I was a bit grumpy on my run yesterday…
I set out on my run and realized right away that the sports bra I was wearing was annoying. I didn’t have a lot of time to go back and change so I just kept telling myself that it would start feeling better soon—> that never happened. When it comes to running gear, I don’t want to think once about what I am wearing during the run. I don’t want to be distracted by adjusting things or feel uncomfortable. Running is hard enough ha, our gear should make us more comfortable!
8.14 miles @ 8:55 pace in the rain.
Since I talked about a sports bra that made me grumpy ha, I want to talk about one that I love because yesterday’s experience made me beyond grateful for a good sports bra.
I have been loving the Brooks Drive Convertible Run Bra. I feel held in with this bra and have close to zero bounce which I greatly appreciate. I love that you are able to wear this bra as a scoopback or use the clip in the back to make it a racerback bra. Between the option for scoopback/racer back and the straps in the back that are easy to adjust = you get to choose to make it fit exactly the way you want it to. Whatever is going on with my hormones these days makes it so I chafe a lot easier than normal and with this bra, I have zero chafing.
Are they teenagers?! They had their first day of school.
Skye had the hardest time out of everyone saying goodbye.
Our next stop was over to my sister’s house to do some strength training. Yesterday we focused on glutes with all of the moves in this post! Now that school is in session it is going to be easier to keep up with strength because I can just go to my sister’s house after I drop off the big kids and do it with her. She prefers strength over cardio so when I tell her I don’t want to, she convinces me to do it.
This nephew of mine loves Beck so much. He calls him ‘Baby Beck’ and includes Beck in every prayer and talks about him often to my sister. A lot of people think they look a lot alike and I completely agree.
We got to Facetime with my nephew that is on a mission for a bit too!
My nephew came over afterward and they played Dinosaur Polly Pockets;)
We had a meeting with Brooke’s teacher after school.
3/3 of our kids are beyond happy about their teachers for this school year.
And just a cute picture from yesterday that made me happy.
Soooooo excited for NYC Marathon!
Tell me about what you look for in a sports bra? Anything that drives you crazy?
Strength or cardio for exercise, which do you prefer. If you run and lift… which one do you do first? How do you fit it into your schedule?
Do you get a lot of rain in your area? Run in the rain or wait for it to pass?
Any running gear/clothing that has driven you crazy while on the run?
