This morning I went out for my first run post-marathon. 3 easy miles.

photo 1 I felt ok for the most part. Just some soreness in the quads. Oh and a groin twerk tweak…..that pesky groin strain seems to have reared it’s ugly head again. It first bothered me back in June after I started doing some squats one morning and I guess I wasn’t warmed up.¬†Well, I suppose it’s been working really hard and just letting me know it’s time to take a rest. So after Saturdays 1/2 marathon i’ll be taking at least 7 straight days off to rest it.

Today I alternated between frozen corn and a heating pad. I’ll repeat tomorrow.

ice packs are boring. frozen corn is fun.

I was kinda bummed about it so I decided to go to my favorite store and use a gift card I got from my 40th birthday. ALL Reebok apparel was on sale 50% off. I bought 2 pairs of long running pants. The Reebok Women’s Printed Waistband Performance Pants

and the Reebok Printed tight Fit Printed Performance Legging

Total was $55! SCORE! It’s hard to believe my big 40th birthday bash was 2 weeks ago! I just put away my cards. (Yes! I’m a pack rat and save all birthday and Christmas cards each year)

It’s gonna be about 30 degrees at the start on Saturday. So I’m going through all my winter running gear from last year to see what’s what. I think I’ve got plenty for this season but always good to take inventory.

Question: Favorite winter running gear?

  1. Oooo… I like those running tights! Do you have any other Reebok? Recommended? I bought a bunch of new leggings last year have a trail run left me with holes in the knees of my favorite pair… So far I like the Jockey ones I got from Kohl’s best, I think? It’s been awhile since I’ve worn leggings!

    • I never wore Reebok pants before so I took a leap of faith today buying them. The tights fit really nice. I’ll find out on Saturday if they stay in place. No drawstring so I worry they’ll slide down. But the price was right and I loved the ombr√© effect. =) The other pants are fairly standard. Like yoga pants. Of course they are long on me since i’m so short. I might have to hem them. lol!
