30 days of yoga: Day 2 - new kit

Well, that went well; in fact, I think you could say I nailed it.

*flexes muscles, feels awesome*

As part of my 30 days of yoga I obviously had to go and buy a load of new kit because quite frankly there was no way I'd be able to see it through with just the two pairs of shorts I've been using so far. So, the other week I bought a few new pairs of shorts, and today I wore one of these new pairs for the first time.

They're actually running shorts, and as a result they're very light and breezy. Don't get excited, they're not transparent or anything, but it does sort of feel like you're not really wearing anything, which made me do a double take at one point. It's the closest I expect I'll come to naked yoga, which is probably for the best. Anyway, they were very nice, although not very absorbent when you're trying to wipe sweat off your hands. Still, the pros more than outweigh the cons.

Also nice is the new towel I bought from Tesco for the bargain price of £3. While it doesn't have an awesome picture of Batman on it, it more than makes up for it by being really fluffy, which was very nice when we got to the floor series. I almost wrapped myself in it, despite the fact that by about halfway through the class it had pretty much doubled in weight after absorbing a considerable amount of my manly sweat.

Anyway, two down, 28 to go.

Still no photographic evidence. I'm not sure I believe you. Tee-heee!

I think there is a brand of pants called no pants or something like that. Is that what you bought or are you still swooshing it up?

Keep on going with your 30 day challenge! You can do it!

They sell clothes at Walmart that are made with a very breathable fabric specifically for working out. Color coordinated, too, with a pocket build in for your Ipad or MP3. Ooo! I have a purple tank top and short set and a melon-colored tank with matching sweatpants.

Cyberpete - Believe me - it's true! And yeah, I bought a selection of Nike, Puma, and Adidas shorts. Not heard of no pants - are you having me on?

Tara - You're right - I think I can!! Do you mean a built-in pocket for an iPod? A built-in pocket for an iPad would be MASSIVE!

Inexplicable Device - Stop groping me with your psychic vibes!

*snorts* Yeah, I meant a space for an I*pod*. Trying to picture an outfit that would make space for an Ipad. :D
