The compression shorts came with directions as to how to put them on. I took a quick look at the directions and the shorts and they looked to me a lot like Spanx (girls, you know what I'm talking about). Yes, I admit I have Spanx and wear them as needed (on those rare occasions I dress up) so I went about putting the shorts on just like I put on Spanx...one leg at a time. I do have a few questions...why does the draw string pull out so far that I can easily pull it past my shoulder?
Second, what is with the seams? When I put the shorts on and looked in the mirror it looked like I had granny undies on over a pair of black shorts. Yes, part was the lighting, but the seams didn't help. So, I did what any (not) sane person would do, I took a picture of my bum. I know we all want to see a picture of my bum, so here it is:
On to the running stuff because I just don't want to talk about my back side any longer. Today's treadmill run included a .5 mile warm up, 6 mile tempo run, .5 mile cool down, walk to finish out the time on the treadmill to the nearest multiple of 5 minutes. The run went well and once I made it past the first three miles I felt great. Next up: 10 miler this Sunday at the last Winter Series. I have never actually run a 10 mile race so what ever time I get will be a PR. I have not decided if I'll use it as a training run or to see if I can hold my hopeful half-marathon pace for 10 miles.
