Three Things Thursday

1. Yesterday, due to a laundry situation, I ended up wearing an old sports bra that should be retired. Every time I wear it, I vow that will be the last time. Here's why:



I even used Body Glide because I worried that might happen! Now it is officially being taken out of circulation. I can understand chafing like this from a marathon or even a long run, but not an 11-miler! Ouch!

2. This morning I got to "sleep-in" until 6AM for a short recovery run. I'll be heading out after work for just a few more, running to and from our clinic session. I'm trying to save my legs for tomorrow's tempo run, so I thought that breaking it up into two shorter runs would be the best option for today. (Total 10K) My legs are undoubtedly tired from yesterday's MWMLR so I'm just hoping they'll cooperate tomorrow.

3. On Saturday hubs and I will be heading to the Dirty Girls 6, 12 and 24 hour trail race to cheer for some of our friends who are running. It will be my first time at any ultra or trail event, so I'm looking forward to seeing what it's all about.

Happy Thursday (almost Friday)!

Ultras are CRAZY! I watched the Burning River 100 Mile Endurance Run last weekend and was in complete awe. I'll never say that I'm tired from a run ever again!

One sure way to get rid of that sport bra is to throw it in the garbage, girl!!! Have a great weekend with the ultra friends!

the only thing i didn't miss about running for that month was bra chafing. i'm dreading going back to it.

I've done that to myself with countless bras and shorts. Good thing you got rid of that! Have a great time at the ultra/trail event!

Char said...

Take that bra to the rubbish bin and throw it away! Right now!! It's no longer a friend of yours and it's served its purpose.

Heidi said...

OWIE! Definitely time to retire that bra. I'm such a wimp with chafing. The slightest pinkish mark and I'm whining.

Amy said...

Ouch! I hope that bra is in the garbage! Good luck with the tempo run and have fun at the race this weekend!

destination262 said...

Oouchie!! I would definitely be getting rid of that thing. You can look at it as a war wound from your 11 miler. LOL! Have fun this weekend! :)

Mel -Tall Mom on the Run said...

My favorite sports bras do that to my back but only on runs more than 20 miles..

I CANNOT pull my self out of bed before 6:10 lately... I used to get up at 5:15..

Dirty Girls.. LOL!!

lindsay said...

Oh cmon, woman up! I still wear bras from high school sometimes (circa 1998-2000). You know, those high quality cotton variety! ;) sooo comfy.

Have a great weekend with the hubs!
