Ok, Iím still very much a novice but am coming to discover that this is the exercise of choice for me. Iím slow, but I go, and I keep telling myself thatís all that matters. However I realize I have a lot to learn.
A couple quick questions that crossed my mind as I took advantage of the Ďsnow dayí home from school and got out for my 3 mile Ďruní (Iím calling it a run to encourage myself, more like a jog to you experience folks!):
1. Today was the first day my legs were chilled on the first mile. I recently bought a down lined running skirt that keeps my very upper thighs and tush quite cozy, but today was the first day the front of my thighs were pretty cold. I wear some black danskin (I think?) stretch-type pants. They arenít super thin, but not super thick either. By the end of the Ďruní it wasnít so bad, but Iím sure the winter will get colder before it gets warmer. What do you folks wear on your legs. Any product recommendations?
2. My ipod shut off immediately as I took it out of my pocket to turn off my Nike running app. Iím sure it was the cold, but what do other folks do about this? Iím sure Iím not the first who this has happened to.
Thanks for any feedback/suggestions/info anyone can share! Iím just feeling proud that I actually got out there todayÖI would not have even gone out for a walk at this time last year.
