RE: Cold wintery running: how to make it bareable survivable?
Everything ooper says.
I actually like winter running. Get enough varieties of layers and learn how to use them and you find it's actually quite easy to stay comfortable in almost all winter conditions.
Be flexible with your training. No matter the weather you can usually get easy miles in. So move workouts around as needed. I also like to do more hills, fartlek, longer tempos that aren't as fast (around MP or so). I find that all works better in the winter than really fast stuff or workouts where I need to hit a certain pace.
I'll also throw out a plug for yaktrax. They clip on over your shoes and work remarkably well in mixed snow/ice conditions.
