good easy afternoon 7.58 mi 01:13 09:34 pace

felt tired today but finally forced myself out for a sunshine break in the middle of the busy day. ive decided this is the summer i will finally run in a sports bra and shorts, no tank and be ok with it. im quite self conscious and really shouldnt be. im not tiny, but im smaller than a lot of people. so i tucked my tank around my waist and hit the beach path. it felt really good. i quickly stopped caring. so many men run with their shirts off its not fair that women hide under so much fabric more often. kept it easy, did 10 x 10 sec hill sprints for form and ran back while baring my ribs. plus i need to work on getting some more even tan lines

    Yep, men would agree with you. It's not fair that they get to run topless and women don't! Nice 8 Michelle!

    Note to self: Run the beach path more often. Who knows if one way is cooler than another. You still sweat, the shirt holds in the moisture to cool you, but you're less warm by being covered. Vicious circle! Solid miles today.

    I'm not going to complain if women want to take off there tops! More seriously, good to hear you put your self-consciousness aside and ran free. That's just fun. I think you missed the video of the KB routine I posted today and I think you might enjoy giving the routine a try.

    Michelle! YOU ARE GORGEOUS! Trust me, I do not have awesome abs but I started running in shorts & sports bra last summer out of comfort and no one has stopped me to force me to wear more clothes :) Nice run and keep that confidence level high!
