Full Moon Funk

I believe that this things do exist. In my many years of working in Customer Service the crazies always come out before a full moon. Once the full moon is past its fullest point everything goes back to normal.  Did you now that Tuesday at 9:54PM PST time the moon was at its fullest. As Tuesday progressed I felt like an invisible weight was being lifted from my shoulders. I went to run at about 8:15PM and by the time I was done I felt great. It wasn't the best run in the world, but I my hatred for running was melting away.   I decided to look up when exactly the full moon was at its fullest and it was within 30 minutes of me completing my workout.  A little crazy, but true.

Another proof that the crazies come out around a full moon. I ordered two running skirts last week - for running on my treadmill, but also because the make great swim cover ups in the summer. I am have problems with the compression shorts on most skirts. The ones I ordered had have just the briefs, so they will only be worn in public if I wear capri's or other compression shorts under them. The public doesn't need to see my thighs up close.  I asked my husband to take a photo of  me in one of my new skirts. I had gotten ready to workout, but still had to prepare for today so I was in my slippers and sweater....classy I know.

Then I thought I would be strong and try to hold myself up!  I look a bit evil in the I am going to eat your brains out. kind of way and not as 'strong' looking as I was hoping for.

I want to love running skirts, but I haven't found the perfect match for my thighs. Maybe I just need to get over the fact that my thighs will never be super model looking. Standing pigeon toed will never make my legs look skinner as my thighs will still touch. :) Running skirts just don't love me us much as I love them. What a ones sided relationship I have.  I guess the only bonus is I don't give anyone a full moon when I wear running skirt....that would be bad overall.

This morning was spin class. I am addicted to a the remix they play of the Cranberries Zombies. This is the closest version of the song they use. I think this has to be one of the strangest songs that motivates me. Something about the remix just makes me push harder during class.



Do you think the full moon brings out the crazies? My daughter was full moon baby, so what does that say about me. 

Do you have a song that just motivates you to push a little harder in a workout?

  1. I completely believe in the full moon craziness. Ask my family or any of my friends who have known me long enough ... I swear I can feel the full moon coming. The middle night of the full moon, I'm ALWAYS antsy and agitated and can't sleep. I will literally sit up the ENTIRE night and work on my creative writing projects. It's like something "clicks" that night.

  2. My mom is in mental health, and when she was on call for the emergency room she just stayed at the hospital on full moon nights. She was gonna be busy, guaranteed.

    I also love running skirts, and they also hate my thighs. The ones with capris attached win, hands down.

    Zombie is a great running song.

    Do you live inside my head? I totally think you might, after this post.

  3. Ahh! Running skirts kill me, because of my thigh issues, too. I am glad that someone suggested capris...did not even THINK about that option!!! (and also glad that I'm not the only one who can't rock the cute skirts without chafing the insides of my legs!)

  5. where is this running skirt from? I would like to enter the world of running skirts but I am a total virgin and would probably have major chafing issues do you reccommend any? what about just wearing them with your own tights? or do they ride and go all silly?

    1. The one I have on is skirt sports brand that I bought through Sierra Trading Company for $15! I think it would work great with my own capri's under it and plan to try that this weekend.

  6. speaking as a former teacher the full moon brings it out for sure. you can tell when there is a full moon or if the weather has recently taken a big change from warm to cold or visa versa. it's craziness!!

  7. You have some hot looking legs lady. You look great!

    I'm a skirt and dresses person, I wear them a lot but I still haven't bought running skirts and don't feel the need to buy them either. I prefer tights and capris for running.

    I have lots of songs that push me harder, one of them is the Black Eyed Peas Pump it, or Lady Gaga's Born this way and many more.
