Outfit of the Day for Spin Class

Last and least for the day - my outfit for spin class: Black Biker Groove shorts, Wish Blue Circle Mesh Cool Racerback, Rocksteady Ta Ta Tamer, and Wish Blue Multi Ponch (MUPS) Scuba. Wish Blue is probably my favorite lulu blue. I bought a ton of it when it came out. I tried to take it easy in spin today to not irritate my ITB but it still was a bit sore after class. It seems better now. I think rolling and stretching right away makes a huge difference. I probably will run next on Sunday. The winds tonight have kicked up something fierce - 25-35 mph with gusts to 65 mph - and aren't supposed to die down until tomorrow afternoon. I went out there with my wind meter (yes, I am a bit of a weather geek) to check and it definitely is in that range. I live at the top of the Santa Ana Canyon (where the Santa Ana winds get their name from) so we get very nasty winds here this time of year. My sister is coming into town tomorrow so I am thinking she might run my measly little workout with me. Maybe she'll tape me up with her KT tape. She tells me she liked it for treating her ITB issues.

How is the tape? I have knee problems (possibly runner's knee). Pain happens most after I work out or while lounging at home. Looks interesting anyways!

That hoodie is beautiful, how long ago did you buy it?

I love that hoodie too. Such a great pattern.

Does anyone know what's happening with loot? I sort by size - and then my size doesn't show up when i click on the item. Also, items are listed (new) but totally sold out?

I love that outfit - Wish Blue is gorgeous! I really like seeing your OOTD - it helps me put my own outfits together. I also like your C25K blog. I'm a C25K graduate, a Bridge to 10K graduate, and now a Hal Higdon Half Marathon graduate. I'm running my first half in a few weeks. It's totally normal to be plagued with aches and pains in the early days of C25K because your body is literally learning to run. Your body will adapt and you will be a runner before you know it! Thanks for all the great outfit ideas. :)

I hate running. Always have- over the years, I would make myself run, as I felt it was such good cardio, and the treadmill bored me to no end so I kept envisioning myself effortlessly running along some beautiful outdoor trail. Never happened- running was always very difficult for me and I hated every step.

A good friend of mine is doing the couch to 5K program as well, and is having great success and feels really good about herself and has been reaping health benefits.

Between hearing from her on her progress and reading your comments here, I think I just might give it a try! I definitely need more cardio in my life, and have not found anything that's pure cardio lately. Most exercise dvds now have strength involved, and I gave up my gym membership for yoga and bar studios.

I'm going to check out your C25K blog.

Just popping in to say I LOVE this outfit, LLA. One of my favorite OOTDs to date. The Wish Blue is so pretty and agreed that Scuba is amazing (I want one!:).
And I totally hear ya on the Santa Ana winds. Even up here in LA county we're getting some crazy gusts, which made my evening run last night a PTA.
Enjoy the time with your sis!

@ anon 5:52 am - The multi poncho hoodies came out in late 2010. That scuba is my favorite of the four I own. I had wish I had gotten the gray version when it came out, too.

@ anon 7:16 am - It's good to know it's normal to have aches and pains when starting the C25K prgram. I was writing it off to being older and was getting a little bummed about it. I was hoping that my body would get used to it.

@ monkey girl - I kind of like running so far. I never did as a kid because of my asthma and school gym classes never had you slowly build up your running. Ramping up the running using the C25K is very manageable/endurable. I have to say I like running outside and don't want to go to the gym to do it on a treadmill. I like being able to throw on my clothes and leave the house. The only bad thing is having to dodge dog poo on the sidewalks but that's why I switched to running in the streets in the development across the street from mine. Eventually, I'll start running on local bike paths. I'm actually afraid to try running on the treadmill at the gym - I'm afraid I'll go flying off the back of the treadmill when it comes time to change the pace. (I did that once years ago and it was so embarassing!) If I didn't live in such a mild climate I don't know if I'd feel the same way.

@ staci - I don't know why loot doesn't work correctly. I agree - it's very frustrating.

I flew off the treadmill once, too :D. I live in the mid atlantic now, but am a Florida girl- I do not do well with the cold. We have relatively mild winters compared to the northeast, and I figure that if I transform and take to running, I would be able to handle it come next winter. I plan on starting the couch 2 5K in March.

I'm excited!

I have a scuba question...I can't decide what size I am. My regular lulu size 6 seems tight, do they stretch/ relax a little eventually? Should I size up? The 8seems long in the arms and body. Thanks for any input.
