My everyday go-to running clothes

A few days ago I wrote a post about my favorite shorts for my long runs, but for most of my daily runs (<10 miles), I don't need as much storage space, and for my speedwork I actually prefer to wear shorter shorts because they don't get in the way as much and I just feel faster wearing them.  Here's a photo of what I wore on my run this morning:

I absolutely love the core pieces in lululemon's running line for my daily runs.  I practically live in my Run: Speed Shorts and Run: Swiftly shirts (they come in a short sleeve, a long sleeve, and a tank).  Their Cool Racerbacks are also good for running, but the material (luon) that they're made of is a little heavier than what the Run: Swiftly shirts are made of, so I tend to wear them for shorter runs and for yoga.

The Run: Speed Shorts do have a shorter (2.5") inseam, so because I'm between sizes, I tend to buy the larger size that I'm between to maintain a little more modesty.  I also find that the solid black shorts are a little bigger than the colored and patterned shorts, so they sit lower and tend to not show off quite as much.  They have a zippered pocket in the back and two pockets set in the waist band, which will definitely fit gels or an ID/credit card, but I find it's a little harder to get gels out of the pockets on the Speed Shorts than the shorts I mentioned in my shorts for long runs post, so if I'm going to be using a lot of gels I'll wear different shorts or run with a belt that will hold gels.

The top that I'm wearing in that photo is the Run: Swiflty short sleeve.  I can't even begin to describe how much I love the Swiftly shirts.  The fabric is so lightweight and soft that you barely even feel like you're wearing it and it's great at wicking sweat.  The fabric that lululemon uses to make these shirts is called silverescent and it has little silver fibers woven into it which help fight bacteria from growing on the fabric and making your shirt stinky.  (There's a cute video that lululemon posted to YouTube that explains why this fabric is so awesome, if you're interested.)  These shirts are also seamless so you don't have to worry about seams making your sides itchy, and there are cute little inspirational messages on the inside of the bottom hem of the shirt if you're needing some motivation.  The one thing that's kind of a bummer about the Swiftly shirts is that the fabric does snag somewhat easily, so treat them with care.  I accidentally washed one of my sports bras with a hook and loop closure without putting it in a lingerie bag and one of my Swifly tops got a tiny snag in it.

If you're going to go out and buy lululemon soon, I would caution you about their more brightly colored clothing.  They've been having some problems with dyes on certain colors that they make bleeding when they're washed or when they're worn during exercise.  The silverescent material that the Swiflty shirts are made out of doesn't bleed as much as some of their other shirts, so they seem to be a safer bet than some of the other tops.  If you do fall in love with a top and you worry about the color bleeding, there's a nice discussion about how to wash your clothes to try to minimize bleeding on the Lululemon Addict blog.  I've only had a tiny bit of color come out of my brightly colored Swifty shirts and I was able to take care of that by throwing in a Shout Color Catcher when I washed them for the first few times.  (I use Penguin Sport Wash and cold water, no fabric softener to wash all of my running clothes and air dry.)

Do any of you have really comfy running clothes that you could live in?
