What's the general concensus here about clean running kit? Persoanlly I don't have a problem if I've been out for half an hour to wear the same sweatshirt again the next day. I'll have a clean t-shirt and socks etc natch but shorts...?... debateable. This running lark does seem to generate a shed load of washing, and I can't see the problem with wearing something again when it's just going to get *more* sweaty and then get washed. Is that skanky to wear things more than once or do you all have pristine kit every time out?

As long as my clothes don't start to make my room smell, I don't care. Ha.

Three sets of kit in rotation per week. 1 set for mornings. Other 2 alternate on evening runs.

Each "set" = 1 pair "Tracksters"/leggings; 1 long-sleeved top; 1 T-shirt.

Shorts and socks are worn for the evening run, dried over-night, worn on the following morning's run, then replaced with clean stuff. ;)

I'll tend to wear the same kit all week too, though if it was to smell bad I'd wash it as and when necessary. I would probably rotate my kit more, but I only have one set of winter kit, so it's a case of either wearing the same kit or being bloody cold!

(admitedly I could run in normal jumpers and joggers, but i'd rather not!)

I don`t mind wearing the same kit a couple of times.

But only if I`m running on my own.

I wear the same running tights but not tops.

I have worn my socks more than once but they dont tend to get sweaty

I wear breathable stuff, so hopefully it does not smell too bad ;)

I have worn same kit twice before, I don't think there is any shame in it and if there is I don't care that much, couldn't go out though if it was smelly but as my running stuff is moisture wicking mostly it isn't too bad :d

I generally use clean, unless something's only been used on a really short run. Mainly because most of my runs are fairly long, I guess, but the prospect of re-using it just does not appeal :(

It's just a smiley from the internet. So for example if I wanted to put the soup dragon in my post I get the address of it (URL) and then put it in my post with
after the url.
