Wondering how low I can go!
Cheap, yes but certainly not cheerful! You are constantly bombarded by sales messages by staff who if they don't sell enough end up on very low wages and it is horribly cramped. If anything happens then they provide nothing; I was diverted to Valencia on a flight to Madrid where we sat for 2.5 hours on the runway and they would not even sell us water let alone provide it. Two weeks after I also found out that they had to request an emergency landing at Valencia because they do not carry sufficient fuel reserves. Cheap flights can't last forever though so you better enjoy them while you can!
ive not had an experience like that i must admit, every flight (i fly to and from Vasteras 3 or 4 times a year for 5 years now) has been on time and uneventful, easy way to avoid the sales..ipod on, headphones up, close your eyes. :P
I've run in -19 / -20 a few times in Austria. The Yaktrax were fantastic and I never had a problem with slipping. However, what do you guys use to avoid your drink freezing up in the bladder & tube? I've tried wrapping it in towels etc to no avail, plus it can get quite heavy lol! Thanks
Nice to see that some of you know about Västerås. Typically, those who does tend to have been here and worked for ABB or came in with Ryanair. You were no exception...
A reccomendation for everyone who is running in sub zero temperatures is to bring an emergency blanket. As the running clothing is too thin for the temperature you can be in extreme danger if you fall and injur yourself. To bring your mobile and/or run in crowded areas is also recommended.
For those of you who are in Sweden, Clas Ohlson have emergency blankets for 29 kronor:
Thanks for the Clas Ohlson emergency blanket link, that is a great idea. I have been running in busy areas just for the reason that I might fall and if in the forest would freeze to death!
Thanks very much for the tips, Steve C - shall definitely give the Nuun a try next time and going to see whether I can get some insulation for my tube from somewhere. Enjoy your running all )
Come next July Ranulph Fiennes will be out in temperatures possibly into the -80Cs if that's any help. Don't know if he's going to be doing any running while he's there.
Okapi you could always splash out on a Camelbak thermal control kit
For those of you who have problems with ice in the bottles of your hydration belt: Wear the belt inside your jacket and tighten the drawstring in the bottom of the jacket.
