Yes you Jay66UK ๐Ÿคฃ I canโ€™t have a man out-shopping me so shot off to sports direct sale haha. I got the belt whilst it was in the sale, looking to future and longer runs. (She says hopefully) The ยฃ9.99 one only has a small pocket which my phone wouldnโ€™t fit in so for a few quid more got this with bags of room.

Not as swanky as Adidas but theyโ€™ll do me ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚

You are a bad influence haha. Spirograph? The things I drew pretty patterns with when I was little or some fancy something Iโ€™ve never heard of?

Itโ€™s another thread. Someone has ended up buying one because of me. Look at my profile/replies and youโ€™ll see.

I apologise unreservedly to bank and credit card balances everywhere ๐Ÿคฃ

Careful, don't let FlickM3 know..... she has a bit of a running kit addiction. We'll get her in shorts yet!

FlickM3
FlickM3Graduate in reply to SaskAlliecat

I don't know what you mean! (quickly hides google search)

you will NOT get me in shorts at my age! It was a leap of faith to wear capris ;)

SaskAlliecat
SaskAlliecatGraduate in reply to FlickM3

You don't give yourself enough credit. Show those legs off lady! You're a Runner. You do have some wonderful tights from Tikiboo though. It would be a shame to not wear them. I'm sure your collection will continue to grow ๐Ÿ˜‰

FlickM3
FlickM3Graduate in reply to SaskAlliecat

oh, you mean wear the leggings UNDER the shorts ;) I can do that :) My legs are a good shape, but I've got thread veins now, which is really annoying and they make me self conscious.

SaskAlliecat
SaskAlliecatGraduate in reply to FlickM3

You know that is not what I meant ๐Ÿ˜‰. But if you wear a cape with it, you could be Super FlickM3 ๐Ÿ˜‚

If I can... you can!

Or.. as my husband said last night.... "if you are not able to run again ( positive or what) at least we have a photo of you with both feet in the air and in shorts"!!!

FlickM3
FlickM3Graduate in reply to Oldfloss

I reserve judgement on that one, Floss ;) you are, after all, younger than me. i would have got my pins out at your age :)

SandieF
SandieFGraduate in reply to FlickM3

Oi! Iโ€™m 58. But really donโ€™t care. I just want to be cool (and not in the โ€˜down with the kidsโ€™ sort of cool haha). Get some, stay cool and enjoy ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜

FlickM3
FlickM3Graduate in reply to SandieF

I'm 71. Trust me, it all looks different by them. but actually the capris are fine, cool enough. At 59 I was still being whistled at in the street by men in their 20s, and began a romantic new relationship, coming home at dawn with my knickers in my pocket, to a disgruntled dog who'd been left all night.

SandieF
SandieFGraduate in reply to FlickM3

You should be soooo proud of that and that you are running. Seriously proud!!

Mostly genetic, plus being active and vegan and a lazy couch potato, except when I'm walking the dogs or running - ;)

Which Tikiboo capris did you get Flick? I like the unicorn rainbow ones ๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ˜‚

FlickM3
FlickM3Graduate in reply to BethMay

I only got one pair, the space feather ones, but they were tight in the calf so I gave them to my daughter. But I have three pairs of Sturdy by Design ones (despite the name, they do all sizes down to xtra small): wild Africa, aurora and comic book. I love the Tikiboo unicorn ones! I have a black Tikiboo running jacket, which i love, and the butterfly and the nova leggings.

All these names are a mystery to me. All I know are brands, Adidas, Reebok etc. Sounds like I'm missing out...

Shorts sisters ๐Ÿ‘ญ haha

I found the outer shorts a bit baggy. Only worn them once at 5am so not many people around! โ˜บ๏ธ

SandieF
SandieFGraduate in reply to Ripcurlrana71

I was more worried about chafing so loved the โ€˜inner shortsโ€™ Baggyness I can cope with ๐Ÿ˜‚

No chaffing or airing of anything you donโ€™t want airing in public!! ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ

Ooooh love the belt SandieF ๐Ÿ˜Š

Let's clear something up, please, once and for all. What Jay66UK does is not shopping. It is single-minded goal-orientated purchasing. That is what all men do.

Shopping is what girls do.

Shopping comprises wandering around for hours, fingering things in shops, stopping for a light lunch of quinoa and coconut water and possibly actually buying something. But not necessarily.

Shopping and What Men Do are completely different things and must never, ever, be confused.

Fabulous450
Fabulous450Graduate in reply to sallenson

Mmm...I think Jay may have been doing a lot of wandering around or does it not count if itโ€™s on-line?

Jay do you eat Quinoi? Itโ€™s very nice! ๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ

Jay66UK
Jay66UKGraduate in reply to Fabulous450

Iโ€™m afraid when it comes to shopping I am, as mentioned elsewhere here today, in touch with my feminine side.

Sorry, sallenson. I hang my head in shame for letting the side down.

Fabulous450
Fabulous450Graduate in reply to Jay66UK

Yaay, we love you Jay! โค๏ธโค๏ธ

Sallenson....๐Ÿ˜›

sallenson
sallensonGraduate in reply to Fabulous450

That's a good point. There may be a flaw in my otherwise impeccable and logical argument. Jay will have to explain where he touches a lot of things up on-line before slapping his card down...

I have mixed memories of eating nothing but quinoa in Peru many many years ago. It was not trendy then People here hadn't even heard of it, let alone got accustomed to mispronoucing it...

Jay66UK

Canโ€™t post a photo here but I have a screenshot of my tooing and froing over ordering the vest and cap. Ordered. Cancelled. Twice. Then ordered a third time.
