You're a lot bigger than I am; how do you wear these damn things?

I hate style.

I wear UnderArmour, and then I'll throw a t-shirt on over it, and then I wear the Alpha Female board shorts they sell on fightergirls.net, or I'll wear shorts with spandex underneath them.

Am I the only person that thinks it's mildly disturbing that you thought about Leo while trying on shorts?

I too have this problem with board shorts though, if they fit in the waist I'm practically immobile, forget about swimming. If they are loose on my legs then waist is huge.

Do they have good foam rollers at S.A.?

Yeah. It just takes a tad longer to look through them. I have about 5 pairs now and only one is really tight (I set all my pr's in them - the white and blue ones). The rest fit great, are not tight at all and I can squat clean and squat snatch in them no problem.

The rest fit fine but I did spend a bunch of time trying them on.
I shop @ Ross for those shorts though.
No shorts in the world are worth 50 bucks.
For 20 bucks - that's kind of okay.

I do have a few Reaboks and Russel Athletics ones that I bought for 5-10 bucks and that's what I usually workout in.

No. That's the part I mentioned was upsetting.

Thanks for the tip, Leo. I don't like stores, dressing rooms, or the people who use these things. I feel a little weird talking about this.

Sorry for the hijack, Yael. The last thing I bought at SA was an oar for my canoe. But yes, they do have foam rollers last time I looked. An extra pair of bag gloves never hurts, either.

I beg to differ. These girl board shorts are definitely worth the $50.

I only have one pair though.

They have foam rollers? I didn't see any...

Why are the Timex Ironman watches special and sell for $48?

They did have kettlebells, too.

I love my Timex Ironman, I think mine was $65 on base. Well worth it though, I love the interval timer option.
