Winter is no longer coming - it is here!
I thought I'd list what I wore on my run back from work, and it was just about right for the 6km 40 minute jog home.
shoes - normal inov8 roclites, with debri gaitor to keep out the snow (but a size too big)
3 pairs of socks - normal school socks, insulated thermal Japanese technology socks, heavy duty smartwool winter socks.
4 pairs of trousers, compression/cycling shorts, thick winter cycling tights, lined shell/training pants, windproof over trousers.
4 shirts/jackets - long sleeved thermal base layer, thick long sleeved base layer, running soft shell fleece lined hoodie, patagonia wind shell.
2 buffs, one mainly for the neck, one to cover the face and ears
1 thick fleece hat (hoods as required)
3 pairs of gloves, liner gloves, thin fleece gloves, big soft shell wind resistant fleece gloves.
I got home with my eye lashes white and icing, and the breathing increasingly difficult as the buff over my mouth and nose froze.
Now be careful out there!
