Alternative to shorts

This is looking like it could be a great Summer as after it must be two years of suffering from PF and a Calf injury the last couple of weeks I have been managing to get out again for s few short runs.Unless you have been there you really cannot appreciate how great it feels.

To enable me to do it I have been supporting my calf with a support and now Summer is arriving rather than wearing the trackies I have been wearing I will be wearing shorts.

But rather than doing that I was wondering whether after all these years if someone has invented an alternative long leg trouser that keeps you cool enough to wear in the Summer.

Cannot say  that I am aware of anything but do you know different.

no idea but have you thought about running in calf guards or compression socks.......they could support the lower half and with shorts on you wouldn't get too hot....

Thanks seren nos its funny that you should ask that because would you believe that having just discovered calf guards ( I know I can be on the slow side at times ) I have just ordered some and that is one of the reasons I have asked the question.

Mind you if there is no alternative to shorts then blow it as long as they are easing my calf problems then I shall wear them and blow what I look like.

Who is looking at me anyway.

Thanks Marc. S I was thinking about them but I wonder if they will be too thick to wear in the Summer.

nope, they are pretty breezy tbh, i mean, if its really hot they might be a tad warm, but if you keep your upper body cool enough with a vest they will be fine i think, they are certainly a lot thinner than tracksuit bottoms,
