So I've been running now for a few years and have stuck to compression shorts/running tights (under a pair of shorts - no budgie smuggling allowed!!) and then just a running tshirt (long/short sleeved technical top)..........
I've always looked at running in trackies or with a jacket/windbreaker as an extra weight/inconvenience but more and more people I see now in the winter are wearing them....
Whats the pros/cons for running with added layers of this kind?
I did think the same thing - wasnt sure if there was either:
a - Some benifit to getting hotter, therefore sweating more and burning more calories (weight-loss)
b - A sense of commardery if you do happen to become mixed up in a JD looting spree
Thanks for putting my mind at ease that I'm better off keeping to what I know.....
By trackies do you mean tracksuit bottoms or Ron Hill tracksters?
Shorts for faster runs regardless of the weather, tracksters for steady and slow runs on cold days. Hardly know I'm wearing them. Not chavvy but great for that 1970s PE teacher chic, grow your sideburns to match.
