wondering at what point you rest in the cold weather. It was six below zero when I went for a run yesterday and windy. Rather chilly really.
Just wondering if there are any hazards you could think of in very cold temps (except for ice of course)
Cold will consume people's physical....

What are "cold" and "rest"?
I'm yet to experience a temperature that's too cold to run in over the last 2 years or so in the UK, and it was pretty cold last year. I'm a particular fan of hill reps in the snow.
Ice is another matter however, they closed my track last year as it was frozen over . But its usually possible to find somewhere if you take it easy
I've never been bothered by the cold - at least you don't overheat! It's easy to make sure you are warm enough.
My bottom goes numb sometimes, but that's not a problem.
I fell over in the snow a couple of times last winter, but it didn't put me off.
Anyone can run in the summer! It's a sign of the dedicated runner who braves the elements.
It always makes me feel more satisfied after getting my ar$e out of the door when it may be easier to say not today.
If it's really cold, thermal tights or thermal tights over normal tights if super chilly!!! I'm ok with a layer or 2 on the top half and a windproof jacket, a couple of pairs of socks! Gloves, ear cover, and I have vaselined under my eyes if they water too!!!
Yak trax on and off to the trails! Alas no snow this year though just the cold, bring on the snow I say!!!
We'll all look like the Michelin man!!!!
It's breathing the really cold air that hurts me....and my cheeks and nose. Full face balaclava may be the only option....just don't run near any banks
I fill my water bottle with hot boiled water, makes a useful handwarmer......and by the time i get thirsty, it's gone cold.
Funny I think the exact opposite. Cold is good but anyone that can go and and run in anything above about 24C is far braver than me.
I (along with almost 370 other idiots) did the 'Stanbury Splash' fell-race a couple of weeks ago (22nd), & on arrival at the signing-in hut, the posted teperature was 0C, with a 30MPH wind
Later on, upon getting home, that worked out to -6C due to the Wind-Chill.
Quite surprisingly though, there was no ice/snow on the route as it previous years, but damned cold before the start (at one point, I had to sit down to stop my legs shaking - after takign off my leggings)
Some runners were in tights, long socks over them, jackets & even balaclavas!!!
Others were just in vests/shorts! I'll admit I went tof the middle-ground; shorts/long-sleeve t-shirt, club vest, woolly hat.
Put a second layer on top today. Far too warm. Generally I find a second layer is necessary if the canal is frozen, otherwise just shorts and top. However this rule failed me today.
Dynamic warm up is an absolute must for me at anything close to zero or below
Only snow on the footpaths will stop me running. A couple of years ago I felt guilty not running during a period of heavy snow and then heard about a clubmate who did run, slipped badly and broke both legs
