Does anyone else find it harder to breathe while running in cold weather? I went out for a run this morning after about a month of rest due to injury and i was rubbish.

Ye, the quality of my runs have seriously decreased since the cold weather kicked in, it's just getting used to it i think.

Cold air is more dense than warm air, but its only 1% per 3C, so its unlikely to make a noticeable difference.

I find I'm fine running in the cold, but I cough for ages when I go from the cold back into the warm after running.

If you have a scarf (or one of those things bikers use to keep em warm under their helmets), try pulling it up over your mouth and nose. It should stop the cold air from hitting your lungs so hard, and hopefully stop your chest from getting tight/wheezy.

Balaclava?

I agree though I find it a lot harder to run in the cold too.

Sounds like a good idea to wrap something around your neck/chest when running, will have to try it tomorrow.

I love running in the cold. Much more comfortable than running in heat in the summer months.
