Children's wear in Winter
So I bought lots of thermal wear for the kids, and invested heavily in mittens and heavy woollen shawls. Especially now, that we're living in the country, their regular winter wear didn't do the trick anymore.
From our previous home, I walked the kids to school. And my eldest kids only had a 20 minute bike ride to get to school. Their clothing just wasn't warm enough for longer distances.
I'm pleased to report the adjustments to their clothes worked! They're not complaining about the cold. Only about their stupid mom, making them wear thermal wear.
I'm dressing like an onion
As a runner the cold gives me pause: I definitely don't want to dress too chilly, but too hot is just as bad. Since all the running literature emphasizes the importance of layering, I decided to dress like an onion!
So this is what I wore this morning:
- thermal tank top
- thermal tights
- running pants from H&M
- hardlooptrui van Kruidvat
- Adidas bodywarmer
- Running jacket with sleevves
- and of course a woolen hat, mittens, and a shawl.
Does the weather influence your running plans?
How do you adjust your clothing to the weather?
