Today’s workout targeted my whole body. After 20 minutes on the elliptical, I did the total body workout detailed in Tina’s Best Body Boot Camp plan.
I hope I’m not too sore from today’s workout on Saturday since competing in an indoor triathlon with sore hamstrings or shoulders does not sound like fun! Fortunately today’s workout wasn’t overly intense, so I think I’ll be okay for the race. Running or biking with lead legs sounds pretty miserable!
A perfectly ripe avocado chillin’ in our pantry was the inspiration behind today’s breakfast.
Today’s scrambled egg mixture included a sliced chicken sausage, cauliflower and avocado. A winning combination!
Race Shirt Preferences
This morning I received an email from ZOOMA that included a few questions about race t-shirts:
- What kinds of shirts do you prefer from races (short sleeve, tank, wicking, life style, etc.)?
- Have you ever purchased a shirt from a race (outside of the one that comes with registration)?
- What kind of shirt are you most likely to buy (long sleeve, hoodie ,burn out, tech, etc.)?
As I mentioned on Monday’s post about what to do with old race t-shirts, I rarely wear race t-shirts. Occasionally I’ll wear them to bed or to the gym, but I prefer to workout in tank tops since I sweat so much, and my race t-shirts often remain untouched.
The race t-shirt I wear the most isn’t a particularly attractive shirt, but it is long-sleeved, which I love for running outside in the winter in Florida.
I think I may be in the minority with loving long-sleeve race shirts, but I get really excited when a race shirt is something a little different from the standard or dri-fit t-shirt. I’ve never seen a race tank top, but I would be incredibly excited about that, as I’m sure it would get a lot of wear.
I also like it when shirts are not white. So many race shirts are white, so when a race shirt varies in color, they stand out to me a little bit more.
Aside from long-sleeved shirts, perhaps my favorite race shirts are those that don’t look like race shirts.
I got the above t-shirt at the Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon last September and love it because the trees on the shirt remind me of the trees along the race course, but the shirt itself doesn’t look like a typical athletic shirt.
Now I ask you…
Questions of the Morning
- What is your favorite kind of race shirt?
- What features would you like to see offered in a race shirt that would make you love it?
I would love to see a lightweight tank top race shirt that is extra long. That would be right up my alley!
