Morning Run Overlooking Brighton Beach

Ivy Park UK Fitness Blog
Rewind to last weekend when I was spending a couple of days in the beautiful seaside town of Brighton, and I could be found running alongside the seafront with a hazy view of Brighton Pier in the distance.  Needless to say, these photos were taken before I'd ran my way into a sweaty mess!  Knowing it was going to be an unusually sunny winter's day, I headed out early in the morning to avoid the crowds (which believe me were insane) and watched the town spring into action: beach hut stalls opening, yogi practising a Sun Salutation, builders beginning work and tourists eventually heading onto the pebble-filled beach.  Dressed in head-to-toe new activewear from JDSports, I got to see Brighton at its very best.

Old boat at Brighton Beach in WinterAs much as I love the recently added Nike Revolution 3 running shoes to my fitness wardrobe, this gorgeous pink pair of Nike Air Max Sequent 2 have totally blown me away. They're designed with both running and Athleisure in mind, and I've found them really comfortable to run in thanks to their extra cushioning.  Looking back to Dressing up Athleisure, pretty much any element of this look could be taken out of context and used for street style; leggings with an oversized t-shirt and leather jacket, tank top tucked into high-waisted jeans and paired with heels, and trainers brought into any look featuring a statement accessory or two. Anyway, on this occasion I had none of the above in mind - it was windy and deserted, and I was ready to burn off the steak baguette I'd eaten the night before!

Female UK Fitness Bloggers 2017With a track record of working out and/or running by night, I'm trying to change my ways by occasionally bringing it forwards to the morning.  And well, if you've ever seen Brighton early in the morning when barely anyone is up and about, you'd understand why this quickly became one of my all-time favourite runs!

With love,

  9. Brighton is such a gorgeous seaside town that I'm not surprised it still gets incredibly busy. The best time to go for a run is definitely first thing and what gorgeous weather for February! I love the flexibility of your outfit which can be used both for exercising and as casual street wear! Maggie xx

  14. Finally Gaby!!! You look stunning, what a happy face!!! Brighton is such a beautiful and pleasant city. We had a great time there. My God Gaby, you really jog in style... Your sport outfit is top. I particularly like those gorgeous pink pair of Nike Air and I believe you that it has totally blown you away. Have a great weekend.

  15. Wow, these trainers are perfect! I'm not too bothered with fitness clothes in general, mine are pretty basic, but I do love Nike as a brand for that. You look really 'professional' haha, and having the correct outfit can make you much more motivated to work out! Jogging around the Brighton seafront must have been great, I've always thought that if I lived there, I would totally go running by the sea :)

  18. Not being the biggest fan, I always try and get any exercise over and done with in the morning! That said, with a view of Brighton beach as you go and watching the world awaken, I think I could get quite used to running!

  25. I think I would go running more often if I had somewhere like this to do it (excuses excuses I know!) Maybe if I invest in some more nice workout clothes like this that might give me some motivation! x

  35. My oh my Gabrielle stunning photography darling! May I ask what time were the pictures taken? I love the soft morning light on your face!
    Was it easy to run on that beach with all the small stones?

    I read this post with my morning coffee, what a nice way to start my day:)

    1. Thanks so much! They were taken at around 7.30-7.45am and no, running across the stones would've been virtually impossible - there's a path directly next to the beach that wraps around the seafront :)

  46. It looks like such a beautiful day! It's fun being out and about early in the morning so you're able to see a place start to wake up. I'm totally with you on warmer weather - wearing a ton of layers that you eventually have to peel off when you're working out is...annoying! I'm glad you shared this workout look, girl!

  58. Ahh Brighton beach looks so beautiful and you're looking all the gorgeous Gabrielle! I love, love, LOVE your stunning work-out gear, it was totally made for you. Can definitely see why Brighton beach would be blissful to run across, especially before all the crowds commence! I know what you mean about layers; I often do the local park run with my dad and it was so much better in the summer! Totally looking forward to temperatures rising <3
