    I've recently started running again after about 10 years off.

    My trousers were starting to get a bit too snug shall we say.

    I'm up to about 15k on a Saturday morning, but I've been struggling to keep it up as winter closes in and it get colder and rains more here in London.

    Welcome!

    Invest in some breathable rain jacket, don't worry about shoes they will get wet but stay warm with wool socks.

    I know...

    My girlfriend just got me a load of winter running gear for Christmas, the leggings look a bit scary though.

    I'll hit the park tomorrow!

    Leggings are amazing. I understood why girls wear yoga pants all the time after putting a pair on. :lol:

    Well, no homo right? :lol:
    They're stupidly comfortable to run and lift in. That's the only use I have for them.

    Had a nice month off to reset the body fix up some minor injuries, even have the pot belly to prove it LOL!!

    I have a 50 miler coming in April and also have to train for some long bike rides and some short course bike races. Planing to have a great year with some new bike stuff and only key trail races.

    Had a run this morning and its amazing how out of shape I feel with just a few weeks off, Im sure it will come back fast but for now I just feel fat lol!!
