Have been running for many years, always worn lycra & pants!

A new running mate of mine recently asked me if runners wear pants, in addition to their shorts. It got me thinking, do runners wear pants? Is that where I have been going wrong all these years. Could lose vital milliseconds off a 10k, with less weight to carry?

What ya think?

tried it without underwear, but chaffing due to excess motion became a problem on LSR. I need something that hugs to stop motion below the belt. Forget the milliseconds on 10k, not worth raw balls, bluntly.

I believe the medical profession recommend it for gentlemen, especially in hot weather to prevent excessive jangulation.

Strange but when running in lycra always wear pants, but when cycling never wear pants under the shorts.

No you don't KK, not in Mexico at least!

depends on which lycras - some have seams which prevent commando; others are fine..........tri kit is always commando as that's the way it's designed to be worn

It amuses me that Im running past loads of people with no pants on. Im a woman of simple pleasures obviously.

I assume you are referring to wearing lycra shorts.

I never wear them. I just wear "proper" running shorts with the inner bits in them.

Do runners who do wear pants wear technical ones? It's always seemed a bit pointless to me to wear all this wicking gear, and then wear normal pants round one of the sweatiest, chaffiest bits. The liners in my shorts are always breatheable.

To quote my mother, "Never, ever go out the house without clean underwear on - you might be hit by a bus."

I think that answers your question.

I think if I got hit by a bus my underwear wouldnt stay clean for very long anyway ;-)

I must remember not to lend my vaseline to male runners anymore..........

fb - do tri-gear shorts differ an awful lot from cycling shorts with padding? I'm thinking of doing a duathlon and started wondering about my choice of botty-wear. Cheers.

"With or without pants"

Is that what Bono ponders every morning?
