soft. – Wiggle your toes. – This just feels very elegant and flowy. – Sex rating? – This is not, this is like a 10. – I would feel bad about banging in these risking not feeling this again. – I don’t know like 3000. – You’re gonna say 3000? I wanna say 1,200. 1800 thread count. If it’s good enough to clean camera lens, it’s good enough to rub on my body.

– I thought you were gonna say butt. – Or my butt. – I think there’s a clear winner. – Yeah. – Microfiber. – Microfiber for the win. – Shockingly enough, microfiber was the upset. It’s a cheaper sheet but yet far superior. – Definitely softer. – Yes these are my favorite. – I love that microfilm. – Microfiber. – I love that microfiber. I love it. .
