Is everyone still in shorts and t-shirts? I am as You Sharp warm up when your out there but you see people running with trousers and long sleeve tops now! I think I’d catch fire with all that clothing on! I went to the Nike shop the other day looking at running gear and it’s all about the long sleeves and strides
Running attire for the winter months? - Couch to 5K
I'm running ball, as I wear long leggings, longsleeve base layer, longsleeve second layer, buff, headband, hoodie, and gloves. And during my yesterday's warm-up walk I was still cold. I was ok for most of the run, only last few minutes was kind of hot, kind of. Yes, I was sweating, but I loved that I wasn't feeling cold.
I wear ankle length running leggings and running tshirt with a lightweight jacket, I don’t like shorts so I probably wouldn’t wear shorts even in the warmer weather
Haven't run in cold weather before, so can never be sure what to wear. Get hot so quickly, but need something warm for warm up walk. Trying the thin layers approach, but there's only so much you can tie round your waist ...! And unless there are zips, I just get in a tangle with headphones etc, trying to get it over my head - esp while running (rubbish multi-tasker). Then there's the whole head issue if/when it starts raining. It's all a voyage of discovery at the moment, but expect it will sort itself out once it gets properly cold. At least legs aren't a problem so far - just-below-knee-length leggings still doing fine.
No-one wants to see me in shorts so I started off with yoga pants in August but, now that I don't mind looking a bit more professional, I'm now in running leggings. Have layered my tops including a thin jacket I can remove and tie around waist. I also will be going for the Buff to keep my dreadlocks under control and my ears warm. As a glasses wearer, I also have a delightful green plastic visor (Tiger 99p) stuffed into my jacket pocket for if it starts raining. Sort of thing tennis players used to wear in the 1980s - and truly great for embarrassing my family with. Added to this I then have a small crossover bag to hold my keys and phone. To add to the glamorous appearance, I took a radio with me on my last run which I stuffed into my cleavage. Just as well it was getting dark!
