FAQ

What should I wear to go running in the winter?
Being far less fit than I would like to be, I get hot very quickly on a run, but I find layers to be the answer. You are going to need your summer running tee or a base layer, then a long sleeve/quarter zip and a running jacket. Mix these options up to suit the conditions with hats and gloves and you should be good in most conditions. Winter weight tights are great for the legs too.

What to buy for running in winter?
Start with the list above, you need to be warm, and you need to be seen, but what combination of winter accessories suit your runs, and the routes you take would be up to you.

How can I improve my running in winter?
Your body can only operate at its peak when you are at the correct temperature, and you might only motivate yourself to get out there if you know you are not going to be cold, so make sure you have all the gear you need to stay warm, and enthusiastic. You need to make sure you have the right grip for the conditions, and stay hydrated, you need more water than you would think in winter, so look after yourself.

Ray Barlow

Having suffered from Chronic Fatigue for over a decade, I am a recent convert to the joys of running. Although every run steals a lot of energy, the mental health and fitness benefits more than make up for it. My runs are mainly across the back of the nearby beaches, dodging between the tourists. When not geeking out over the latest running tech, you can find me trying new gins, making gins, or boring anyone within earshot about gin.
