And that someone is me.
I feel like a hot mess whenever I put on my running gear. My knee sleeves are totally shot â€“ they are fraying at the top of the patella hole and the plastic tube that supports the inferior part of the knee is popping out of the neoprene. I typically replace them every 3 â€“ 4 months but Iâ€™m nearing 6 months without new ones. My knees are starting to feel it (hereâ€™s why I wear knee sleeves).
Plus â€“ my sneakers are destroyed (I wear Brooks Summon).
I havenâ€™t replaced my sneakers since the Disney Marathon (I got away with this because I spent most of the spring on my bike). The tread is fine, but the back fabric has worn away, leaving the hard plastic exposed. Iâ€™ve got the blisters to show for it!
Iâ€™ve ordered new sleeves and shoes and CANNOT wait for them to get here! New gear makes the difference, doesnâ€™t it?
Toast with chunky PB and fresh raspberries (oh, how I love it when raspberries are in season!):
I ran 3.0 miles this morning in about 29:00. Iâ€™m keeping it light for a Saturday because tomorrow is a long-run day for marathon training. Iâ€™m going to try to pound out 15 miles (I have a back-up pair of older sneakers that Iâ€™m going to wear â€“ the current ones would not make it 15 miles!).
Iâ€™m off to brunch at Emilyâ€™s house! I hope you have a wonderful Saturday.
How often do you replace your workout gear?
