Went out yesterday morning, was about 4 or 5°C - perfect weather to run, in fact maybe a little cooler would be better.  Once you get going you soon warm up.

Not when you're running!  Hypothetically speaking of course.

I have some running gloves, and when it's below freezing I do tend to start a run with them on (as I suffer with my hands when it's cold), but usually after quarter of an hour or so, I end up taking them off when they get too warm.

Maybe some like these would be 'better' http://www.terra-nova.co.uk/Activity/Running/Ultra_Glo_Glove_Yellow_Small.html

Yeah, I can still use the touchscreen on my phone with my gloves on.  They're not quite as thin as those crazy yellow things though.

Sigh at you having a posh garmin...

Even when I work out and do kettlebells and all that stuff I'll be cold if it's too close to 10 degrees...and that's a pretty intense excersise

I have rather stupidly agreed to participate in a little challenge

run 2012 miles in 2012

so that's close to 9km/day. I really wish I'd worked that out before agreeing to it, thank god it's a leap year

Gonna have to drop out of the Silverstone 1/2 Marathon as I will be in Spain. Going to do the Milton Keynes one on the 4th March instead unless anyone has a better suggestion.
