Todays run was cold and crisp – it was 4 degrees out but the “feels like” temperature was -1.
If I am honest I didn’t notice it that much as I didn’t hang around and just got on with it. I wrapped up well and decided to run 4K (or 5K if I wasn’t too cold).
I had a dip in the middle of the run whilst I fiddled with my phone but apart from that I kept a consistent pace.
With the auto pause on my iSmoothRun I should stand still to do things like fiddle but I prefer to keep moving.
it was definitely cold as I realised about 4K in that I could no longer feel my little toe on my right foot. I wore my usual padded socks but they weren’t sufficient to keep my poor toes warm 😦
I didn’t see many people whilst I was out and thanks to working from home I managed to get out before the sun went down.
I aim to complete another run at the weekend – I just hope the winter weather (yes it finally feels like winter), doesn’t get in the way.
I know I can run much further than 5K but I am very pleased to have reached it today given the temperature and considering I was sat at home all day writing a report.
I had a bit of a surprise when I got home though. As I was running earlier than normal I forgot about the hot water so when I jumped in the shower I had a nasty shock 😞 I ended a cold run with a cold shower – it may help my aching muscles but I am not sure the rest of me is quite so pleased (I don’t think I have ever towelled off so quickly!).
