What running tights?
I run very early, (5am) & I just wouldnt warm up this time of year in shorts. I use the Karrimor ones, about £12 from Sports Direct.Posted 6 years ago
The Kalenji kit from Decathlon is very good. They do a thin lycra glove & skull cap that are good. Even as low as -8, as long as I’m covered its ok once your moving.
I gotta say, whenever i see anyone out riding or running in shorts at this time of year i cant help but think ‘tosser’. You just look like someone desperate to prove how hard you are.
I can assure you, the one thing I do not look like in shorts in -2, is hard.
Anyway. Nice attitude.Posted 6 years agonoseminebMember
Both pairs of my tights were unwashed in the bottom of washing machine with 15 min to go before the club run started, so i went in shorts last night. I got some ribbing but generally it wasnt to cold once we got going, But it was only an hour around town and we were shifting along!Posted 6 years ago
Both pairs are addidas climacool.
Tried skins once but they felt a bit baggy even going down to small when they recommend medium for my size. The addidas were a 1/3 of the price so i bought them and some compression socks to wear underneath them.stilltortoiseSubscriber
My knees would seize up running in shorts at this time of year! Aldi’s finest for me. Very impressed. I’ve not worn Tracksters since the “old days” of mountain biking: Tracksters, big fleecy jumper, walking boots/scruffy trainers and not a care for what I looked like 😆Posted 6 years agodirtygirlonabikeMember
Emsz, have you tried sports specific underwear? I’ve got pants from sweaty betty that don’t have any seams which i use for running. They don’t ride up at all but i do have a bum which probably helps.
I used to wear shorts to run in all the time, even in the snow. Then I discovered lyrca longs and love them to bits. I’m actually quite disappointed when it gets too hot for my 3/4s.Posted 6 years ago
