running blog



I’m enjoying reading my way slowly through all the blogs from fellow Janathon participants.

As well as much discussion about squirrels, getting our laundry done (or not), in time for the next run there has been some discussion on ”women’s structural running under garments”.  From Travelling Hopefully ‘s concern that testing them out may cause earthquakes to Fitartist ‘s avoidance of one garment which might allow her to rest her chin and take a nap on tiring runs!  Personally I’m finding the yoga moves required to get into mine challenging and I’m thinking of taking a survey of how many minutes are lost wrestling into these items each day that should otherwise be spent running  or better still sleeping.

Today I planned to go out early(ish) and do a longer circuit because I’ve recently stepped on the scales and decided that a little extra mileage wouldn’t go amiss to burn some calories.    However, early didn’t quite work out as planned.  I adopted plan b and went out in the late afternoon drizzle to run a similar circuit as yesterday.

  1. Couldn’t agree more. Took me longer to get ready that it did to run on Monday. May have to resort to a perma-sportsbra wearing monoboob look throughout January.

  2. Kind of similar to my day – the early start just wasn’t happening today. We renamed Wednesday “Hump-day” because it’s the middle of the week, where you can’t remember last weekend and still aren’t close enough to the coming one…. perhaps that’s what made this morning so difficult. Hopefully tomorrow will be less challenging as we’re over the hump! Keep it up 🙂

  3. I’m loving reading everyone’s comments too, and surprised that we have so many issues in common. the sports bra theme is one i’m going to take up later in the week, and i want to encourage some Haiku on this subject! roll on weekend and we can all get our breath back and congratulate ourselves for running every day for a week!

  4. My other half hoots with laughter at my struggles to get into my sports bra, I have in the past had to even ask him to help me when an arm has got stuck at a ridiculous angle and I am firmly stuck!

  5. May I heartily recommend the ultralongdistance zip-up undergarment from M&S? It is easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy to get into, no yoga moves requires, though admittedly, it doesn’t allow for head resting and napping on longer runs. 🙂

  6. I might give it a try. The shock abosorber run bra is great … once you’ve got it on!

  7. Haha, loving the girlie chat on sports bras! Glad I’m not the only one who struggles to get in and out of them 🙂 Excellent training, well done!
