The challenge

The Session Short is built for speed. With a shell weight of 124 GSM, the Session Short has been stripped down to the essentials to ensure ultra lightness for endurance training. To get the most out of athletes like Kyle, we built these shorts to get out of the way and let the hard work do the talking. To put that promise to the test, we built a brutal workout for Kyle to complete in our Session Shorts.

WARMUP:

• 2-3 miles at an easy pace

MAIN SET 1:

• 8 x 1km (0.62 mi) at 20 seconds faster than goal half marathon pace with 2 minutes of recovery jogging between intervals.

• 10 minutes of smooth form based endurance running to focus on form and recover.

MAIN SET 2:

• 3 x 1 Mile at goal half marathon pace with 60 seconds recovery jogging between intervals.

TRANSITION:

• 10 minutes of smooth form based endurance running to commute from track to hill.

MAIN SET 3:

• 8 x .25mile hill repeats at max effort with jogging down hill recovery in between intervals.

The Verdict

SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT

The Session Shorts have become my straight-out-of-the-laundry short. Everyone has their item that they wear first when their clean clothes come back. These are it for me. When I’m wearing them, it’s like I’m running naked with just the right amount of support for the jewels. The stretch, the range of motion — these things are no joke. Plus, they’re stupid comfortable. They’re so good, they make me look forward to running.
