|5 mi progression run|
I was elated! That’s a HUGE smile hiding behind my phone.
I had just read a Runner’s World article sharing a simple mantra for runners: ABC
Checking in on these three points during a challenging part of your run gives you new focus.
My focus during the progression run: Cadence, cadence, cadence.
Oh, runner’s high, I missed you!
I shared the news with Coach immediately who was knocking out a Crossfit WOD.
We love using our lunch breaks to sneak a workout in. I choose sweat over smelling nice the rest of the day. Sometimes I use hand sanitizer to shower. What? Its antibacterial!
This weekend I tested out Tommie Copper compression shorts.
They are longer than my Nike ProFit shorts which have a 5″ inseam. The material is super light, very comfortable, moisture wicking, and stays in place.
I took them on a 4 mile run and prefer this length since my thighs tend to get hungry and eat my shorts.
Regarding compression, they are not as tight as my Aspaeris shorts. However, I ordered a medium based on sizing chart and while the waist fits well, I would like the legs a bit tighter. So, if you decide to order a pair, size down.
I also tested out the Clean Bottle “Runner” model. Great concept: the top and bottom of the bottle unscrew for easier cleaning.
|iPhone holder + bottle|
The Runner model holds an iPhone and has additional storage in handle for gels.
The size of the bottle was perfect for me! My Nathan hydration hand held is too wide so my hand ends up cramping and it’s storage compartment too small for a phone.
It kind of looks like I’m flipping you off with my favorite nuun flavor in the photo above. Oops!
Do you prefer a handheld bottle or a hydration belt on your runs?
What is your running mantra?
