Bloody freezing wind

Afternoon everyone I've just been out to try & do better than yesterday morning but still couldn't get my breathing right with the cold wind so had to walk a bit less than minute but then I settled down but only did 25 mins anyway today I suppose we all have good days & bad πŸ˜”I just get mad with myself cause I've ran continually for 38 mins last week but couldn't do it today or yesterday sorry about the moaning πŸ˜‚

I'm in exactly the same boat , I went sat. Morning couldn't get to 5k and today I did 5k but God knows what's happened to my pace I'm 3 mins per mile slower . Let's blame weather . Hope things pick up for you

Moan away! :) I couldn't breathe in the wind today either. The cold makes everything much harder work too. Some days are good, some not, the more we do the less it matters about the bad runs, we learn to think oh well, next time will be better. I did 50 mins the other week, but I couldn't do a second over 35 the other day. Next time will be better :)

I only know that having felt exactly the same as you and eventually realising through time that every day is different. A bad day isn't a sign that it's all going down the pan... it's just a bad day. Took me a while though and much aggravation! :)

Did you try the running buff trick with the buff over your face like an old fashioned bandit look?

It ain't sexy but it works for me.

Or if you did and that didn't work, then blimey all I can say is well done for even trying...

Must, must, must buy a bandit buff!πŸ˜€ Maybe it would work as a mobile bird hide as well??

38 mins was a long run so don't be disappointed you didn't do that again. You are still out there running and in horrid weather so well done πŸ‘

Love all these posts on here saying why did I have such a bad run today. In good weather I can run for x minutes but today I feel so bad I couldn't manage it in sub zero temperature and 50 mile an hour winds, with an earthquake in the middle. What am I doing wrong?
