Every time I go to a race, I always see women in running skirts and I really wanted to try one out! Nicole from RunnerNic was nice enough to send me a running skirt that she had that she wasn't using! Thanks so much Nicole!! When I got it in the mail I was so excited to try it! I would have taken pictures pre-run but this morning it was so dark out.
So I ran in the skirt this morning and I really liked it. This skirt has built in spandex shorts which was nice, they didn't ride up and I felt comfortable to whole run.
I did a fartlek run, as suggested by the coach from the track workout on Tuesday. My legs were still a little tight from the track but the burst of speed made this run very enjoyable.
I ran 15 x 1 minute fartleks with 30 seconds fast, 30 seconds medium easy.
Below is a picture of (one pair of) my current running shoes, men's Nimbus' (I also have women's 1150's). The men's shoes have almost 500 miles on them and are still going strong, the women's have 250 miles and feel like they are dying. I have always run in Asics but I am thinking of switching. Over the weekend I went to the local running store and tried on a bunch of shoes. I ended up buying a pair of Brooks but then returned them last night because I am afraid to switch. What kind of shoes do you run in? Why do you like them?
Saturday Brian and I are running in another 5k! Happy Thursday (almost the weekend!!)
