Please tell me how you get thorugh the winter and still run!
It's so so cold outside and my good girl four training runs a week have stopped. Doing one or two and it's cold and dark and there's cake and hot chocolate inside but I'm turning into jelly!
How do you get thourgh the winter?
Once you start running, your body gets warm!
Wrap up and then peel the layers away when running.
-20 with wind chill is my record.............
You just have to do it.
Once you're out and warmed up it's fine, but it is where those that do do and those that don't don't.
You will feel better for it (I think!)
I just keep going because I feel worse if I don't and the countryside is beautiful in winter.
I've changed my runs a bit do a bit of waring up inside the house and when I open the door run like hell until I'm warm. It's the dark that really get me the trails a run have now lighting and it's not safe (falling over because you can't see and hurting yourself). I hate the dark! I'll just put my running kit on and try running around the park!
I've got a holiday booked in Jan so warm weather training!
balls of steel
Not is this weather!!!!!!!!!
Stop being so soft
My wife, a complete novice, went out jogging with me at 7pm last night.
If she can - you can
Mind you she is as hard as nails.....
I've just done a hilly 6k. I'll just make sure i'll do that 3 more time this week! Yes Muffin Girl gloves and layers are the key!
It doesn't bother me yet. 10 minutes in and I am warm and toasty!!
I suppose the only thing with winter is being prepared to fork out an extra couple quid to get some decent gear to run in so the cold doesn't feel as bad
Ha - I have all but completely given up trying to run before work mornings! I am definitely a nocturnal human and would FAR rather run when I get home at night.
Apart from over weekends. Then running in the later morning is acceptable!
I have to admit that I wore a pair of my mother in law's gloves for my long run yesterday, -thats the last time she'll leave items of clothing behind. Hands stayed toasty warm though. Underwear my own I must stress...
My motivation for running comes from the relief in knowing that I'm not gasping along in the midday sun chasing a pb, sweat in my eyes, gagging for a cold beer during an August race. Cold crisp air is pretty refreshing then, legs seem to tick-over pretty happily.
