Hi! Thread title says it, really - I did C25k over the summer and graduated at the end of August. I've been running 5k four times a week since then, and I absolutely love doing it - but I've been feeling the cold more recently and I know it's only going to get worse.
Right now I only have a pair of ordinary 3/4 length tights and two Dri-fit vests. I've been wearing them with a thin cotton/merino blend hoody and an ordinary cotton longsleeved top for my early morning and late evening runs, because I don't have any other stuff, and it's been getting heavy and horrible, and freezing in the wind! I don't have access to a gym or treadmill, and I'm really worried that I'll end up missing runs due to bad weather, until eventually it's been weeks and I'm not running at all any more. So I'd really like a few good pieces of winter kit to help me get out of the door!
I have the tights sorted - Mizuno - and am now trying to work out what to go for on top. I think I'd like a long-sleeved base layer (I've been looking at these, which seem really comfy and dry, but I'm not sure they'd be warm enough store.nike.com/gb/en_gb/pd/... with a technical t-shirt on top or vest top underneath when it's really cold.
Then I'd like some kind of soft windproof jacket or hoody - I really like the look of this, but am not sure it would be windproof (http://www.sportsshoes.com/product/asi4660/asics-jersey-women's-running-hoodie-~-aw15/), so maybe this (http://www.sportsshoes.com/product/asi3791/asics-winter-women's-jacket/#description)? Or something else entirely? I'd like at least one of the layers to have something to cover my hands, as I think gloves will annoy me too much.
Any help would be really, really welcome. Thank you very much!
