My last 10k race on 4 October I discovered my summer running gear was a little cold for the beautiful surroundings of Kielder Forest…
So today I invested in a couple of items …leggings, 2 x snoods, gloves, ear warmer band, reflectors and socks all from Aldi. I’d read a review of their jackets and they said they were NOT breathable so I decided against buying the jacket and also I have a couple of lightweight breathable jackets any way…
The only thing I need is a hi vis waistcoat for the evening runs.
A bit naughty but I haven’t run since 4 October so I need to run … I have cold weather running gear now so I have no excuses ….
Think I also need to book another race soon … as I don’t want to give up on my running … just yet. 3 x 10k and 2 HM since 13 July 2014… may I need to look at a 10k race.
Got to keep on running… ☺

I hear ya!
Good luck finding a ‘breathable’ running jacket. I’ve bought loads and after running 30 minutes in each one, i’m sweating buckets lol. I always end up taking it off and wrapping it round my waist. Great excuse to get out and running in the winter tho, my favourite time of year to run.
First time running in Autumn and Winter…. so I will let u know if I enjoy it later in the year! Jacket … I have two jackets already so thought I’d better not buy another one just yet!
I used to run in the same ‘lucky’ shorts come hail, wind or snow! Still do! If I lose the shorts not sure what I’d do! 🙂
Lol… I have a lucky particular pair of shorts ..so lucky I bought 2 exactly the same colour and size but not brave enought to run in winter hence mad dash to Aldi! I have always ran in Asics trainers then I bought Brooks and always had a bad run each time I ran in them! The Brooks trainers are now expensive leisure and not running shoes!
