I got a pair of Lululemon shorty shorts on ebay recently for a pretty great price. I had been really wanting a pair, but not wanting to pay full price for them. I have to say I love them. I think if they were a little longer I would love them even more. Lots of great pockets and sticky elastic on the hem around the leg openings so they don't ride up.
They are pretty much just like the shorts that are under the Lulu skirts only they have more pockets. I love running in these.
Speaking of running I ran 5 miles this morning, 5 very hot miles. I also did a 100 m dash as practise for the Run with Jess Virtual Games . I was a sprinter in high school. I love how good it feels to just all out sprint... and then reality sets in and I realize I am getting to old for this. Just kidding but it is hard!
Then I finished with a 5 mile bike ride. Biking in the heat is not as bad as running in the heat in my opinion which is not based on a lot of experience. There was a slight breeze though that really helped.
My foot is feeling good. Not even a twinge today. YAY! I am hoping to get in a double digit run later next week if it continues to feel good.
I have been spending so much more time cross training post marathon on both the bike and the elliptical. It is a nice break from so much running. PLUS I can watch Greys Anatomy reruns on the elliptical.
I watched part of the opening ceremonies last night. I have to face it though. I don't like to stay up late and watching the athletes march into the stadium in alphabetical order by country is really boring. I think I made it to Denmark and called it a night.
Now I am going to go eat some of the lemon meringue pie my grandma and her sister sent home with me from dinner last night :)
