Cold Weather Running

The past two days we have had our first experiences with cold weather here this winter with the temperature hitting close to -25 with the windchill. For me this is not yet too cold to run outside although it is close. Had it been any colder I may have opted for a treadmill or an extra day of rest.

Living where I do this type of weather is a reality for a few months a year. As a result if I want to continue running year-round running in this type of weather is a necessity. Since I brought the proper clothing and enough layers the cold really did not impact my runs the last two nights although I did realize that I do need a pair of warmer gloves to wear when it gets this cold.

Here is a shot of me when I got home.

  1. Great look! Last two days were pretty chilly that’s for sure. But I did manage to get out both. Looking forward to today’s run as it will be a little less extreme.

    My coping mechanism: I grow a beard over the winter months to try and keep my chin, lips and cheeks a little covered while outside.

  2. Way to get out there. No reason to not run in the cold. You never know what a race day might bring!

  3. The pathways along both sides of the canal sucked today. With the temp increase, the hard packed snow of yesterday has changed to a soft mushy snow that gives way when you push off each step.
