We could spend today sulking about running, but since I won’t know what the timeline for getting on my feet could possibly be until this week’s therapy session (we need to see if my foot responds to the therapy), there’s really no point.
We turn our minds elsewhere.
Since hopping off of the treadmill and onto the bike/yoga mat exclusively, I’ve bought a few things to (1) Make me feel cute (2) Motivate me to keep moving.
And I realized that even though I talk about fitness all the time, I NEVER show y’all what I spend my time in. Who would have thought, right?
A few notes to keep us firmly chained to reality: When I run outside, I run fully clothed (tank and tights). And wherever I run, I wear two extremely unattractive (yet functional!) industrial black sports bras to keep these puppies strapped down.
If I’m not outside and/or running, then I have the luxury of practicing yoga in my basement or riding the bike at my parents’ place. So it’s not like I have to take “my look” on public parade ever.
Self-consciousness = Not a part of my vocabulary.
All of the top-bits are from Target (I really do love C9 by Champion) and the bottom bits are from Victoria’s Secret (If you couldn’t tell from the hair/thrusting/prancing).
While I have yet to see how long the pants will last me (these are my first new yoga pants in over a year), I can truly say that I’ve logged thousands of miles in Champion tops and bottoms. It’s cute, but more importantly the quality is there.
They used to lack somewhat in the variety department but over the last year the activewear section has gone from full to bursting.
Plus, when you’re in Minnesota there’s probably a Target no farther than a stone’s throw away, which kind of idiot-proofs the emergency sourcing of More Gear. Or hoarding. I’ll let you decide what you want to forever-call it.
Where does your favorite workout gear come from?
