Yoga Pants Protest Parade ….

Workout notes: so-so; my “treadmill tempo” went better than last week but not up to snuff: 11:03 mile 1, 10 min. at 6.7, 10 min. at 6.8, then 5 minutes at 6.9 before I gave into it and walked a bit; 38:10 for 4 miles (27:07 for 3). Hey, 25 minutes isn’t a bad tempo run, but I just was not into pain today. Then at 40 minuted (4.1 miles) I got off and walked 8 laps in the inner lane (15:30) to cool down.

Next week, I’ll do better.

Yoga pants: You know the drill: some old curmudgeon wrote a letter to the editor expressing his opinion about yoga pants. OF COURSE, someone took offense and there was a yoga pants parade to “protest”. Photos:

I suppose I should laud the yoga pants wearing women for their …well, wearing yoga pants. 🙂 Seriously, check out the article I linked to. Sometimes I think that there is a certain “status” one attains (in some circles) by being “offended”. 🙂

Yes, you have the right to wear what you want (within reason; e. g. you can’t walk into a bank with your face covered) but you don’t have the right to have your attire accepted by other people.
