Firstly thanks for the advice re shin splints – I now can jog 500 metres or so before the pain starts kicking in which is 500 metres more than when I started!
One morning last week we had our first frost where I live and I went out as usual at 5.30am for my jog. However, about 200 metres in I strated breathing hard (as you do) but the frosty air started burning my throat and windpipe really badly. So badly in fact that I had to stop and wretch.
After 5 minutes recovery I jogged agin only this time breathing through my nose – but this made things worse and my throat/windpipe burned really badly again.
I did consider afterwards wearing a balaclava next time but I’m not sure if a strange bloke running in the dark wearing a balaclava will be welcomed where I live!
So I was wondering, does anyone have any hints or tips for breathing hard in cold weather please?
