I used to love Ron Hill tracksters - stretchy, but not tights, with stirrups under the feet. Sadly, I am just outside their size range - they go up to 40-42" and I need a size bigger. I have tried a few competitors (all of whom are also a bit cheaper) and they are even smaller. One actually labelled their products 2xl and as far as I can work out they are 36-38" waist!
One of the reasons for pushing myself to run more was to lose weight. I asked this same question on a running forum and the reply I got was 'just hang in there as your weight will soon come off. Well it isn't. Our local surgery is fantastic and they are encouraging me a lot. I went for a monthly weigh in and I have added 2kg since starting c25k - that's 4 weeks. The nurse reckons that my leg muscles (always quite substantial) are firming up and the weight gain there is more than anything I'm losing in fat. Not too sure after only a month or so of renewed effort, myself, but...
My old stretched tracksters are now falling apart and I desperately need some replacements.
So, does anyone know of a source of genuinely large sized men's running attire? I really don't like baggy and I can't cope with shorts (all that chafing!).
I tried triathlon suit makers and they promised the earth, charged it, and what arrived was around a 40" waist. I looked up weightlifting suppliers but they all seem to be short. I explored Highland Games kit but they seem to rely on normal stuff. I even tried looking up Sumo wrestlers kit but I couldn't understand the writing on the site and Google translate wasn't much help.
Any ideas, please?
