Manatee Running Tight Recommendations

  • Brooks
  • Sugoi SubZero
  • Asiscs
  • under armor compression shorts with calf sleeves
  • Brooks Utopia
  • Under Armour Cold Gear
  • Reebok
  • EMS

I've eliminated the SubZero and Utopia because I live in North Carolina and generally don't need anything quite that heavy on a regular bases (knock wood).  I've been running in CW-X Stabilyx compression tights/capris and Brooks Infiniti capris.  UA is out due to no drawstring at the waist.

I ended up with CW-X Expert tights from Swim Outlet.  They were on clearance.

Haddon Hall

Nice sunny morning run! Plan called for 2 miles at half marathon pace mid run.


Manatees, what is your favorite winter running tight?  I'm in the market for a new pair.

  • I have one comment for Brooks tights.  Any particular model?

Ten-Ten

Chilly Saturday morning ride. 34 at the start which meant the red Gore jacket and windstopper gloves. Dressing was interesting to coordinate with the brick run afterward.

Downtown

I did an in-the-kitchen transition rather than my normal driveway one so that I could at least not put on cold running shoes. Yeah, I'm that much of a a wimp. Seriously, I thought that I might sweat under the cycling jacket and wanted to be able to change shirts of necessary (it was not necessary). Cycling jacket, helmet and shoes off. Tie the waist on the tights (so they didn't fall down), running vest, hat and shoes on and I was out the door (temp up to 38!).

Nothing to see here.

We saw the new Hunger Games movie.  I liked it a lot better than the first one.  Kudos to the new director!

My aunt and uncle are in town this week.  They are staying with my parents.  My aunt has several appearances that will wind up her book tour (a signing and luncheon in Chapel Hill, a signing in Raleigh and then a demo in Chapel Hill on Friday).  My aunt and uncle met each other in New York when they both worked for the Times but my uncle is originally from Rock Hill, SC.  Walter had to make an unexpected trip to Rock Hill but he and my dad were planning to go to an exhibit at the museum today.  I told my dad that I would go with him since Walter could not make it and my dad had been looking forward to it.  That's a long winded way of saying that I took the day off work.  

I had an optional swim on the schedule so my initial plan was to go to masters in the morning, hang around and then go to the exhibit with my dad this afternoon and then run tonight.  Cold rain was in the forecast for tonight, though, so I scrapped that plan and went to masters, come home and went running (beat the rain) and now I have the rest of the day for lounging and the museum.

 Dad driving a Porsche -- or something like that!
