I have been slacking on my morning outdoor running. Hopefully next week I can get back into my regular running schedule. This week I had to settle for an early evening run.
Getting out of work at 4pm is the best because there is just enough daylight to get a decent 4 mile run in.
I changed into my under armour cold gear (the top I got for Christmas and I love it), pulled on my gloves and headband and hit the road. It was colder than I thought so I was a bit cold to start out with (28F/-2C). Maybe one layer of under armour spandex was not enough?
After about 10 minutes, I warmed up and fell into a groove. I know a lot of people say that, but I really only feel this way in the winter because I can actually feel my body warm up. I had mapped out a short loop and a long loop so I could go either way depending on how I was feeling. I chose the long loop, 4.3 miles of peaceful running where I really focused on enjoying every step!
Afterward I took a few pictures just so I could remember this run! I didn't notice I had sweat stains on my elbows. Seems I only really sweat in two distinct places - my elbows and my armpits.
So now that my run is done what to do with the workout clothes? Caitlin over at Healthy Tipping Point posted early this week about "The great stinky workout clothes debate". She talked about re-wearing workout clothes.
Yes that does sound gross but I must confess that I do it too.
Only in the winter!
I only have two pair of good cold weather spandex and 3 tops. So I usually try to wear them a few times before washing them because I don't really sweat that much.
In the summer there is no way I could do this unless I was absolutely desperate and didn't have any clean laundry. I sweat way too much to re-wear my summer workout clothes!
Do you re-wear workout clothes or is that just too much?
