Lucky pants…


Just a quick post on a little observation I had this morning before I headed out for a run. I spent about 10 minutes rummaging through my ” kit box” under the bed( note. U M has TWO of these) Even though I had at least 5 pairs of running legging to chose from I couldn’t find the ones I wanted… you know the ones that make you go fasterπŸ™‚

I’ve spoken to a few people about this and it’s definitely not just me…a lot of us save that special pair of trainers/top/leggings for race day or even that day when we aren’t feeling particularly lively. The ultimate placebo maybe?

Anyhoo…it made me smile when I thought back to the dating days when one would root out their ” lucky pants” before a special date. These days the ” lucky running leggings” have replaced them…not that the need for lucky pants is there anymore( I’m digging myself a hole here) Β So things have changed I guess and I wouldn’t have it any other way…

So the run was had, not a particularly fast one but it’s done…I’ll take the credit for that one myself. Hope you are all well and being kind to yourselves, until the next one. S x

      Neither of the pants pictured are mine!! It was my husband who pointed out people may think they were mine, it never even occurred to me haha.Love those leggings though, from a company called lotus leggings, keeping meaning to get a pair.

        You should definitely get some. Hubs is right. In my experience, spouses are generally right all the time.

    I need a new pair of fast leggings!!! However the ones with prints that are cute I can never run in for some reason–but I do wear them to work cause yeah, I am that girl who wears leggings everywhere.

    Dude, I still have lucky pants! They’re even Lucky Brand jeans… Ya just gotta have those cues so the other knows what’s up.

    God knows, I walk into the house wearing my “Cult” tee-shirt (the band) and my lucky jeans, I don’t have to say a word. My wife’s eyes light up instantly.

    They’re definitely not lucky pants for a run! I dread to think where they’d end up after a few miles ;D I like the leggings too, they’re much nicer than my predictable black ones x
