Shorter runs in the winter

It seems like my runs are shorter on the cold winter days. I ran a nice little 10k today, my longest run in a while. In the summer I might run 5 or 6 miles every day not just on the weekends. I hate to admit my long runs in winter are just 5 or 6 miles.

What I wear running in the winter

Bit of a chilly run today. It is 13 degrees and windy. I wore two layers of everything including gloves. I like those big fuzzy yellow work gloves with the black cotton work gloves inside. My hands stay warm at any temperature with those. Over a t-shirt I had a hooded sweatshirt with a vinyl windbreaker. I also wear a stocking cap under the hood. I hate those stocking caps that keep sliding down over your eyes. I also remove the string on hood or stuff them in side so they don't swing back and forth sometimes hitting your cold cheeks. On days like this I wear two pairs of runners tights.

Don't you just love...

When you go for a run it is perfect weather. It is sunny and Comfortably cool. You are just coasting along with absolutely no effort. When you finally quit and go home for a glass of ice tea, you get that incredibly good feeling that you get after a good run.
