So i decided to go out for a run today. I had been gyming and running on treadmills for years. Last summer i did my first 10k, and for training i ran outdoors quite comfortably in just my usual gym kit. This was the summer though, as wet as it was! I'm still very much a beginner and need some advice particularly with regards to proper clothing and running gear.
As you guys may know, an hour ago it was getting dark, and temperature judging by current weather report is probably 6 to 8 degrees centigrade. I thought i'd give it a go in my usual gym kit, just gyming shorts and skin-tight t-shirt. Aside from probably seeming a bit weird (or was it just me?), I found it quite difficult and only ran half of what i intended, about 2k. I was sweating after so i clearly did warm-up but the cold just made it more difficult, beathing etc.
So what are you guys doing for current conditions? Track or shell suits or skin-tight running gear? Would you guys run in just shorts and t-shirt and just tried to warm-up?
Sorry for the long post as it's my first. Any advise would be appreciated.
