Under Armour Underwear


Ever since I saw these in the local running store a week before my first half marathon, I have wanted a pair of underwear from Under Armour. They looked fairly comfortable and although I was kinda skeptical if the boy short cut would work I still bought two pair.

I wore them underneath my spandex/spankie shorts at the meet and they were very comfortable. My uniform spandex were not very good and that caused some problems but I didn't spend any time "picking my seat" at the meet because there was no real underwear to "wedge" in anywhere.

They stayed in place very well and overall I would highly recommend them - it felt like I was wearing regular underwear the whole time! They are kind of expensive but if you want to treat yourself, it is well worth it.

In other news - Yesterdays (Tuesday) track workout...

All of the sprinters wanted to do the short sprinting workout so I was left alone to run 400s by myself. I did 5x400m @ 65% with 400m jog recovery in between. I wanted to try and stay between 85 and 90 seconds on these. Once again I was messed up by the indoor track since I was running in the 2nd/3rd lane I ran more than 400m but my times were still pretty decent!

87, 93, 90, 89, 94 seconds (minus 1.5 to 2 seconds for lane 2 and additional meterage (??))

After practice we had a team meeting where Coach announced the womens and mens captains and guess what!! I am one of the Women's team Captains!! Surprise surprise, especially to me because I did not expect this but my coach said that he thinks I have many natural leadership qualities. Alison is also a Captain with me which is awesome!

So thats all I have for now! Only two more days of school for me until break!! YAY!

I don't know if I could do a post regarding my underwear. That only comes from the true confidence that a team captain can provide.

Thanks for sharing about the undies. I'm always tempted to try those, but I never had because I wanted to hear from someone else first. I might have to get me some now. Congrats on team captain!
