Dont like base layers myself. I usually wear some kind of soccer/gaa jersey, a hoodie/jumper and a light windbrealer over that so it keeps everything compact. My favourite piece of kit in the cold or rain is my woolly hat.

Doing a quick 2 minute warm up before hand I find helps too. Just some jogging on the spot, stretch quads, calves and hamstrings, all while moving. 90 seconds to 2 minutes is plenty. Gets the blood flowing and should stay warm on the run then.

Fair fucks, 10k is a fair whack. Haven't gone over 6k myself.

Don't bother with more than a t-shirt and light jacket maybe for rain. I mean you surely warm up when HR gets up. More motivation not to stop

Hmm. I've been using a base layer top (cheap yoke - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and a jersey or similar over it on top.

I'm fairly ok but around the mid-section gets uncomfortably cold when the temperature is down around 4C. I haven't try wearing a hoodie or a jacket on top again, I was just thinking I could do with a better quality underlayer but I might try one of my cycling rain jackets the next time and see if the extra outer layer does the trick.

Same as you, I'd typically wear a base layer like that and then a running top over it if it's really cold. Wouldn't ever wear a wind breaker or any kind of jacket, would get far too sweaty and hot later in a run wearing those. Also will wear running leggings under a pair of running shorts when cold, looks a bit stupid but no apologies!

Wind breakers is what froze ya. Don't condensate in the cold. I wore a hoodie tonight and tracksuit bottoms . Dressed like an Anto . Was warm though . Crispy evening . 10k nice one . Mentally hard with a Injury doubt . WP

I used to be against windbreakers even for cycling because of the sweating up problem but I now have a very light asics one that is reasonably waterproof and very well against cold and rain and never gets sweaty. It helps if you get one a size or two bigger than you need it to be. Its not one of the really expensive ones either, picked it up in their Kildare Village shop for about 40 and tend to use it all the time now.
