Hi everyone. Seeing the posts about running gear from Decathlon I went to my local branch today hoping to get a few tops and maybe a running jacket. I have some lovely Nike & Adidas tops in my "keep fit" drawer but sadly they were bought when I was a lot younger and lighter. I won't chuck them out though as they are still in good nick and I aim to get back into them some day. Anyway, when I got to the shop I was quite disappointed. I looked at the women's running section and saw a nice pink rain-jacket with hood but even in Extra Large I could not zip it up. I am a size 18 in regular clothes (having once been size 22 but on the other hand having once been size 10 but hey ho!) and was a bit miffed that their biggest female size was too tight. The same went for another long-sleeved top - fitted it where it touched and made me look like a couple of ferrets were trying to escape. There was stuff in the men's section but it was all grey and black and did not appeal.
Anyway, week 2 run 1 tomorrow - once I put the holes in the bin liner I'll be well away
