So since I am almost done my couch 25k program I want to start transition into running outside. My problem is that it is starting to get quite chilly here. We had a bit of snow a few days ago.. nothing that stayed but it is cold. I generally don’t do well in the cold and my major concerns are my ears and my chest.
My ears ache a lot in the cold and I went looking for a decent headband to cover them but wasnt able to find anything. Anyone got any suggestions?
I also have a bit of breathing concerns and chest pains from the cold. From previous experience when doing outdoor activities in the cold I have a bit of a harder time breathing and my chest hurts.
Anyone got any tips for running outside in colder temps?
I am just wondering if trying to run outside now is a good idea. I have been pretty much running on the treadmill and I feel like maybe I should wait until warmer weather but that is not going to be until March/April knowing our seasons here. I want to run my first 5k in late spring/early summer. What do you guys think??
