What Do I Wear When I Go Running?

What Do I Wear When I Go Running?

When I started running, I pulled on an old pair of joggers and a baggy t-shirt then picked up my fairly well-worn Reeboks and set off for the first session of the Couch To 5K group.  


Because I was wearing "my own clothes" I didn't look or feel the part. Also, when I first started looking for fitness clothes, it was a bit of a minefield - I wasn't sure what was best to buy. However, once I'd bought a proper pair of running shoes and specific garb that I would only use for running I felt much more invested in the whole activity.  Over the past few months I have bought a few more items of running clothes but I've ensured that they fit me properly and are comfy. I've also bought a new pair of running shoes recently which are slightly lighter and more fitted around my feet.

As for the rest of it... have a look at my video where I show you what I actually wear. None of it was expensive (everything, apart from my trainers, is from Sports Direct and Primark) but it feels GOOD to pull on that 'uniform' and get in a proper mind-set to do something that is normally so alien to me.
