Ultimate Coffee Date – April

It’s that time of the month…

Crystal Ball Frappuccino was disappointing. Did you try one?

to join up with Coco & Deborah for their ultimate coffee date.

Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I am so sick of this cold weather that to cheer myself up, I bought a new skirt and tank top (like a really need new running clothes…)  When will I be able to wear them??? It doesn’t look like anytime in the near future.  I may have to resort to the treadmill just to wear my new clothes!!!

Have you bought any new spring/summer running clothes?

Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I always buy the SAME Skirt Sports running skirt – Gym Girl Ultra.  It’s not too long and not too short.  I hate to have too much of my thighs showing.

But I took a big risk, I bought my first shorter skirt – the Lioness.  You may never see me wear it in public…

Is it too short for someone almost 65 yrs old?

Over coffee…

I’d tell that I schedule my rest days according to my work schedule. That means if I can run, I do and if I don’t have time, I don’t.  Unfortunately sometimes I run 3 days in a row and sometimes I rest 3 days in a row…

great scenery but not a great run since my legs were too tired to move

How do you schedule your runs and rest days?

Over coffee…

I’d tell you that I paid $$ to join the Freihofer Training Challenge even though of the TEN Mondays runs, due to work, I can only attend THREE!!! One each month…. UGH!!!! So disappointed because I think the drills would help me get faster.

My first one. Next one will be week 6 and then week 10.

I probably wasted money, right?

Happy Running! Got anything to spill? Share it here!

  1. Aww, totally wear the new outfit on the ‘mill, you need to enjoy the Skirt Sports goodness!
    I am also a huge GGU fan, so that’s what I basically have tons of. 🙂 Been considering the Lioness or Jette, but I dunno I am so comfy in the Gym Girl!


  2. Heck no! That skirt is not too short for you! Besides, you don’t even come close to looking like a 63 year old anyway!! I have the Lioness skirt and love it… you will too. I’ve been wanting to try the Gym Girl skirt …what size do you buy? I guess it runs the same as the other skirts?

    • Thanks for the encouragement. I think the ggu runs a little looser. Also different patterns fit differently. It depends how you like your clothes. I prefer them loose than too right so I often buy a medium although I could probably fit into a small.


  3. It’s so disappointing when work gets in the way of stuff you want to do!!!! It took me a couple of years to find a yoga class that I could attend because most are during the day! I wouldn’t worry about your skirt being too short, if you are running you are running!

  4. What a bummer that you can’t make more of the training runs. I’d probably be pissed that I paid money for something I couldn’t do regularly. I hope the weather turns spring soon so you can wear your new clothes. I don’t wear running skirts very often, but I’d probably prefer the not-too-long, not-too-short ones. I tried the Crystal Ball Frapp and really kinda liked it. 🙂

  5. I’m sick of the cold too, haha. The Lioness skirt is super cute! I may have to snag one one of these days (to welcome the hopefully to-be-warming-up weather?! Someday!?!?).

    I definitely schedule my workout days based on my work schedule too! I wish I could be a little more consistent! :[
