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 and work well with my best compression socks.
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.
The same advice applies to cycling. Wearing the right clothing is really important especially when it comes to jackets - take a look at the Bovem Life mens cycling jersey for example. I've also been experimenting with nutrition and have been recommended https://healthy-chews.com/
