Anyway. Four miles on my mental book today.
I went to work at 5 am, like I do, and I worked two one-hour bootcamps, until 7 am. It was pretty cold this morning (45F degrees) for standing around while other people were exercising. Here's what I had on:
Starting from the bottom:
- My thickest pair of Injinjis
- Another pair of regular socks
- Altra Intuitions
- Running capris
- Yoga pants
- Running tank top
- Short-sleeved running shirt
- Medium-weight jacket (medium for California standards - probably pretty light for other places)
- North Face ThermoBall jacket
- Thick running gloves
- Running buff
|Does this outfit make me look flat?|
And yet, while I was out, I saw several other runners who were bundled up as though we live in the Tundra. Long-sleeved shirts with big jackets, tights with overshorts, thick hats. What is that?
I'm not generally a warm-blooded type - I complain about being cold when I'm at home and the heater is on. And I definitely used to wear more clothing on winter runs, but the older I get, the less I wear. It's funny, because UltraIronHubs used to head out in cold weather with practically nothing on, but these days he layers up like I would dress my babies when they were little. Middle age is a funny time.
