Started W1 when it was still t-shirts and shorts weather. When it got colder I wore just tight fitting base layer leggings and top with the shorts. Look a sight but who cares. It keeps me warm but not too warm. Only challenge is getting the sweat-soaked top off when I get back. Seems to be OK for temps in between. Forgot to mention they are Merino wool.
What 3 score & 10 wears in the cold: Started W... - Couch to 5K
I wear a long sleeved running top, with a zip up jacket on top, that I can now unzip and tie around my waist without slowing down.
It's not foolproof, I accidentally reset my stopwatch to zero once, when I pulled the jacket off. I have no idea how long I ran for that day!
I'm thinking of getting a merino top for when it gets really cold, but I haven't needed to yet. Although I'm asking Santa for some gloves.
As an unemployed runner on a non-existent budget, I’m running in jeggings, t-shirt, fleece and my old trainers. It must be more comfortable in high tech kit but it makes no difference to your desire to succeed. So to anyone else in the same boat: you can still do this without fancy gear. Just remember to change your sweaty t-shirt as soon as you get in if you don’t want a chill !
