I know this has nothing to do with running but i'm looking for a bit of advice from any heating engineers, green deal assessors etc.
My home is a 4-bed detached which has never had any cavity wall insulation and is using a 20 year old boiler which, if the internet is to be believed, is rated G for energy efficiency.
I'm currently paying over £100 per month in fuel bills and thats just for using the bare minimum times my timer uses (1.5 hours per day for heating and water.)
Would it still be worthwhile going down the route of having cavity wall insulation installed and a new, more efficient boiler or would i end up paying more due to having to pay back the costs of these installations from my energy bills?
I read this thread then looked at my roof when i got home, thinking that i must have some good loft insulation as the roof was completly covered in snow........then i realised that it's most likely because the house is cold as it's a pain in the ar*e to heat due to no cavity wall insulation .....at least the loft should be toasty!
Ok so i went for a run this morning in my new tights and the verdict is.....very good! They kept my legs warm but didn't overheat them (which normally happens when i wear anything longer than shorts!) they didn't ride up my legs and didn't feel too restrictive so i would recommend them if you're looking for a cheap pair as these do the job well.
I ordered the karrimor tights from sports direct which came through today. I've not run in them yet so can't report on that yet but in terms of leg length they fit fine! They're not too tight so shouldn't restrict much when running. I did get size XXL but i do have a 38-40 inch waist and these fit fine there too! They do have a drawstring waist so if you have to get a bigger size you can always tie this up. I was looking for a cheap pair and these were only ??10.99 + ??3.99 delivery. Once i've gone for a run in them i'll let you know how they are.
