    I'm about to go run in 25 degrees Fahrenheit and was wondering if other guys liked running in cold weather? I'm not a fan of cold weather but I hate running indoors so I just handle it.

    I like running in the cold, but the kind of cold I am talking about is in the upper 50s- low 60s.

    No my lungs freeze and then I spend the rest of the day trying to breathe again. F that. Hiking in the winter is fun, so is skiing, skating, hockey, and other outdoor things, RUNNING and putting that much air in and out of your lungs at once is not.

    fable saidno one.


    Haha, that's understandable but don't you think it gets extremely boring if you run on an indoor track or a treadmill if it is too cold outside to run?

    It is. But this princess isn't getting chapped lips and a micro penis for no one.

    I love taking walks in the cold. The freezing cold air clears my mind.

    I run year round, no matter what. Cold is fun. Would rather run in snow than humid heat.

    Running in the cold reminds me of cross country at school (in a bad way).

    I do not really care for it. The feeling of being warm and sweaty while the cold hits you at the same time is not a feeling I find too pleasant. It is better then running in the heat though.

    I honestly don't mind running in the cold. As long as the sidewalks are not slippery, and as long as it isnt 5 below 0 like it was when I ran on christmas day... breathing became difficult. Just remember to wear layers that breathe.

    I put up with it, too. But. It's so much easier to pull something in the cold... icon_sad.gif

    Not me - I find the cold air (anything below 0 C) is not good for my lungs so I do the treadmill in the winter even though I think the treadmill is really one of the most boring things you can do.

    I have seen guys, here in Canada, out running in -15 C though!

    It doesn't get THAT cold here in NC, though there are occasional mornings in the low 20s (-5 or 6 C). I find that I really enjoy running in the cold, especially in the trails in the woods if there's a dusting of snow. Very peaceful.

    I grew up in northern Ohio, and the winters were brutal, but somehow I always found a way to go running, even during blizzards.

    Yup, love running in the cold... I don't love running in extreme heat, though. Saps my energy.

    I love to as well. It kinda makes me feel alive. Now the shower I take when I get home hurts like a bitch since Im a ice cube.

    I don't like running outside when it's that cold. I have to dress warmly enough not to freeze as soon as I step outside, but cool enough not to sweat myself into complete dehydration. It never works. I don't mind running on a treadmill. It's not as fun as running outside, but I listen to my music and shut the rest of the world out anyway.

    That's perfect running weather. Not too hot. Not too cold.

    I never minded the cold when I went running, I feel that the heat takes too much energy out of me.. But I would never run on snow like Smartmoney said.. icon_neutral.gif

    I feel like I can run further in the cold. but i don't like the feel of the cold air on my lungs. would much rather run when it's warmer/humid out....the breathing doesn't feel like it hurts as much. but then i sweat more...and my muscles feel like they get worn out faster. so yeah, damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    Yeah, I actually dropped my two mile time by a minute when I ran today so maybe the cold works in my favor.
