Better to run in tracksuit or shorts and tee ??

#1
Hi,

I passed pre-selection today, the thing is i only got 10:47 on my 1.5 run wearing shorts and 1 tee shirt, this is quite dissapointing to me as its not around my usual 9:00 mark, however i feel this may have been because i was not wearing much therefore was cold. Anyway just earlier i done a 3 mile run in three T-shirts and a tracksuit and finished in 23 minutes.

So in your experience is it better to wear shorts and tee or wrap up warm ??

I don't think it really matters what you wear when you run. In ta 1b training we always wore the issue pt shorts, the issue green/brown t shirt, issue wooly black socks and issue silver shadow trainers. I quess the regulars will be wearing the same throughout basic so run in t shirt and shorts?

Man up.

It shouldn't make a difference what you're wearing. If it's a PFT you're doing, there should be a warm-up run beforehand anyway.

If you're not sweating buckets at the end, regardless of the temperature, you're not trying hard enough!

Jesus lad. I'd be more worried about things like map reading, bcd, saa and anything else needing intelligence reading that comment. Sorry,but christ!

Do it drunk, then you won't feel the cold, or the pain..
Did that on a fam, i added about 45s to my time.

Anyway while training i just wear a thermoskin t-shirt and shorts. The cold is only a problem for about 5minutes for most people, and surely you get warm up time beforehand? Generally it doesn't affect my running times at all.
The only issues i have with the cold are that sometimes the cold air can burn your lungs haha.
