2XU Trial

Tested out my 2XU compression pants today.I bought the short one as I am not usually used to wearing long ones as it's too hot to wear one.

Verdict? It's good. Cost me over RM200 but it's worth it. For one it didn't ride up my legs, secondly it absorbs and wicks sweat pretty well.

My only grouse is that it made me feel a tad like bak chang :P

Did a 12km run incorporating the double hill route.

The Return of Thunder Thighs!

Ok it's been 6.5 months since I last blogged! Was without a laptop for about 6 months - survived mostly on office desktop and ocassionally,borrowing someone else's laptop! It's amazing I got by, which goes to show that I wasn't really addicted to the internet, it was a matter of self discipline and limiting my time on the net. Even after I finally got my laptop, I was rarely on, and even if I was online I would be checking emails or news mainly. I guess I found better things to do, like read instead of surfing the net for junk.

Anyway, thought I would have something to blog about...recently bought a running skirt from C-Cube and I tested it out this morning. I had wanted a running skirt for the longest time but was always worried that the thunder thighs would attract too much attention, but after a while I thought what the heck, I am such a wannabe runner, I'll just be a bit more thick skinned and pretend I am a super athlete and look cool in the skirt.

My verdict? I loved it! It did not flap while running, neither did it slide down. WHen I was buying it, I was told that you need a bit of a belly to hold the skirt up.Well guess what? I don't only have a belly but I also have a big a** to hold it up! Voila!

Also, I think the skirt is very flattering, especially for women with (what else) big a** and thunder thighs. So, sorry stick insects, this is 1 time we steatopygic women will look better than you haha!

As much as i love it, I think I will stick to tights for longer runs though, just to keep any possibilty of chafing at bay.
