my chest is supported… but cold.
my usual mid-week grind includes a trip to the gym during my lunch break (i’ve never understood the need for an entire hour just to eat). my gym bag totes around in the car with me, staying in the trunk during the day.
during winter months, it never fails. i always forget how cold it can be. and how cold it makes all my gym clothes prior to changing into them.
now, i can take a chilly t-shirt. and i can even take a cold pair of pants.
but my sports bra – it’s quite uncomfortable to put on a frosty bra. it’s always the same, too. the shock of the cold usually makes some type of ‘ugh’ noise escape as i exhale. just after i loudly inhale with quite a shock.
why, however, should i be shocked about this? it happens to me almost every day. and nearly every single winter.
i never learn. i always say that i’ll just bring my gym bag with me and leave it under my desk. but i never do.
i’m lazy that way. yes, that’s right. i do cardio 4-5 days a week. strength train about twice a week. and yoga about 4 times a week. on my rest day, which usually is sunday, i try to go for a hike. or go snowboarding or snowshoeing. i like to go for long walks. i rarely take the elevator (in fact, i can’t remember the last time i took an elevator).
seeing as i am this active, you would probably think of me as the least lazy person you know.
and yet.. bringing that gym bag back with me to my desk every morning and then back to the trunk of my car (and i have a hatchback for cryin’ out loud), is just too much an inconvenience for me.
i suppose i rather suffer the very supportive, yet very chilly breast coverage.
