My hydra-belt is abusing me.
Does this ever happen to you? If so, have you figured out how to fix it? I bought my hydra-belt when I started training for a marathon last summer. It looks like this:
It's great in theory, because I have recently realized just how much of a difference drinking while I run improves my post-training recovery. However, I swear my belt hates me. It actually scarred my back last year, and when I wore it out for the first time this year on Sunday, it literally tore a strip off me.
I was especially surprised about this because I was wearing 3 layers of technical gear underneath the belt, which I (wrongly) assumed would protect my skin.
I would really appreciate any input you have, so me and my hydra-belt can work on improving our relationship!
How to avoid bleeding during my long runs is only one of the questions I am dealing with this week. I am also still wondering what to do with my life. Another job interview down yesterday. One call I made yesterday morning answered some of my questions...and created others. The calls I've been making today have not led me to any answers...not yet. I've listened to advice from the opposing camps of beggars can't be choosers and all those in favor of taking a leap of faith. There isn't too much time to lose, but I'm taking my time making this decision. After all, I've recently had a few lessons in the art of making the wrong decision, so I want to make sure my next big move really enhances my life. Admittedly, it's pretty hard because I'm so impatient for change.
However, my awesome weekend made it easy to start this week on a high note, despite all the unanswered questions on my mind. Rest day - check. Delicious, fancy dijon chk'n fake meat - check. Plants vs. Zombies fun - check.
I hope your week is also off to a fab start! :)
