Any tight mens running shorts that dont make you look a gimp?

Posted: 12/05/2013 at 13:47

Can anyone recommend some gimp wear suitable for running?  Lycra ball gag? Non-chafing nipple clamps -you know the sort of thing.  If I get a VLM place next I quite fancy getting on the telly. 

Training for a shorter Tri

Wilmslow sprint done. Absolutely loved it - all went very smoothly.  Swim(400m in 10.02) faster than the time I put down, but probably could have gone a bit faster, but reckoned that it probably wouldn't make a huge difference overall, and wanted to keep something in the tank. Smooth transition to the bike-reasonably flat 21km with a couple of sharp climbs but nothing too taxing - 57.51. Did as advised and dropped down a gear or two towards the end, , and felt pretty fresh at the start of the run ( 6.25k). Some mild undulations, but the two footbridges were a bit tough.  

Overall 1.50.05 (unofficial). Loved every minute and will probably sign up for the re- run in September, even though it will be taper time for Chester marathon.

Right, doing my first tri tomorrow (Wilmslow sprint). What mistakes should I try to avoid? Any top tips?

Have a look here: http://caloriesburnedhq.com/calories-burned-running/

I reckon 15 miles a week is burning about 2400 calories (I estimated a 10 min per mile  pace) a week: you might need to increase your mileage. Speed work / intervals can also help.

PMSL DF3 will have a field day.

'Burning' shins?

Agree with becky. 

How to treat:

1. Rest

2. Ice.

3. Stretch your calves out: calf tightness is apparently a very common cause of shin splints.

Wilmslow. I love first events - guaranteed PB. I just get the feeling that it won't be the last.

Any suggestions for what I should be doing in the week before my first sprint Tri?

 

Did a final brick bike/run session today which is probably hillier and tougher than the actual race (Wilmslow). Planning on a couple of light swimming sessions focussing on smooth technique, with a gentle run and gentle bike session through the week.
