Sometimes I like to eat chocolate in the morning after I finish my breakfast.
I knew it was going to be another cold morning, so I headed to the gym to run on the treadmill.
I actually started out really slow–as in 10:30 minutes/mile slow. I only stayed at that pace for about 0.5 miles and continued to increase the pace throughout my workout. The second half of my workout was at a 8:00 – 8:30 minutes per mile pace.
Prior to running, I made myself a delicious piece of French toast to power me through my run.
I topped it with banana slices, walnuts, coconut, and raspberry jam. Yum!
When I run outside in the winter, I have the hardest time keeping my legs, specifically my thighs, warm. It seems as though my legs should be the warmest with all the muscle mass and blood pumping through my legs, but I guess that’s not the case. Anyone know why this is?
Anyhow, these are a few pairs of pants I rely on to keep me warm–or at least not from going numb!
These are my newest (and favorite) pants for running in. They are slightly fitted through the thigh and loose around my calves. They are nice and long and have a thin fleece lining on the inside to help keep me warm.
These are your standard Under Armour tights. I wear these nearly every day as my baselayer. They are quite ancient seeing I purchased them at least 6 years ago at TJMaxx for about $16, but they still do their job.
I really like these pants for fall/early spring running. They are super comfortable and fit really well.
I appreciate that the pocket in the back is centered, so that when you do fill it with your belongings, you don’t become lopsided.
The zippers on the bottom are great for adjusting the tightness around your ankles when running and help when getting the tights on and off. There are also reflective strips at the bottom for safety.
Craig and I are now headed out to lunch! We don’t often go out for lunch but with our day off, we decided to do something a little special!
I just had half of this package of Clif Shot Bloks to tie my over until lunch. The strawberry flavor was really good!
Any recommendations for winter running pants? Or how I can keep my legs warm?
