I can run below freezing and be ok. Probably mid-20s would be my comfort limit, and I assume Chicago's gonna have some days below that. If your comfort limit is 50 degrees, you're going to have issues.
Yeah, I usually go into about the low 30s and that's it.
Guessing you're a hockey fan here too? Happy to see that hockey has made a big comeback in Chicago, even if they beat the Flyers a couple years ago.
I currently run 2x/week, about 4-5 miles each time. In Chicago I'll be increasing my number of runs because I won't be playing hockey 2x/week anymore. Maybe that will turn me into an actual "runner."
(And by "run" I mean run about a mile, walk for a 1/4 mile, run, walk, run, walk. I haven't yet mastered the slow-and-steady constant run yet, although I am improving.)
Oh nice, a team that has broken my heart many times! Flyers fan here, Game 7 in 2000 still haunts me. I stopped playing hockey after high school (I played roller and don't skate very well anyways), but then I put on weight, so I had to start running, I usually go for 4 miles 4x a week. Really hate it though, thinking about getting back into soccer, thinking it might be easier.
I'm excited to go to some Hawks games too, would love to see Hawks-Wings or Hawks-Canucks!
