Hey boys. So winter is hitting us here in Canada. What kind of runs do you do in the winter. The cold air just knocks me out, so I generally do a slow steady pace for endurance. Anyone else have a lot of trouble running and breathing in the winter. ?. Any idea ??

Its alot harder but then thats good training i guess, plus one day you may be training in norway in arctic warfare and it aint getting any warmer for that one :wink:

im just doing normal 3 mile runs and stuff and also sprints on football pitch
today i ran 1.5 miles out in 11.45 so nice and steady but warms everything up then turned around and ran back in 9.30- this is quite good cause by the time youve done the first half your used to the cold and all warmed up ready to push yourself (Note: none of this is by choice its cause i have my prmc in dec so its *text deleted* be cold! *text deleted*)

Its acctualy harder in the summer, the heat exhorsts you out. More people get put into hunter through summer, when its cold you always get warmer but when its already warm well then you just become fryed egg

Wel as short sed summer is harder to run in becase the air becomes so much thinner with the heat!

Howeva everyone who is joining RT or doin PRMC MUST run in this whether *text deleted* i swear that all it does in the new yr is rain...take my word for it so theres no escaping the cold, wet, miserable weather!

Also training in different weathers does mentally prepare u...u get stronger and more confident about getting out there in the rain in *text deleted* own time!

Jus think boutthose who look and think "bloody nutter out in this weather"

Theres a few things you cant do in the winter though. For example the place where I do my hill sprints is off road so id just be sliding down the hill instead of try to slowly run down it. Also I do alot of running round a field and you cant really do that *text deleted* of the wet. So the best thting to do which ive been doing is the 3 miler on the road or going to the gym and using the cross trainer, rower ect. Oh and also swimming. Cant beat swimming.
Do you think the rain slows you down? i think it does sometimes.

Winter here it gets to around 25 degrees (I'm living in the Middle-east for now)

So running outside isn't too bad.

Should try running at 35-40 degrees guys! Woah!

Went back to the UK this summer and running outside was a charm 15 degrees woah that was lovely.

I'm *text deleted* be swimming a lot thought, as well as fartlek training which I do with rugby.
