    Last night it was -15 celsius and with wind chill it felt like -25 apparently. I wrapped up pretty good and for the most part kept warm however I think I need to be wearing a full on ski mask because otherwise its impossible to cover the entire face. I never knew wind blocking briefs existed but I am really going to look into them, was my biggest worry! I did 10km and it was the slowest 10km I have done in a long time, it felt good being one of the only ones out there! Giving it another shot tonight.

     

    Cant complain too much, my brother lives in Winnipeg where it was -25 celsius with winds making it feel like -40!

     

    What about covering the eyes at night when sunglasses would not be a good idea?

      I run with clear safety glasses(they are Head Racketball glasses) in the dark. They cover a lot of my eye area. So awesome they are that actually I just bought a similar pair of Stanley tinted safety glasses for daytime use. With my ZanHeadwear mask, I literally have NO skin exposure on my face or neck. Love it!

        Pretty much the same here. -36C for overnight tonight.

         

        Pretty cold, but yes at least we aren't in the Prairies or Arctic where it REALLY gets cold!

         

        Some schools a few hours north of us were closed today because the risk of frostbite was a

        5 minute exposure.
