Does anyone else find it harder work running in the winter months compared to in the summer? My running kit isn't that much heavier - a jacket and a long sleeve base layer compared with just a short sleeved one and full leggings compared with capris.
I've been running for about 18 months and have built up my distance sensibly over that time. Generally speaking I go out at least twice a week, sometimes 3 times. If I run twice a week then I substitute my 3rd session for a High Intensity Interval Training Fitness Class - not an easy option: I didn't realise there were that many squats in the world!
One of my weekly runs is about 9.25 miles and the other runs are about 6.5 miles. Both routes are hilly/ undulating, but generally road based.
I'd be really interested to hear of any top tips from fellow runners who also find it more tiring when they run in winter compared with in the summer. Any thoughts?
