Cold weather running is not my favorite. I don't like to sit, walk, or run in cold weather. My husband would say "it's all in your mind". As I begin running, my nose becomes a dripping facet, where I have to use the inside of my shirt as a tissue. My toes, legs, boobies, & arms are frozen. Yes, I wear base layers, but still freeze.
I keep telling myself I'll warm up, but I never do. When I round the last 2 miles on a long run, I imagine myself in a hot bath with hot coffee.
I've read blogs about people who take ice baths which helps minimize muscle swelling. These people are animals! I hope someday I can do that too... bazinga!
