Its been rather cold in merseyside for a while now , not freezing but cold if you know what i mean , my runnig was good and i could do about 5.6 miles in 37 minutes and 3 miles in about 20 minutes and i get faster every week but when ive been running in this weather my muscles go very tight and my legs are less flexable and today i had to stop after about 4.8 miles. I run in shorts and t-shirts so thats obviosly not going to make me any warmer but i do warm up and stretch for 15 minutes before i go running but when i run in the cold im just overall slower. Would running in a tracksuit help me and help me run as at the same speed i normaly run at ? or is there anything i can buy in jjb that will worm my body up or something *text deleted*? The reason im worried so much is *text deleted* theres a very good chance my prmc will be in the winter

Get yourself some joggers and jumper....

I sometimes leave my house with a jumper, start running so i'm not cold, and then when i've fully warmed up and get too hot, i just pull the jumper off and ditch it in a bush and then go and get it back later haha.

Works for me :D

Anyone got a pair of DPM trousers they run in?
As I run in either shorts or joggers,
and I was wondering if it would make much of a difference if I got used to running in trousers like you will at PRMC and RT?

I've never ran in shorts, never. Though I have decent circulation so never a problem with running in the cold. Though a warm up and stretch before you start is a must. If it is feeling tight and difficult then you need to warm up and stretch. Do a pulse raiser, like jogging on the spot for a bit, some star jumps, then stretch your leg muscles.

Usually I can go out freezing then end up sweating my balls off. Though I like to run on a winter morning, when you get that sort of cold fresh air, feels good in the lungs.

Edit: Oh yeah, there is something you can use called deep heat that athletes use to warm up and keep warm. You just apply it to the muscles and you can really feel it warm up, my brother used it when he had football matches on winter nights in shorts and t shirt. Be very careful how much you apply. Put on too much and you can get proper burning sensations and it won't go away even with a bath!

Living in Canada, I know about running in shin high snow and worse. Always bundle up when you can. A sudden change of cold can shock the body in a very negative way.

Never bear the skin in cold weather as well. As you run, the body will still sweat. The cold air will freeze the sweat to your skin causing hypothermia without you even knowing it. Sudden dizziness, headache, or nausea are symptoms. In severely cold weather use a scarf around your mouth, but keeping the scarf about an inch or 2 from your mouth. This helps to moisten and warm the air in the small pocket of the scarf, as sucking in cold air can freeze the lungs, and cause illnesses such as pneumonia.
