Tuesday's Thoughts....... on Smells

Since we're having a spell of summer-like weather here in the mitten state, I'm starting to notice more smells...

Okay, we all know that the workout laundry can be somewhat daunting at times, so to cut a corner, I will where my running shorts to the gym for a strength training session. Who sweats that much in the gym???? I should be able to run in them in the evening without worry, right? OMG, the smell! Good thing I was running solo........


I'm not sure when I purchased my New Balance Minimus but I love them! I use them for my gym workouts, as well as short mileage on the track or treadmill. These puppies are saving my sock usage too. There in lies the problem, no sock to absorb the foot sweat.... Now, I honestly believe foot sweat is probably high on the list of bad odors that the body emits. These things are starting to reek and I can't leave them in my gym bag anymore.

So, has there ever been a time when you knew you stanked?

I think it's true what they say about old-person smell...............

Peace

Drymax low cut socks. I'm testing them now and they keep your feet dry and non-smelly.

I'm so grossed out by this post....but, I was talking with some TNT alum about how our running clothes stink even after they've been washed and some of the clothes really should be burned. :) Yeay for sweat!

And here I thought we wore socks to prevent chafing. Sniff. Sniff.

Oh man, I'd never wear gym clothes to run--but vice versa would be worse for sure.

I always wear socks. Foot odor is NASTY!

LOVE my Minimus(es) - trying to get up to a half marathon in them (once I hit 10 miles my achilles squawks). Hmm, I wear socks with mine ... am I not supposed to?
