Review: Win Detergent & "Long Run"
I was sent a bottle of WIN DETERGENT to try out and review. Over the summer my running clothes were smelling HORRIBLE so I started to do a hot water wash which seemed to do the trick. The problem is that hot water probably decreases the life of my clothes - so I was excited to try this detergent which is endorsed by some Olympians and claims it gets the embedded sweat out of workout clothes. So I washed all of my nasty smelly clothes from this week with a small capful of this stuff. Couple hours later did the smell test. Literally shoved these clothes in my nose and gave them an intense smell test - every single shirt and pair or shorts or pants. No smell! I'm impressed. I will definitely use this detergent on my running clothes instead of hot water. Good stuff and I was super happy to be able to try it out! You can get it here and Dick's Sporting Goods, also other specialty stores. It is around $6.99/ 21 oz. Try it out!
Pros - need a small amount for a large load, it WORKS!, you feel special using athlete detergent
Cons - Price is quite hefty for a small bottle of it
I was a machine today. Since we were in Florida last weekend, we had to get away all of our christmas stuff, and I also wanted to get the nursery closet organized and take things out of boxes. We didn't have a shower so basically our parents have bought us stuff and mailed us things. I also wanted to run 10 miles. Abby and I were going to go outside but it was a bit chilly so instead decided not to. Over what seemed 3 hours from start to finish I was able to finish 11 miles. It took just over 2 hours, but I took mini breaks between miles. After 2-3 miles in my Asics the bottoms of my calves were aching very badly. I crawled up 2 flights of stairs in pain to get my other shoes and once I switched to my favorite Mizunos it was much better! I still stopped here and there with side stitches and such and did some blog comments, and sending my progress updates to Abby, like a virtual run. Also, I forgot to mention that I found some chocolate mint GU and Bill picked it up for me at REI this week. Yummy stuff! I thought it was a new flavor, but found out it was seasonal. Abby told me about it & I got it on sale! Anyway, got through that...
then was a cleaning machine for hours on end. I feel accomplished but I am exhausted! At least our house is clean and organized! I love throwing things out. Lots of trash today.
