windstopper pants

How may son laughed when I told him what I was looking for! Good to know that British toilet humour has survived to the next generation.

What I’m thinking………………..what he’s thinking !

Although we have had a mild winter so far, no frost, no snow: I have done a number of runs in windy weather and some of that wind has had rain attached to it.

When I get home I find that my thighs are bright red and chapped. I get into my lukewarm bath and the skin gets quite thick and oedematous for an hour or so until it settles.  I’m hoping that I might be getting a small effect of ‘cryolipolysis’ – a treatment offered in cosmetic clinics where they freeze your fat away. Apparently it takes 8 weeks for the full effect to be seen – I’ll let you know in February!

I did see the Gore mythos windstopper running tights in sweatshop – but at £110 before Christmas and with child in tow I didn’t even bother trying them on. However after a chilly new years day run and seeing they were reduced to £69 in the on line sale I threw caution to the wind (lots of windy words today) and ordered a pair.

If that doesn’t guarantee better weather I don’t know what will.

Today’s run was a lovely 3 miles in daylight. A bit of sun (which quickly set), no noticeable wind or rain.


About mawil1

Hi my name is julie and I took up running at the age of 46! Hence 'mawil' Middle Aged Woman In Lycra. I did it at first because someone asked me to do a charity run with them. I couldn't run at all, but pride wouldn't let me be seen to be unable to run so I started a walk run programme. I stuck with it and to my surprise I found that I liked it- after a couple of weeks of progress I was hooked! My blog is about my progress in running and how I fit it in with the rest of my life.

    Good luck with Gore fart stopping running tights. If they work I’ll buy my dog a pair. Actually, toilet humour runs the whole age range from 0-99 (in men, of course). Odd that, innit? And Happy New Year!

      The funniest thing as far as I was concerned was that I googled ‘fart stopping pants’ hoping for a cartoon only to find that they exist! A company called shreddies- do feel free to stop by!

    Your post had me laughing so much – I’ve clearly been wearing lycra for too long as you son’s thought hadn’t even occurred to me. I look forward to reading your review of the tights 🙂

  4. Hahahaha! Cryolipolysis! Oh how I wish it were that easy!! I’d be out there in a bathing suit every single day!! Although I think I need a pair of those running pants… might make it just a tad bit more comfortable? Gorgeous pictures! 😀
