Tips for Running in the Cold and Rain
Shared by Ms Pauline Tse, veteran runner and volunteer coach of the group running session for the HKU Marathon Team 2014
1. Disposable Raincoat
Prepare a disposable raincoat (one size smaller than usual). Cut it to about hip length and keep in a small waist bag in case it rains too heavily and gets too windy.
Wear a waterproof cap to keep warm and dry. It gives you better vision when it rains heavily, especially for those are bespectacled.
3. Arm sleeves
Wear arm sleeves to keep warm. They can be pulled down if you get too warm. They also be used to wipe away sweat / rain from the face.
4. Compression Tights / Socks
Runners can consider wearing compression tights and / or compression socks for better muscle protection / performance as well as for keeping warm.
5. Energy Gels
Bring energy gels (or any accustomed food) if your finish time will be over 1.5-2 hours.
