With school back in session, it seems as though there are college students wearing Nike shorts with t-shirts, and many more women wearing their workout clothes out and about. Grechen has spoken about her dislike of this many times before. I agree, Grechen! Before I go on and on about why workout clothes are only for working out, I have to admit that I have done this a handful of times. If I am in NEED of something to make my breakfast, I will pop into a grocery store on the way home from bootcamp. And, once I actually went into a restaurant in my workout clothes. I had just finished a half-marathon and if I didn’t get fries and a dark beer immediately, iwasgoingtopersishonthespot. Seriously. One would think that I could be satisified with a casual restaurant, but no, I
wanted NEEDED fries from this certain restaurant. So we went there. In my workout clothes. Gross.
Besides these handful of times, I really try to not wear workout clothes around town, and you will see women and many college students wearing their workout clothes ALL day. Here is why I disagree with this:
1. It is gross. I don’t know about you, but I pour buckets when I workout, and running around in that is gross. Plus, not sure if you have heard, but we are in our hottest summer ever in Austin, so if you are working out outside, you are probably sweating even more. Ew.
2. For me, I have the potential to run into clients all over town and no one wants clothing advice from the girl wearing workout clothes all around town.
3. Is wearing workout clothes easier than throwing on a dress and sandals? Or jeans and a top?
4. I don’t know about you, but my workout shorts are shorter than a normal pair of shorts, and I don’t want to be around town in shorts that short. And, if I am wearing yoga pants, they are tighter than a pair of pants I would normally wear, and I don’t want to be in tight pants running errands.
Rant over. Do you wear your workout clothes out and about? Does this bother you?
