Tonight I went for a run in my itty bitty shorts for the first time. I have been saving them for those runs in the woods in Estonia where no one will see me but today it was still warm at 8pm and I thought ‘what the heck’, put them on and headed out the door.
The good news is that I felt like I was wearing nothing.
The bad news is that I felt like I was wearing nothing.
After 3kms it was no longer ‘fun’ that I hardly had anything on – the rubbing of my inner thighs got annoying. 7.5kms was quite enough in the end, any more and my thighs would have been in pain.
Verdict: If you’re a slender hourglass body type with a thigh gap, you probably love running in shorts like that. If you’re a straight up and down sausage body type like me – your inner thighs will not love them.
Oh well. I’m a little bit disappointed that I’m not one of those cool runner chicks who can pull off these kinds of shorts after all. I think in my head I was.
But now I know that I’m better off in my black Nike shorts that are only about 3 inches longer than these but nice and tight so nothing rubs.
