So far I have been running in an old pair of swimming shorts and crappy old decorating T-Shirt, so thought I may try to improve my running wardrobe with a few new items, particularly with winter fast approaching.
While in the local Sweatshop yesterday, the very helpful lady was massively singing the praises of the Skins range of clothing.
Now, for those who don't know, this stuff is tight and I mean SERIOUSLY TIGHT, so all of you bits and bobs/lumps and bumps are going to be on show whether you like it or not. Despite my strongly expressed reservations and initial thoughts that this stuff must be aimed at the uber-fit 20 something gym-bunnies, the lady assured me that it was brilliant stuff and those who are more self conscious may just chose to wear a baggy pair of shorts to cover the parts that you may not want the neighbours (et al) seeing.
Now I am a 40 something YO bloke, not hugely overweight but not 'skinny' either, so if this stuff is what it says it is then I would seriously think about splashing some cash and scaring the neighbours/public by giving it a try.
Does anyone have any of their gear and if so, is it all it is cracked up to be?
Or is it all just expensive marketing BS?
I am not sure if it makes any difference, but I am principally looking for something to wear over the colder months while out running approx 5k's outside.
I am assured this stuff is great for both warm and cold weather(?!?) so it may cover all seasons?
