Well we may be out of the worst of the Winter and the days are getting longer, but if last week is anything to go by then we may still have some cold snaps before Spring! Getting the motivation to head out for a run can be tough, and when it's cold and wet, it can be even harder! I've comprised a short tick list of tips on how to run in the colder weather.
We pulled into our campsite somewhere after 10 pm, battered from a long drive. The sun had set out the driver's side window hours ago leaving us to navigate the long single track roads to East Soar in the dark. The weather for the last week had been... less than favourable. Not what we wanted [...]
