I went running on Wednesday (and am going again today!) for the first time since the weather warranted bundling up. I prepared by wearing:
- my fleece jacket with zip-up pockets so my iPod wouldn’t bounce out
like my phone did that one time
- long pants
- a fleece headband with little ear flaps
I, however, forgot:
My fingers got all cold and Crypt-Keeper-esque to the point that even brushing them up against something hurt. Duly noted. Shall’nt forget thine gloves again.
Since I was sidelined by shin splints during the winter last year, I’m ignorant about how to prepare for cold-weather running. What wardrobe allowances do you have to make for running in cold weather (tights? some super-special fleece?)? What other running gadgets (Spi Belt? water bottle with handle?) have made your runs easier? (Furthermore, can you write/read “runs” without thinking of poop? Because I can’t.)
