I'm not one to worry too much about how I look. When I started running 30 or so months ago I almost always wore painters shorts and cotton tee shirts, with cotton socks to complete the ensemble. Not too much pride there.

Things are a little different now. I'm still not much of a fashion statement (black shorts on almost all runs don't lend oneself to a Paris runway), but I looked into several stores at the mall today and failed to find shorts I liked. I'm getting old, so I'm told; all the shorts were too long. What's this stuff with the shorts going below the knees? For running? Nope.

So I'll keep looking, but rest assured, I'll spare your eyes a pair of those split running shorts that cover practically nothing.

Oh yeah, I usually run on the second day after running...not this time. I had to leave town on a business trip and got back late today, and with my series of recent runs and aching shins I decided to take the day off. Interestingly, my legs seemed a little itchy late this afternoon...maybe I need to run? I have a run planned for tomorrow, regardless.

  1. Thank you for your info on HRM numbers on my blog. It is a help and the calculation you suggested to do, tells me my chart is fine. I find buying nice running cloths every now and then is great motivation. Thank you for passing on those short split running shorts!
