Well, it was torrential rain all night and still raining when I was up and ready for the off. Don't get me wrong. I really don't mind running in the rain but I do have a couple of minor complaints. My 'waterproof' jacket is just not waterproof at all it seems. It does keep me VERY warm though so it least it does prevent wind chill but when I got home and took it off i discovered that my top was dripping almost as much as my trousers! And the trousers.... well, what can I say! Old jogging bottoms that stretch with the weight of the water until I'm standing on them and get so sodden that I almost feel like I'm running with weights and the only thing keeping them up is the very tightly knotted drawstring! Needless to say I came in looking like a drowned rat but happy
Any tips on trousers? Leggings/tights/tracksters. What's the difference. And ideally I'd like something with a drawstring and a pocket (small is ok). Don't want to spend a fortune as I'm still (slowly) losing weight but I have been getting totally confuddled with what's available out there.
