Hi all, it's been ages since I've been on the forum but I have been steadily doing faster 5 kms, though haven't broken the 30 min mark yet. Turns out I quite like running in the cold and it's a good excuse to buy more running colothes. I've got a couple of questions which are definitely related to the cold and damp British weather.
Q1 It was a horrible and drizzly day this morning while I was running and since I've got back my face feels hot and tender, like it's been pressure washed. As I go running just after I get up I don't bother applying any moisturiser to my face. Can anyone recommend a good one, but not horrendously expensive, that'll keep the weather from my face and protect it?
Q2 Does anyone have good tips for cleaning running shoes? I don't mean rinsing the mud off, I do that, but what about the cloth parts? Mine should have lovely florescent yellow toes but they're stained dirty black at the front. I'm not expecting or wanting a good-as-new look but a little brighter would be good.
