Note: This post is probably TMI and quite disgusting. Anyway, you have been warned.
Today I had a major wardrobe fail, one I’ve never had before. I forgot to pack my sports bra. As I didn’t want to skip my planned Lunch Break Run (yes, I’m stubborn), I decided to run in my ‘normal’ bra. That worked surprisingly well. My heart rate monitor strap kept sliding down, but I don’t think that was related. When I took off my running clothes, I noticed that my bra was completely soaked. Shoot! I tried to dry it with my blow dryer, but that didn’t really work. So after taking a shower, I had to put my stinky, soaked bra back on. Gross!
Lesson of the day: Always double-check your gym bag before heading out the door!
Anyway, the run itself was great. Today I ran with a different co-worker, let’s call him Woody, whose comfortable pace is also comfortable for me. Winning! We took a slightly different route, so I had to guesstimate the distance. This route contains a very steep hill, that I mostly walked up. But the downhill part felt much worse, actually. I’ll probably walk funny tomorrow. Ouch!
- Distance: 4.6 miles (7,4 km)
- Time: 55:00 minutes
- Average pace: 11:57 min/mile
- Feeling: Chatty
That was the longest run in quite a while! Woody and I were talking all the time, about fitness, health, weight loss, diet, family, and before I knew it, almost an hour had passed and we were done. That’s why I love running with others, it’s so much more fun than running alone.
Have you ever had a workout wardrobe fail? How did you handle it?
