in celebration of today’s loverly spring weather, i took my New Balance running skirt pictured here out of winter hibernation for tonite’s group run. i think i had only worn it running once-as i had first gotten it just as i was sidelined, and then it got too cold to wear it. but it got good mileage when i was playing Flyer cheerleader 🙂 anyway, it’s just as fun to run in as it is to wear not running.
as a little gift to myself, i decided to get one of the SkirtSports skirts-since I didn’t have the luxury of trying them on, I decided to get one of each style-the GymGirl and the MarathonGirl-and just return the style I don’t like (I got the all-black one-figured that would coordinate best!) they’re due to ship Saturday, hopefully I will get next week (and of course will post a review)
today was a fun, easy 6 mile loop with the Flyers. then after the run, we ran into a bunch of other Flyers finishing doing speedwork, others finishing their own runs and chatted for a bit…that’s one great thing about the nicer temps, no rush to get inside!!
so, the weekend long run plan will be 13…since Saturday looks to be rainy, an idea I had was possibly to do a loop before the Scotland Run on Sunday and then bandit that…or run in the other direction to cheer the others on… But this is all providing I wake up in time, especially after having to lose an hour sleep due to “springing forward…” I also have the option of the afternoon since Sunday looks to have nice weather as well…decisions, decisions.
(btw-the song i’m currently listening to is awesome…i heard it in spin class the other day and had to download it…it’s definitely going on my mix for the queens half. 9 1/2 minutes, but worth it!)
