Blustery day!!!!

Blustery day!!!!

Whew! I'm just cooling down from a 30 minute run. It is gray and blustery outside with temperight at the freezing mark. Yes, I was on the lookout for ice. I took pride in being the only runner out today. I am learning some things about cold weather running though. 1. I can NEVER leave the house without a tissue. Cold weather makes my nose want to join in the running. 2. I think I will have to wear some kind of face cover. I have discovered that cold weather makes me cough a lot. That said, it was a pretty good run. Now I'm off to enjoy the rest of the day. Cheers!

Grrr...there goes the webpage flipping my photos again.

  • I need tissues all the time but even more in cold weather. Cold air also upsets my lungs. On my last run I was reminded of my running failures in school PE lessons. Not sure how to tackle it yet or if I just need more practice!

  • It can help if you wear a mask or neck gaiter over your face. I just haven't wanted to admit that it's time for that yet. πŸ˜‰

  • Well done for getting out.

    Have you thought about using a buff to protect your face? You can pull it up or shove it down out of the way as your fancy takes you.

    I'll not mention using it as an alternative to a tissue if things get desperate ;)

  • Ah yes - a buff! I hadn't thought of using it as a tissue but now you mention it, I assume it is better than your sleeve.

  • Ha! That's funny Adam. Yes, I have just the thing to wear I think. It's a stretchy neck gaiter. I'm hoping I won't need tissues with that. Otherwise, I will never admit it πŸ˜‰.

  • Upside down photo made me feel a bit woozy :)

    I love a run on a good cold day. In my first ever race goodie bag there was a thin 'snood' type thing - I think it's called a neck gater. It's fab. You can pull it up over your nose when running into a strong cold wind but push it back down when the conditions aren't so severe. I also saw a man wearing his as a light weight hat too.

  • Nice! Yep, I think that's what I will try as well.

  • Wear something over the mouth to try and warm up the cold air going in

  • I will definitely give that a try.
