clawing my way back
Greg in ND
2013 Trying to become a runner again.
For the face, I sewed a couple of face masks out of stretchy fleece. I only wear these for very cold conditions: below 0 F. In which case I also put some vaseline on exposed parts.
If you something to drink for a long run, and it's much below freezing point, expect it not to stay liquid for a long time. I had to go dry for the last 9 miles of my run on Monday as my Gatorade froze.
What about your lungs? I find mine burn and get all tight when it is cold out. Do you all wear a gator or a scarf or just tough it out?
Some people who have asthma however are more sensitive to cold air when exercising. It happens more when exercising because air is going more through the mouth and has a bit less time to heat up. Could this be your case?
There is an ongoing myth that lungs freeze when running in cold weather.
Has anyone found any good gloves/mittens that wick the sweat away? My hands always sweat pretty bad when I am running or biking.
I've been thinking of buying a face mask, like the one GregND uses. Does anyone have one they recommend? Do you like yours Greg? A breathing hole is probably preferable?
