Running Gear

I’m not allowed to start running until April 28th. That will be six weeks post-surgery, and I am already counting down because sitting on my bum (at least until the 14th) is killing me. I’ve resorted to looking lustfully at new running gear even though on the 28th, I’ll be putting on my favorite pair of Saucony‘s (Grid Fusion 2 – although I will need a new pair soon and may spring for a the ProGrid Hurricane 10) and busting out the hot shorts to take off on a GENTLE run. Yes Dr. Surgeon, I will run gently at first. Promise.

Until then I lust.

*UnderArmour‘s Achieve “Mid” Short (mine are falling apart because I wear them under all my workout shorts!)

What kind of workout gear are you lusting after?

Free fitness socks from lucy!

One of my favorite stores for fitness clothes is lucy. “We all know that when you look good, you feel good. And when you feel good, you go the extra mile. So at lucy, our passion is to design fashion forward performance apparel that inspires athletic women like you.”

Not only does the fitness gear at lucy fit fantastically, support well, and cover a wide range of activities, it looks good on you, too! lucy designers don’t only work to create gear that serves a logical purpose, they design clothes with feminine details, colors and styles which make you love putting on your workout gear.

Right now, lucy is offering a free two-pack of performance socks with this printable coupon. All you have to do is carry it into the store, pick out your socks and wander to the register. I dare you not to find something else that you adore while you’re there, though.

Good luck keeping your hands off the lucy everyday pant – I have one pair that I will wear until they literally fall off my behind. My favorite pair of running shorts is the lucy front runner short. I have never had to pick my wedgie as I run in these, and I’ve been whistled at on more than one occasion. (And it has to be because of the shorts!) My next lucy purchase is going to be one of their long-sleeved zip up tops. The shirring on the ideal resort jacket draws me in each time I see it, and I think I’ve tried it on at least a half-dozen times while in the store.

One thing that lucy is well known for, that many women don’t realize, is their fantastic selection of sports bras. The Enell sports bra that lucy offers has been rated one of the best sports bras for women with large breasts by Sports Illustrated Women. With sizes ranging from 32C to 50DDD, the Enell bra is “the ultimate sports bra for well endowed women – you won’t move an inch.” Runner’s World “guarantee[s] that your breasts won’t bounce in this bra. It fits so snugly that many women assume they need a larger size. The extra-wide straps and back cover more area and offer more support.”

To find a lucy store near you, check their location finder and remember to bring your free sock coupon!!

Competition is for winners

I am only a competitive person when it comes to a few things: grades and board games (especially puzzles). When it comes to sports, I am the least competitive player ever. I wouldn’t cut it in soccer; “oh, you want the ball? Here; have it!” I don’t care much about winning … I just want to play. This is why I never joined a team sport (that and they’re stinkin’ expensive).

My favorite exercise? Running. I can do it alone. My second favorite exercise? Down-hill skiing. I can do it alone. Throwing a frisbee? Who’s going to catch it? Playing basketball? Who’s going to keep track of how many times I miss the hoop? Soccer? Running and kicking things? (Oh that would be amusing!) Swimming? That requires a tight outfit I’m not comfortable in. I’ll stick to my lone sports and enjoy talking to myself, cheering myself on, and knowing that I’m only racing against myself.
