Lycra Busting

Tuesday, May 06, 2014

Oh, but there WAS new territory forged after all!

I forgot to mention another change: way back when I started wearing bicycle shorts I decided: Nobody is ever going to see me out in public wearing such lycra / spandex!

So I covered up my bike shorts with regular shorts.

Since I discovered a few weeks ago that I actually managed to fit into the spandex-lycra-style bike club jersey I've toyed with the thought: hmm...perhaps I could "get away" with wearing my bike shorts in public now too...

Well during my jogs in prepping for the 5K a very annoying and embarrassing, yet rewarding "problem" kept dogging me: with each step of my jogging gait my newly deflated belly flab would slap my thigh with a loud, clapping sound.

Ugh.

So I decided for my 5K I was going to solve the problem by wearing my bike shorts as a sort of girdle. Problem solved, PLUS it was my first "coming out" in public wearing my bike shorts! While I'm not entirely pleased with my appearance in my bike shorts and jersey, I'm "good enough!" :-)

Oversight: No picture!

This coming Saturday for the bike giveaway we've been encouraged to wear our bike jerseys. So I will be wearing BOTH bike jersey and bike shorts AND will do my best to remember to get a pic to share!

Have a super week everyone!
