It's one of those gym days. I went today and bought a pair of Nike Tempo running shorts (they were on sale at the Exchange) because I love all the fun colors, but hate running in shorts. They always bunch up on me in the inner thighs, and I spend the whole time trying to pull them down, so I don't look like a trashy hootchie mama. But, I read some really good reviews saying these don't bunch, and they are so popular, I figured, heck, if everyone is buying them, they must be not be too bad, right?
Wrong. I think I just run weird, because those suckers got sucked up almost immediately. It's like my girly parts are a running shorts vacuum. So... these will be used for non running activities. They are super comfy, though, so I may get a few more pair for lifting and such. Especially since I think I might be injured. AGAIN.
Yes, it's true. I left the gym defeated and wanting to cry the whole 1/2 a mile or so walk home. The worst part is that it's not the same place I was hurt before. It's like my legs really don't like me. I'm 24 for crying out loud, I should not be this injury-prone! I'm trying not let it get me super upset, but darn it! I really like running. I like how it makes me feel, and if I miss a day of running, I want it to be because it's my choice, not because my legs hurt. Plus, I hate, hate, hate, hate the elliptical. And my butt falls asleep on the bike. Remember, no cushion back there.... Haha.
I mean, if it still hurts this bad tomorrow, I guess I just have to suck it up, and ellipticize my life (and hopefully a few pounds...) away. But I'm still kind of sad. I just want them to be strong, and stop getting hurt. I noticed when I was doing my lunges everyday, they seemed better. I think I'm going to start doing more leg work, and pull back on running for a while. Though it breaks my little heart. :(
Oh well. It happens, and I will get through it. Who knows, maybe I'll come back to the States and fall in love with spin. :)
