Having started my plodding last May, the shock of the arrival of autumn this weekend has forced me to think about running in the cold. According to the adverts for the running T-shirt and running 'jersey' that I bought early on, this combination is good for cold weather. I can't say it was inadequate on Friday, when there was only a keen wind, but I don't think I would have fancied them coping with the very cold conditions today. Fortunately, I ached enough from yesterday's run to avoid the parkrun and didn't have to put them to the test. So what should the aged male plodder be equipped with for the wintry weather to come (or not, depending on the newspaper you read)?
