I love this pic stolen from social media.
to hide from hubby, they are like the a guiding light in the hall way. Running kit is easier to get through the door, due to those male hormones that make men blind the minute you put clothes on!
For at least 5 years I have worn running capris. I own one pair of full length tights but don’t like wearing them. I can’t decide if they are two small or too big, and that depends on how I am feeling about life. Either they are too big and that is why they fall down, or there is too much flesh contained within fighting to get out, causing them to slip southward. Probably the latter as the label says Small!
Anyway, whilst running through brambles, knee-deep mud and puddles, tights are a must. Fortunately Runners World recently listed their Top Gear of 2014, in that list were these.
Sounds good but what of the price are they sewn with gold thread, made by Holister or have secret magic powers. No? Time to GOOGLE then and google I did, getting them for the much better price of £34.
It took me a while to put them on due to the tape on the inside this prevents them from just slipping on, you have to gather them up much like you would when putting on normal tights. Once on they felt good and they stood up well to the road test on Saturday. Very comfy and kept my flesh under control! All good.
I wish they had a bigger pocket to slip my phone in to, but the fit was good and the tape must have helped the muscles as little soreness the next day. Not sure why there is a power button on my bottom though and am still trying to work out how it gets activated! Note to self, undo zips on ankles before taking down or they will not come off! (Memories of being stuck in a Top Shop changing room circa 1983 in Oxford Circus unable to remove a pair of skinny jeans past my ankles, came flooding back)
Overall though if you are in need, and have short legs I would recommend.
Exercise for today – 6 miles with running club tonight with Madam
