Went to school in Western NY and have run in the below zero temps. Don't think I ever said "it's to cold to run." I've been doing a few runs in 80 plus weather and .

I know I'm a delicate and fancy gentleman but how do you guys south of me handle it?

25 to 95. Anything over 95 I consider unhealthy.

Anything under 25 I consider an excuse to be lazy. I'll sit and watch the temps and when it hits 94 I'll hit the road.

74 and 76.

But only if I have to.

ETA 15 seconds

Out here 90 degrees in the morning is the max I will do since the sun is so strong. In the evening with the sun down I will run in 100 degree heat.

It does get down to the low 30s in the winter here and that is usually not a problem if I layer appropriately. I have never experienced anything approaching 0 so I don't know how difficult that would be.

ETA: Like most things you adjust to it. I carry extra water in the summer, and choose times of the day when the sun is not at its peak. For me its not the heat, but the strength of the sun that is brutal. I see people running out here at noon and I always wonder if they will get heat stroke or heat exhaustion.

How far? I usually run the hotter or colder it gets to avoid being outside.

Everyday is a training opportunity.

I have no minimum. I have no maximum. I have wrecked knees so I ride an exercise bike for cardio.
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 2:18:05 PM EDT
Run? As in exercising? Fuck that. My truck gets me to McDonald's quicker and I don't break a sweat.

When I ran in the summer, I tended to do so at 4:00AM.
Mostly sub 80oF
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 2:22:51 PM EDT
55-75
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 2:35:26 PM EDT
35 in the winter, 75 in the spring/summer. Try to run in the early morning or late evening. I hate running in the heat.
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 2:35:54 PM EDT
Temperature isn't as much an issue for me as precipitation. That 25 - 95 thing was about right but if there's ice and snow on the ground or standing water I'll stay in and lift. I hate soggy feet and the resulting stinky shoes.
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 2:36:37 PM EDT
0* to about 80*

can you tell I've lived in the north all my life?
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 2:37:33 PM EDT
25F in the winter, 95F or so is about the top for summer.

I go running after work on Mon-Wed-Fri. Been mid to low 90s here. Fucking sucks, but just crank the tunes, and push it out. Gotta stay hydrated throughout the day or I an hurting on my run.

Fuck that I love running in the rain. Best run times evar were in the wet. After I get back, I put my wet shoes on top of my outside air conditioner and they dry off pretty damn quickly.

Temp doesn't matter. All running is done at 0400.

To each his own, I guess. Another down-side to running in the rain is a water-logged cotton shirt will sand-paper your nipples off.

Cold does't matter. Heat does. If it's summertime, I run in the dark or when the sun is low.

I always put band aids on my nipples. In the summer time, any run leaves my shirt soaking wet. Bloody nipples suck.

Has to be at least 73ºF but not higher than 72ºF.
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 2:52:12 PM EDT
About 40-90. No running if there's ice or snow on the ground- already carrying enough injuries. The cold hurts me more than heat- metal in lower jaw.

-273.15° on the Celsius scale , in hell.

Meh, I can't do it anymore, takes my knees to months to get over it every time I think I can.

Got to stick to the bike.....

Any temp. Sleeping on the other hand
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 2:59:39 PM EDT
-30 to 110.

I did really well last year.

This summer has been great!! 55-70 @ 0530.

I walk mainly. Once at 0530 to 0700 then again at 1500 to 1700. Two miles each time, with varying loads............
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 2:59:40 PM EDT
I won't run below 50º F. I ran when it was ~46º F and my lungs burned so much.

I ran once when it was 94º F and almost passed out. I think my max is probably around 85º F or 90º F.

Coldest... eh pretty much anything, -20 has been done and isn't that bad.

Hottest... I start getting nauseous at temps above 85. I've raced in temps in the 90s, don't know if I'd willingly train in that though.
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 3:07:23 PM EDT
Coldest I've ever run at was around 8 F. It usually doesn't get that cold around me so I was unprepared for temperatures that literally made my dick numb.

I guess warmest I've ever run at was around 90 - I usually run in the AM so I'm out and back before the day has a chance to approach its high.
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 3:07:49 PM EDT
-4ish here in upstate NY, and 115 running a 10k in Red Rock Canyon in NV.
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 3:08:05 PM EDT
20F to 85F. it really depends on the humidity .
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 3:08:40 PM EDT
I'll run in anything, but it never gets too bad here.

Coldest I've been out in is maybe 0F & -15-20 below with a windchill. But that's pretty painful when feeling returns to your fingers. Not overly pleasant.

Warmest I've done is perhaps 95-100F. If in the sun, I won't do more than a couple miles at that temp. Worse than mere heat is heat & humidity. 90F + high humidity is brutal.

Anything between 15F & 90F is pretty easy to dress for & remain reasonably comfortable for long distances.

If you run with pants on, your dick won't go numb. And women won't spray you with pepper spray.

I run most days after work when it's still 100+ out. I don't really know the coldest I would run in. It doesn't get very cold here. I have ran when it was in the 20's and I was fine though.
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 3:09:03 PM EDT
67, with 25% humidity.


I don't run ever.
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 3:10:03 PM EDT
The fastest 10K I ever ran was with an outside temp of 100+ with not a cloud in the sky and very muggy... the heat reflecting off of that road was abysmal. I think I ran as fast as I did because I just wanted it to be over. I'll take running in the hot heat to running in below-zero temps though.

+1 I enjoy running in the rain. I did a 20 miler in a pouring downpour & it was probably the most pleasant long run I've done. The only unpleasant aspect is if it stops raining, then the humidity strikes.




Very cold weather + strong wind is my least pleasant running weather (though sleet is probably a close second).

Depends on how many people are shooting at me.

I've run below freezing and above a hundred... both were uncomfortable for different reasons.

Mostly because I hate running
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 3:20:51 PM EDT
I'll run to any low it gets around here except if its raining and around freeze temps or if there's too much snow/ice on the ground to run safely.

Above 80-85 I'll do shorter runs, but it won't be enjoyable. Above 85 forget it.
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 3:23:44 PM EDT
I am a pretty fair weather runner. I enjoy running a lot, but I don't run in rain, if it is below like 30 degrees or above 90 or so. I also don't like to run in very humid weather.
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 3:25:05 PM EDT
Around -25f for very short distances as you do not want to sweat very much at those temps.
Also do not want to collapse a lung.
I have run at -40f and it's not fun.


In the heat my cut off is in the 80's.
Link Posted: 8/12/2014 3:26:21 PM EDT
just run to practice for pt test

I don't have any issue running in heat--I think I can actually go farther--of course am flushed when done and soaked in sweat...but after ten min cool down...feel great.

When I ran in my younger days it did not matter as any summer day in gulf coast Texas is hot and humid.
On really high temp days I would wet down my entire head and hair with cool water and take off and limit the run to no more than three miles.
Hell I am about to turn 62 and did a pretty fast two mile power walk yesterday on the non shaded and wide open high school track and it was pretty damn hot and humid at 5:30 p.m.

Edit to add...I did not like running in temps below 40 degrees F because I usually ended up stripping my throat.

Low 40s to mid 90s.
