Running outdoors can be not so pretty when it’s chilly and you’re sweaty with a running nose. The most obvious thing you can do to prolong your longevity is to learn how much clothing is too much or too little, which can be a task in and of itself. I’ve found the only way to learn is to try a few things, but I personally caution you to err on the side of too little because it’s easy to forget how much you will warm up but keeping cool won’t be a problem. Adjust next time and don’t go out for super long as you learn.
Although I run in cold weather, I’m not a specialist (haven’t really tried many gear options and I don’t run for long distances) and I haven’t been doing it for more than 1 cold season so if you have any tips to share please share!
I admit I only ever wear cotton blend/inexpensive or old clothing. I have never invested in cool weather/moisture-wicking wear which I’m sure could help a ton… Do you have favorites you would suggest?
Cleaned out the garden, planted some seeds, did Turbo Punch, Kick and Jam and did a short run to the post office!
Time to shower and get ready to work on my car, then take my Daddy out for his birthday with the family tonight.
weather for the week I’m in PA …
Had a nice walk with puppy last night on a trail and in town, and tonight is legs.
I’m also washing, waxing and changing my oil in my ‘68 today so that will be fun in this gorgeous weather!
Made some decisions last night for the huge upgrades on the car before our car cruise in May. Stoked!!
