Got back into the UK a couple of weeks ago and the good news is that I’ve been keeping up with the running whilst out in Spain and the big news that I managed to finally crack my 10k out there, but the heat just killed me off from going any further than an hour, even at 5am it was still very very warm.
And I’ve been looking forward to getting back out running since now I’m back home & was out this morning at 5am but what a difference 15degrees makes it's not exactly shorts and vest weather any more, it was only 3degrees out there!!
After thawing out ! I decided that if I’m going to be serious about running through the winter I need the proper gear. Ideally I want to get upto 15k before Christmas, or atleast 90 minutes. which is going to mean cold weather running.
So I’ve just hotfooted it back from the running shop with an armful of goodies including this fairly decent outer shell top plus proper base layers, although I held off on getting the fully gloves and hat just yet, it is only October afterall.
So other than gear what other tips do you think I need for winter running?
