VERY good sports bra - even if (like me) you are not well endowed.
Running tights (try Sweaty Betty or Pro-Direct for a good range). Pick the ones with highest elastane content so they hold their shape. I go for 3/4 length (just below knee) but yoiu could opt for short or full length.
Light coloured top (t shirt just now/long sleeved for winter). Look for coolmax tops as they wick the sweat away and stop you getting a spotty back.
Sports sunglasses. Stop you getting wrinkles and cover up a small part of your red sweaty face!
Good socks - thousand mile or twinskin.
For running in the winter you will need a lighweight running jacket - ideally fluorescent.
Trainers - go to a good running shop and get fitted.
IPOD Nano with arm strap to hold (if you can't run without music like me!)
arh yes noone is looking, but isnt it nice to feel good about what you are wearing? aswell as good selfesteem, confidence blah blah blah feeling good in what you are wearing is all part of the bigger picture too if yiou the the op is irellivant to you dont post
but the post was about what to wear running i enjoy running and am about to take it up regularly(in prep for hopefully a 1/2 or full marathon) and was just asking advice on what one would normally wear to run as iv always ran in joggers and t-shirt and found uncomfortable so i just wondered what other people were wearing sorry if the other posts were rude not having a good day wasnt at all sure were to post the op in he first place
Sorry MM for being snotty.I just mean that there is a limit to what you can wear when running, irrespective of how fashion conscious you are. Anyway, good luck with it all, and I hope you look delightful!
Nike has some flattering running trousers. I wear them with a very good sports bra (thanks boobydoo), a running vest with more support, and a plain vest. If it's cold I have some slinky long-sleeved running tops made of some synthetic fabric. i wear a cotton head band to keep back my shorter layers and clip my hair.
i always overheat in a jacket - maybe a fleece and light gloves when it is VERY cold.
i definitely get more motivated when i look good too!
