I LOVE running in this weather!! Had the bestest 5km run today, shaved 1 min off my time
But none of my non-running friends seem to agree that it being colder is so great. Pfft .
Anybody else with me?
yes, i go along with that -
i love having my hat and gloves on and really striding out, especially after dark
running in the dark makes you run faster anyway !!
Yay for faster times
Although I think the weather heard me & took it to heart: it's only gone and started snowing here!! Not sure I quite fancy a run in the snow?!?!
yes yes YES
16-20C?!?! I roast at that temperate! Clearly you're not working hard enough Paul
Don't Hippos come from hot sunny Africa?!
Yargh, we've had about 2" of snow now. The weather's got abit carried away.
I did my 5k PB (19 mins, 32 seconds) in around 17/18 degrees C. Lovely!
I always get my highest mileage in during the summer months... plenty of time down at the beach running along the seafront.
Yes winter running is lovely.
Summer running is horrible.
Winter running! Right with you there.....don't go quite so red faced!
The heat of summer just leaves me feeling URGHH!!!!
Def. faster run times at this time of year, only started running seriously about a year ago.
I love the cold but i love the rain too!
Yes, I'm with you. I love cold, crisp weather and struggle in any sort of heat.
In fact I thought this morning was the ideal time to start on my new "teach yourself to run in the mornings" resolution. Okay, it was 8am and not 6am, those of us that are afflicted by being crap and slothful in the mornings have to start somewhere. The clear, cold air and the crispy bits of frost on the pavement were definitely motivating. I like running in the dark too... It's all good
Owwww. The torture we put ourselves through.
I may like the cold but I have to admit OJO that I like my nice warm bed a lot more in the mornings. I've been saying for years that I'll start running "in the mornings" yet I've never yet managed a pre-9am run. Ooops.
Started running in August so have only run in the heat (well sort of we did not have much of a summer). However, went running at the weekend in the rain and ran the furthest I had run 5.5 miles in 1 hour and today I decided to attempt a very steep hill. I live in Kent so have been running hills since I began. I then ran another two miles, again up hill. The weather was perfect. Cold, crisp with a slight breeze. Felt really good. I have relapsing/remitting multiple sclerosis, so the heat always affects me. Looking forward to the winter!! Wendy
I love the cold, can't wait until it snows for that crunchiness (but not the slush afterwards)
I've fallen out with cyclists though, they seem to like either trying to ram me or blind me with badly angled lights.
