Finished 26 km today. Slowest ever. Never ran this far in such cold weather. It was about +3C when I started but below zero when I finished. Some snowflakes fell along the way. I had my water-back on and drank when needed. I think the cold is the big problem. After 15km I was so cold it hurt. My legs felt frozen and so did my shin and cheeks. Actually all of my face. The sweat turned into a wet cold blanket. And it didn’t matter how hard I tried to run faster, to “reheat” the sweat. I was just getting colder.
I need to forget this now. New long run next weekend.
