Running in Pants

Been trying to decide what kit I should wear for my ironman in switzerland, me and my brother have been looking at pictures and we have both decided it would be pretty funny if I run and cycle in those triathlon pants.

But practically I'm not sure if they are any good, has anyone used them? Do you get chaffidge?

Thanks

  • Don't............... really, don't!!!
  • do you mean swimming trunk style pants and a crop top??

    if so - nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...............the style police will be after you......


    plus - unless you are built like a beanpole - chaff, chaff, chaff............







    [does my arse look big in this??]
  • Yeah, I thought it'd be pretty comical you know, I'm pretty skinny, think I'm probably cool enough to pull it off!!

    I've run to the swimming pool with speedos on before (covered with ronhills) and they've been ok...
  • "covered with ronhills"

    being the reason the fashion police or the real police did't nick you!

    sorry but they look like mankinis
    (bikinis for men)
  • but then TT - some of the really skinny guys look bad in lycra shorts - you know, the kit is all baggy and hanging loose............eeeeuggghhhhhhhh...........

    if you can't fill it, don't wear it!


    HJ - if you do go for a 2 piece, please wear shorts and not the pants - please........
  • Ah yes there is that FB.

    saying that the powerbar ad with faris al-sultan in alsultan looks like he is off to a certain type of happy bar for male persons.
  • C'mon guys you'll love it, maybe I'll set a new trend, bring back the 80's
  • are you gay by any chance HJ???

    if not - don't wear the pants..........

    if so - make sure they're silver.........
  • I'm secure about my sexuality, my girlfriend will confirm that, I hope.

    Ok so maybe I need to think about the pants things

    So from your experience how many men usually wear pants, I don't want to be the only pratt!
  • good grief



    you'll be condoning 3/4 length tights next
  • Look I just wanna ensure I get an all over tan
  • then wear nothing
  • you'll be condoning 3/4 length tights next

    men or womens?........

  • you will be a prat HJ !


    Taff .... mens!
  • Well the reactions I'm getting are not too far from what I expected. My brother is encouraged by what you are writing meaning he's really pushing for the pants
  • adults will laugh out loud, children will point and snigger..........

    OK - if you do wear 'em - make sure they are comedy ones............if you're going to do it, you might as well milk it..........

    if us fat feckers can get away looking like weebles in our one piece tri-suits I guess I shouldn't complain that much.......
  • FB - All in the name of a bit of banter, if it makes people laugh (be it with me or at me) I will be happy
  • Why don't you send myself and meldy some photo's of yourself in these pants (aka ann summers posing pouch) and we'll tell you if they're acceptable!
  • you can't win with pants, everyone moans if you wear them without tri kit, everyone moans if you wear them underneath. the only decent thing to do is to put them on over the top and go for the super-hero look.
