Welcome back to our recurring winter themed weekly recap: Jenn Is Cold. Here’s another cold weather running tip!
I ran into a lot of trouble with my phone battery dying in the cold a couple years ago. It was recommended that I use my body heat to keep my phone warm, but easier said than done when pockets large enough for a phone tend to be the outermost layer, right? Pants and jackets are where I’ve mostly found them. Fine if it, like, kinda cold, but less helpful when the temperature dips below 25 degrees.
So here’s what I’ve been doing on the v. v. cold days: I put on a bottom layer long sleeve shirt, put my phone in a running belt over top, put a short sleeve shirt over that, and then my top layer vest/jacket over that. The body heat trapped between your two shirts keeps your phone warm. Tried and true! I mean, at this point you may as well be running on a sunny beach.
Anyway, welcome to Tapertown, population me:
Sunday | ran 7.2 miles outside in 1:10
Monday | 55 minute ballet class
Missed my walk due to high winds and much work.
Tuesday | ran 5.4 miles outside in 55 minutes
Wednesday | ran 5.24 miles outside in 50 minutes
Thursday | walked 2.13 miles outside; 55 minute ballet class
Friday | ran 7.01 miles on the treadmill in 1:10
I was trying to dial in on my race pace, but oh boy, maintaining one speed for a full hour is boooooring.
Saturday | rest
