Unfortunately hubby was away today - managed to get my v tight sports bra on but as I'm not houdini couldn't fasten the second hook and eye strap which makes it like a straight jacket and really holds. Set off as usual get to the first 8 min run and I'm jigging rather than jogging! The arm straps kept wanting to slide down. I slowed and paused the podcast. Then thought 💭 I'm not giving up! Resumed and just took Jo's advice to take it steady ..... and it worked.!!! It wasn't as planned but the second 8 mins I kept going and didn't stop. I feel a real sense of achievement. Next time I will wear my other bra which is easier to fit! 🏃🏼♀️😁🏃🏼♀️🏃🏼♀️
W5R2 Sports bra malfunction! : Unfortunately... - Couch to 5K
Catherinel14secondtimearound This really made me giggle! Well done for carrying on and not letting that bra let you down!
Ahh. I like this idea! I do the top ones first but after I have put it on, then the bottom hooks after stretching the strap out and changing arms several times! It's exhausting and my fitbit never mentions those calories I burned! There were other models of sports bra that completely defeated me, but thankfully I'm happy with the ShockAbsorber
I've seen Rig's chest (I have his 'DILF' photo with the caption "This is why you must run today" as my Pc's screen saver) and I'm certain that the 'Sports Bra' episode will exclusively feature his semi-naked torso, attractively lit, maybe with longer-range shots of him in a field scything, wrestling bears and other manly pursuits.
Wow, Victoria's Secret do one that zips up the front. May have to try it! victoriassecret.com/vs-spor...
Aww, well done Catherine for sticking at it. 👍
Oh I know the 'bra' feeling haha, I try to picture the clasp at the top as if it's in front if me when I'm trying to get it to click. My face mannerisms include squinting, put of breath, I probably look a bit like Benny Hill when he pulls his funny face. My arms are virtually bent right back trying to do it and I get an almighty sweat on before I've started, lol 😂😂
But that's brill news, I hope I can jog for that long too x
Well done for your persistence 😀Putting the damned things on is a workout in itself then of course having to get them off when hot and sweaty is another story!
I have got 2 zip up front ones from George at
Asda - they were £8 each so I was a bit sceptical but they are as good as my other 'over the head' ones. 👍🏼
The only way I can get in to and out of my sports bra is by stepping in to and out of it! Learnt the hard way - post run getting out of my kit for a shower - door bell went with a signed for delivery item which I needed to have that day - sports bra tangled around shoulders ,head and arms - I didn't make it to the door and spent the next 5/10 minutes getting the bra over my head.
I have been reading all your comments and giggling, but I get into and out of my ShockAbsorber with relative ease. I put it on - back to front, fasten it up round my waist (both top and bottom hooks), then turn it around, hoik it up, stuff the relevant portions of my anatomy into their confinement and voila! no need for contortions
Brilliant funny funny post! which made me giggle bespecially the jigging rather than jogging part ha! 😂😂
