Middle East to UK for Xmas

So happy to be going back to family and friends for Xmas but dreading the cold weather running. I’ve even signed up for my first ever 5k in a parkrun on the 30th as I’m on Week 8 right now. I’m going to need to buy a load of warm running gear as I only have shorts, running shoes, and vests at the moment. My biggest concern is the cold icy air. My lungs just aren’t used to it. Any advice welcomed.

Thank you

Well done... I think long trousers, buff, gloves and hat if you have been used to the heat. Start with your buff over your mouth gangster stylie as that will warm up the air so your lungs won't freak out.
