After yesterday’s little extra snooze session, I thought I was getting back on track. I even packed my bag the night before so I could run during my lunch break – you know, a “runch”. Win – win for everyone, right!?!?!?
I spent the morning hydrating and eating food at the right time so that I could run and THEN eat my lunch. As I opened my bag and starting pulling out my running sneakers and clothing, I KNEW I had made a mistake.
I forgot my sports bra! Frig! (And that’s not really what I said but it started with the letter F, so you get the point).
Well, sh*t, I forgot my sports bra…worst thing I could forget…besides my running shoes.
Option #1: Run in normal bra and not wear a bra for the rest of the afternoon.
Option #2: Run in normal bra and wear a sweaty bra all afternoon.
Option #3: Run without a sports bra.
After 5 minutes of contemplating each option, I decided NO to all options. I just couldn’t do it. What a fail…I was so pumped up about the run.
I managed to get my run in and more later that night. But, really, I just wanted to hang out with my husband since he was home. After we got the girls to bed, I hopped on the treadmill. My run went a little like this:
Run 1k, 40 jumping jacks, 30 crunches, 20 squats, 10 push ups and then repeated this 5 times.
After the first round I kinda thought it was going to be a weak workout. Then around 1/2 way I decided I should add some weights to the squats…yeah bad idea. As each kilometer started I would increase my speed and incline and my little legs where just pumping during that last kilometer!
I got off the treadmill and got ready for my last set of jumping jacks, crunches, squats and push- ups….man this round was WEAK!!
BUT…at least I had my sports bra on 🙂
Ever forget that essential piece of gear for a run or workout?
