Last night, after a soul-crushing run attempt, I decided it's time for a change in my workout plan. I've been seriously neglecting cross-training lately, and it's just not good for morale to cheat on your best friend like that. To be completely honest, I haven't exactly been following my training plan. I've been getting in the miles and doing the work, just not necessarily on the prescribed days. So, anyhow, I'll be making running my bitch on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays and the rest of the days are up-for-grabs. Yeehaw!
It really has been way too long since I've seen hot gym guy.
Yesterday I received the knickers that I won in the mail. I put them on and, while they are super comfy (like, I might order another pair, comfortable), compressing, they are not. They're called compression knickers, but I wasn't feeling it. Maybe whomever named them had on a pair that was a couple sizes too small.
|I only wish these were my legs.|
So, remember when I talked about going for a run in my dark neighborhood early in the morning? Yeah, I just couldn't. The thought of being dragged into the woods by a creeper and never seen again scared me, as did the thought of being attacked by wild boars or a giant snake. (Anything can happen in the wilderness!) I am not so naive, however, that I don't understand I will soon have to run in the dark, as the dark and dreary winter is approaching. Since I doubt I can afford to hire someone to follow me with a spotlight, I'm thinking of putting a pair of knuckle lights on my Christmas list.

Now, someone just needs to invent toe lights and knee lights and waist lights. Or, you know, my neighborhood could just spring for some street lights, except that wouldn't make me look like a lit up moron. What's the fun in that?
Are you afraid of running in the dark and being eaten by a wild boar?
Are you already planning your running gear Christmas list? What's on it?
