Gear that brings no joy (Read 1318 times)


Needs more cowbell!

     After my long run yesterday, it was like a second workout getting the damn sports bra off. ARGH!

     

    There are people on MyFitnessPal.com that would probably create a custom workout/calorie-burn category for sports-bra removal.  Perhaps they're not all that irrational for doing so.  Certainly no more irrational than the people who log housework. Tongue

    I've got a fever...

      It's not fair to say that sportsbras bring no joy.  They bring me joy.

      On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

        It's not fair to say that sportsbras bring no joy.  They bring me joy.

         

        And there are probably many men here who would help these poor women get out of their sports bras.

          I think a lot of the lads on here would agree that taking a sports bra off a lass who's fresh from a workout and still sweaty is superduperawesome. Undoubtedly some subconscious thing about post-carnal flushes.

            The only picture that brings to mind is one of getting stuck halfway out of a sweaty running bra.

              haha. Darn it, I should have added that to my day's exercise log! It had to burn @ least 30 calories... Wink

                Yes, the half in/half out/help my arm is stuck look is very, very hot!

                Being the best tiny spec that I can be!

                  Some of those damn bras have so many hooks and snaps and wires and adjusty parts (technical term) that it is some form of rocket science to figure out how to get them on and off.

                    I DEFINITELY agree with the sports bra thing!!  After Adidas decided to change the fit of the bra I was using, I used the same ones for almost 2 years.  Then this spring, I found some that FIT and I could afford, so I bought a few.  Oh, and getting them off when wet???  Sometimes nearly impossible.  I have a habit of going for a run then jumping in the lake when camping...in my clothes.  
                    Another thing is shorts.  After buying so many pairs that have the same problem of riding up my thighs, I've given up having any joy at the thought that a new pair may not do that.

                          Almost forgot. DD has a pink sports bra.  When she sweats, the color bleeds through and stains whatever her outerwear is.  Badly.

                          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                              What I can't figure out is why most of the dry fit clothing is made of black material. I'm running in the summer and wearing super thin shirts. Shouldn't be be some color other than black? My whole point in wear it is to try and stay cool.
