Running in the cold is no fun, y’all.
I know this first hand: yesterday morning it must have been in the mid-50s during our run!
Seriously though, in parts of the world where cold weather is actually a thing, this time of the year can be a tough one for some runners.
Sure, you’ve got the die hards/crazies that say to just get your ass out the door and go run no matter how cold it is. And if you’re still cold after running for 10 minutes, just run faster to generate enough heat.
If you’re one of those people, this post probably isn’t for you.
Look, cold is one of those relative things where what is too cold to run for one person is absolutely perfect weather for another.
(And please don’t confuse this with “freezing”. The freezing point is not relative, it’s scientific! And if I hear one more Floridian talk about it being “freezing” outside when the temperature is 52°F I might snap! Freezing is below 32° (or 0° if you’re worldly) and that’s it!)
Rant over, I think. (No promises though) Read more
