I used to laugh at people who exercised in compression/running pants.
Then I began running.
And I started chafing.
Or getting too cold.
Then too hot.
Then some more chafing. (REALLY. SO BOTHERSOME!)
And my legs would feel swollen.
And I understood!
Running tights help all of these problems, so I decided to get a pair of them, in the capri length.
Night and day, people!
This summer I wore them some, and shorts some. I overheat easily and quickly, so I wore shorts whenever possible.
Now it's cold again, even on my porch where the treadmill is. Since I had just the one pair of compression capris, (and since they are now kinda baggy! YAY!) I bought a pair of pants as well.
ASIDE: Thank you, Wal-Mart, for your workout clothing that does not require a second mortgage!
Yes, I am a little bit self-conscious in them, as it is impossible to hide any bulge or jiggle.
BUT, the more I work out, the less of a problem this will be! Right?!!
This wicking fabric top is my FAVE. I'm so glad I bought two of them, as they are PERFECT for exercising in cooler weather. I sweat a lot (read: like a man), so the wicking fabric is really helpful. Nothing worse than a soaking wet cotton T-shirt chafing your skin for an hour!
Pants: Wal-Mart, $12.94
Top: Wal-Mart, maybe $8?
Shoes: Brooks Ghost 6
The girls like the treadmill and have taken turns exercising on it.
Makes me happy that they enjoy it!
Do you wear special running/workout gear?
