Looking for ideas to defeat the winter ice cold snow and wind...running only.
How do you do it?
How do you make it work for you?
Tips for cold weather running?
Hats and gloves are a must, duh. Keep an under shirt tucked in, pair of long johns are amazing too for keeping body warmth. Getting out the door is the hardest part. Take that first mile or 2 easy, let your body warm up, by 5k-4 miles in, the temps are irrelevant. If the conditions are too tough, aka very windy on top of the cold, don't force any intervals or tempos, just get the time on feet, live to see another day. Tis the season!
