Being judged by my choice of running wear

Probably more ill-advised than rude, Mutts.  Unless you know her well enough to be able to understand her motives.

It may have been that she was inspired by Olympic athletes who wear kit like that for competition.  She may even run at district level and it's what she always wears to run.  Who knows.

Bizzarely, I think I'd find it more uncomfortable watching a youg girl wearing that style of kit if she were back-of-the-pack than if she was really fast, or at a track meet. I guess I'm more judgemental than I thought I was - you can only wear skimpy kit if you are fast. 

Hmm........

 

Talkback: How long should you warm up for before a tough workout?

No way would I warm up for 5 hours for a 100m.........

 

Multisport watches?

Something like the TomTom Multisport might be worth a look.  I don't have one, but have looked at it quite a lot....

www.dcrainmaker.com has lots of info and comparison tools, so worth looking there for specs and recommendations.

Nessie, he's down as a starter on the rio2016 website.  It's on at 1.30am.

I knew he was racing, it's just all the BBC website articles on the 5k only mentioned Mo. 

Fantastic race - and amazing achievement for Mo.  Didn't put a foot wrong.  Butchart did fantastically too - 6th overall and a PB - and he's only been a professional athete since January this year.  One to watch, methinks.

Having been pretty impressed with the BBC coverage on the whole, I'm totally disgusted with them today.

Apparently Mo Farah is running in the 5,000 metres today (early tomorrow our time).  I've searched and searched but no mention since Thursday of Andrew Butchart, who actually qualified faster than Mo (ok, I know it's more of a tactical race than a sprint, so time isn't always a factor, but even so).

Maybe he's not British yet because he hasn't won anything.

Nah, you're ok.  I'd rather watch real sport.

Being judged by my choice of running wear

I think of my running gear in 2 ways too - is it comfortable or likely to chafe, and will I get too warm half way through my run.  I couldn't give a stuff if anyone is offended (although they are unlikly to be offended by a technical race t-shirt and lycra shorts), and perverts will be perverts whatever you choose to wear.

I think you've hit the nail on the head, VDOT - she feels threatened by the fact that Trier looks great in her running kit, and wants to put a stop to it.

Beth, I'm with you on the Beach Volleyball - diving shorts would give much more freedom of movement.

However, if the divers get a little excited when they do a good dive, or win a medal, they can jump into a cold pool.  Not so the beach volleyballers, who may show off more than intended...............

Even on this thread, I don't feel I can give any more details but:

WTF? Hahahahahaha! You made my day.  In fact, my whole week.

Glad you weren't hurt (other than your pride).
