Shorts over tights

Is wearing shorts over tights cool or not cool? For both men and women and all seasons. Feedback welcome.

adidas adizero mana - life after?

Posted: 28/03/2015 at 20:16


Have been a faithful adidas adizero mana trainer wearer for the past few years as I haven't wanted to stray away when I know these type suit me.  However, they seem to be thin on the ground these days and no new models on the  horizon.  I am currently looking to replace my trainers.

I've been looking at the adidas adizero boost 2 with interest and wonder if these would be a good transition or if anybody knows if there is a new version of mana coming out?

Thank you

Achilles tenderness but not painful

Posted: 16/02/2015 at 09:06

Hi noticed my right heel felt tight/tender last week and on pinching my Achilles it was tender.  I ran again a further times and it's not got worse but not better.  Also noticed that when flexing the ankle up and down a creaky feeling is there.  What's the general consensus on running with this mild niggle or to rest up until it clears altogether - and if so how long is this likely to typically take?


Thank you

Thank you.  The tights are thick but i just don't like showing my bum even when wearing jeans so that's why i feel more comfortable covering up.

Hi I'm looking for recommendations for long tops to cover my bum whilst running. I'm 5ft 10 and wear men's xl tshirts over my running tights and underneath a jacket but would prefer the top to be even longer. Just feel self conscious and want to feel at ease whilst running. I see men wearing shorts over their running tights and wonder if this would be an option but a skirt would look better. Anyway thought I'd open up the question to the masses and hope I'm not the only one feeling this way.

Mental illness and running

I read this post with interest. Whilst I enjoy keeping fit in general it's running which makes me feel like I'm actually alive. I'm now injured and I feel so depressed. Going to book into a physio tomorrow but I just feel like when I talk about this to anybody who isn't on the same wavelength then I feel like I'm an alien and they really don't understand. Just get the typical "don't be silly" "rest will do you good anyway" "you don't have anything to be depressed about" and so on. so now I just keep quiet and try to deal with these episodes alone. I think I do need to try and get something else in my life so that when I do get injured I don't feel totally lost and angry and in despair.

Anyway. I just wanted to say hi.
