Competition update plus VSX Pants review

pants
Update: Not much is happening in my 2015 competition training.  It’s very much the daily grind.  I am feeling better than I was a month ago, but I’m still not fully 100 percent.  I got great news from my eye doc and my cornea is healing.  I’m at about 80 percent now.  We are still on some pretty aggressive treatments and the side effects are yucko.

Good news is that in less than a month, we should be able to taper these which means I’ll be feeling much better.

In case you missed it, I contracted 2 illnesses in my cornea right before my last show.  My immune system was pretty low at that time.

Workouts:  I’ve been training as hard as I can. Some days are great and I’ve gotten a few PRs.  I am taking this winter to work on my form, get some nice muscle and think about my competition season next year.  Totally not stressed right now.  I’m happy with myself right now.

VSX Haul

I’ve been away from Lululemon for a while. I haven’t seen anything on the
uploads that made me excited.  VSX on the other hand is bringing the heat.
The VSX line on the website is full of so many fun pants, I am dying.

I’ve worn VSX for years and they  have been hit and miss. I see that now, they are really working to compete with Lulu.  They have some fantastic sports wear.  The pants I’m wearing in the above pic are the Knockout tight.
This exact pattern is not on the VS website in a Knockout. On the website, this fabric comes in the Ultimate Tight. Color is Oil Spill/Wonderland/black

In the actual store.. I could ge t that fabri in the knockout Knockout tight. . This fabric feels the same to me as my Lulu Wunder Unders in Luxtreme.  These fit great. I’m a size  6 in Lulu. An 8 in real life pants and I rock a medium in the Knockout.  I wore these for leg day and there was no shifting whatsoever.  This pant was $72.50 but I had a $10 off coupon so, “Yea!”

VSX knockout crops

These are the VSX Knockout Capri. They feel like Wunder Unders but
I really liken them to my Inspires: Run Crop.  I love these pants. This length is new to the Knockout. I find that VSX  actual’crops’ are too short for my liking.  This is a length I gravitate towards so I was happy to see this pant in this style.  The color is Pink/ Black Blurred Lines.  They run between $59.50 and $66.50.  The price is definitely right on these. I have
a few pairs plus plain black.  Seriously, there are about 20 different prints on the VS site right now in the VS Sport section!

Oh..I also picked up a pair of the Showtime tight in Green/blurred lines
It was store only.  I like it just ok. I thought it made me look a little chunky butt.

The fabric on these pants varies, but the fit is fantastic.
