One other thing, what do you wear on your legs while running? I've used Altura leggings but they wear out between the legs really fast (where you legs rub together at the top). I have some De Marchi Contour Bib Tights but I'm reluctant to try them with running incase they wear out too (and they have a trirrup on the foot which I don't like running on).

For hands I have a pair of bright yellow Ronhill gloves like THESE that I wear under my fingerless cycle gloves. That does the trick for when it's cold. When it's really cold I use my motorcycle gloves that let nothing through.

Must say, my De Marchi kit worked very well on Sunday. It was cold and extremely wet and I felt fine, not too hot and not cold.

Probikekit do a prorace windtex glove for about 15 and these are brilliant . I really suffer from the cold in my hands but have never had any cold hands whilst wearing these even when out for 4 hours in freezing conditions on the bike

Lusso do a great windtex top for about 50 and I cant recommend that enough as it is fleece lines too so rarely need to wear additional layers underneath, I have a triuk one but that isnt lined and is colder than the lusso (and more expensive) . Giordana do windtex tights which are available from probikekit for about 20 (depending on offers at time) and Gore do a range which are both very effective at keeping the body toaty over winter

Yeah, don't overlook the humble M&S. Thats why they're struggling - because I associate it with my parents clothes in the 80s. They worked had to shift that image.

If you are into home stuff, check them out. They have opened an M&S Home in Kingston - its very competitive on price and design.

But some of their boxers are #@?#.

I used to have a pair of Nike gloves which were lovely to run with. But I left them on the train going to Watford Half earlier this year. Mad
