2. Yesterday was probably the hottest day of the year so far. It isn’t hot by many standards -which I am thankful for when I am out there running. It was about 28C. Surprisingly the heat makes people bail on their runs just as much as the cold- our group last night was considerably smaller than our usual clinic night. I know it’s hot, but we were only running 3ishK!!
The 3.38K felt like 15K. We were mostly in the sun, so when we finally turned onto a shady street we all sighed with relief! Glad my next run will be in the morning!
3. If I ever say that I want to buy some loose fitting running shorts again, slap me!! I tried on a number of shorts (thanks for all the suggestions!) and decided on a pair of Turbo Run Shorts from Lululemon. They looked good, felt good and when I tested them on the treadmill before fully committing to them they didn’t ride up! I Well wouldn’t you know, as soon as I ripped the tag off and stepped outside to run in them they started to ride up! Do I really run that differently on a treadmill versus outside? I was so mad! I will wear them for short runs, but they will drive me NUTS on a longer run. I did put Body Glide on so I wouldn’t chafe but it’s the nasty feeling of fabric riding up that gets me.

So I have decided that I dislike summer running not because of the heat but because of shorts (which I guess is because of the heat)! I hate shorts!! HATE HATE HATE them!! I don’t even really like regular shorts- they are not flattering on me and I spend more time adjusting them than just enjoying life.
I am so mad that I returned the running skirt that I bought- it probably would have been way more comfy than these shorts!!!
That is my rant for the day.
