Rocking a run AND running shorts

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

I finally got myself some shorts to run in. I hate my thighs (yes, really) and never considered running in shorts before, but I figured that if I could probably pull them off. So glad I did, they are so much better than leggings, especially in this heat!


Please ignore the horrible posture, I had just done a boxing class and a run back to back. I was tired.

Speaking of my run, I went on one. I don't hate it or suck at it so I'd like to run more often. The heat has been the main thing stopping me; It has been in the mid to high twenties (celcius, google for Fahrenheit) here all summer, and the heat and I do not see eye to eye. Anyways, I set out to do 4km in 28 minutes and it turns out that my route was 120 meters longer, so I ran 4.14km in 28 minutes. SWEET! That's less than 7 minute per km, which is a full minute and 45 seconds per km FASTER than I was this time last year! AND the only time I stopped was when I had to tie my shoe (and boy was I annoyed since I wanted to do the whole thing without stopping).

Since my run went so well I think I will sign up for the 6k I was looking at. I can easily train for a 6k in a month since I can already run 4. And it's $15. And literally 3km down the road. No reason not to sign up, really!

    Yes you look great in those shorts. 20c - that sounds pretty comforting - my summers can get 30 ish that is breath zapping. But great job on the run well done.

    You look great in those shorts! And great job on that run! Go ahead on and sign up for the 6K. :)

    I am envious if your summer "only" gets to mid-high twenties. [I put only in quotes because I understand it's relative to what you're used to.] Anyway, summers here have many weeks ate 30-35. Ugh!
