The Lululemon Upload is here!

How are you doing in your social isolation? I think some regions are calling it shelter in place. We are on our 8th week and this past week I’ve just been feeling really drained. We’ve celebrated three birthdays in Isolation and they’ve gone well considering.

We’re settled into a pretty good rhythm of work from home/school, exercise, and virtual get-togethers. Our days have regular patterns finally. Thank goodness for this months Lululemon Strava Challenge for creating space for physical activity besides just running. Although I’m mostly running during the challenge it’s nice to be able to include long family walks or bike rides. All is going well but I’m really longing for two things especially this week. I’m longing for regular human contact from society, and I’m longing for alone time at home. Is that weird? What a strange contradiction. I think I just need a break from this strange social construct. The effort of it is making me feel really drained.

Hopefully you guys are doing well. Let me know in the comment show you’ve settled in to social isolation so far.

The Lululemon Strava Challenge has been really great and has gotten me back into running. Running for fun and release, not running for marathon training goals. Very clever of Lululemon because my online shopping focus has been on run related items. I’m on the lookout for new running shoes. I am currently using my old Nike Pegasus which I’ve worn for two half marathons so they are due to be phased out. I’ve been having some knee pain so I know it’s definitely time.

What do you guys wear for running? Any recommendations for what I should try? I’m going to book a private try-on session with a local running store but I’d like to go in with a few things I want to try so that I can minimize the amount of time I take up.

I am so happy to see Carnation Red. I love this color! I had seen it several weeks ago in the Perfectly Oversized Crew but by the time I noticed it the color was sold out completely.

The Perfectly Oversized Crew has some fantastic reviews online. Have any of you purchased it? I am thinking of maybe getting it in white to indigo dye it shibori style. I posted some pictures on Instagram the other day from a tie-dye project I did with my kids. That was the consolation ‘birthday party’ for my daughter but we had so much fun and dyed a ton of stuff. My youngest now has a big wardrobe of tie-dyed clothes she’s in love with. I got a little kit of true indigo textile dye from a small local artisanal shop and I want to make something special with it. The Perfectly Oversized Crew may be just the thing once I’ve practiced on a few test fabrics.

Hotty Hot Short High-Rise Long Online Only 4″

The Hotty Hot Short High-Rise Long and the Track That Short are my all-time favourite Lululemon run shorts. If you have curvy butt and thighs, or petite curvy proportions and the usual short-shorts don’t work for you, try these. They are fantastic! They look proportionally right on me, and they are a really comfortable length on me for running to prevent thigh friction. I’m really surprised they used this particular model to showcase these on the website since they overwhelm her and don’t show how great these look on curvy petite proportions.

  1. I like my social isolation days, but I’m somewhat of a hermit. My daughter and her family are certainly not happy that I keep delaying seeing them in person. My husband and I are going for long walks twice a day, and I exercise for an hour in the morning. In spite of all this, I’m getting quite fluffy. Not happy.
    Re: Perfectly Oversized Crew. I loved the shape and the coziness of it in white when trying it on. Then I took it off and noticed a lot of visible white fluff all over my clothing. Sadly, I’m not going to order this now in any colour.
    It looks like there’s very few new designs in the uploads, they are playing it safe with the old designs in new colours. Since it’s still cold here in Ontario, I have been ordering lots of sweaters, wraps and pullovers from WMTM. The speed of delivery is fantastic, one or two days!

  2. Hi Cristina – I run 3 times a week. 2 of those I do a 5k and then I do a 10k on Sunday. Now that it’s nice I wear either the Fast and Free is the old version of the Speed tights. In the summer I wear the old Speed shorts. My favourite running tops are their swiftly (depending on weather I wear sleeveless, long sleeve or short sleeves). The only bra I can run in due to my annoying size is Panache Spirts bra.

    I’m ordering the carnation red Goal Smasher jacket from this upload.

    Hope you are well. I am also tired of this quarantine. But I do agree it needs to stay in place for longer

  3. I’ bought the over sized hoodie in the gorgeous red color a few drops back. I love only red and lulu never has that much of red, and bonus my twin boys play ice hockey and red is their color and I Spend more than Half my life in freezing rinks. I got my normal size which was perfect bc I could not have gone bigger it’s huge to begin with but I’m so confused by the sleeves they are so short! Maybe I have extremely long arms ugh I didn’t think I did. For what I paid I want to love it not be like ooo look a quarter of my arms aren’t covered 😑
