OT: Zobha and SkirtSports

Zobha Boyshort Panty
Since I've been running my last few runs at the gym I've been having some issues with my underwear chafing in some interesting areas. I usually wear lulu techinikini underwear but the edging around the leg openings combined with how sweaty I get running indoors is causing me problems. I did buy some Body Glide and that helps but I thought I'd try some underwear that had a smoother finish. A few people recommended I try Zobha Boyshort Panties so I ordered a couple pairs this weekend. I'll let you know how I like them. I know some people have recommended running sans underwear but I'm not ready to try that yet.

I also decided to try a pair of the 360 Shorts from their new Performance Tech Collection. My favorite run shorts are my 8" luxtreme Take Flight Bike shorts but until lulu re-releases them I am kind of up a creek. I've been looking at various other manufacturers for something similar. These have a wide waistband and the verbiage says they're compressive so I thought I'd take a chance. Zobha offers free returns so it's no biggie if they don't work out. They are stinking pricey at $68 but I found a coupon code for 20% off. I will let you know what I think when I get them which should be soon since Zobha ships out of northern California.

I also am considering getting a skirt to run in since it's so warm here. I've been looking at the SkirtSports website a lot lately. Lulu skirts don't come in my size and they are awfully short. I don't want to look like a Quaker when I run but I'd like a little more coverage. SkirtSports skirts are another freaking pricey brand so I want to check them out at a run store before I order. I also want to pounce on a sale if I can. I was looking the the race photos people post on their Facebook site and all the women look so cute in their skirts that I want to get in on that action.

(Oh yeah, I've updated the SeaWheeze training page with my current progress for those of you that have been following it.)
