I ended up staying home sick today. I’m feeling much better now, but earlier my cold had turned into one of those colds that make you feel like you’re drowning.
I didn’t run today, so here’s my latest on running – and now general exercise – attire.
I try to avoid sleeveless running tops if I can just because it’s that much more sun exposure. The ideal running shirt, in my opinion, goes just to the waist, so that it’s just long enough to not expose skin at rest. It’s loose-ish, not so loose that it’s flapping around, but loose enough for plenty of airflow. Tops of this description are surprisingly rare – the Nike top above checks all the boxes.
I splurged on this one as a reward for meeting some kind of athletic milestone or other. It works best when the weather is a bit cooler. I usually run in the morning, so it’s often in the low to mid 50s, and this top is a good option.
I only own the one jersey, and I like it. it’s comfy and flattering and basically a win.
Cycling shorts. Any ideas, anyone? i can’t find a pair of shorts that doesn’t start to seriously chafe after about 20 miles. Actually I don’t know if it’s the shorts or the seat or what, but something is not working for me.
Adidas Performance Women’s Grete Shorts. They don’t appear to sell them anymore, though perhaps these are similar.
I still like my Champion sports bras and my Balega socks.
These days, I’m running in Asics Kayano shoes. They’re Asics most cushiony supportive shoe, and so far, they seems to be helping my feet a little bit.
