Same with skating, hunting or working maybe?
As others have said here, many people run in very cold temperatures. I think breathing hard makes it easier. Your entire body warms up and you don't feel the cold until you get to extremely low temperatures.

Regarding skiing, it depends on the type of skiing that you are doing. Skiing on steep moguls is hard work and you will be out of breath in a short time and your legs will be burning. I've skied in minus temperatures with a scarf over my face, but it was more to avoid frostbite than because of breathing issues.

I live at 8200 feer elevation and run when it's -10 degrees (in California!) Layer your clothes. There's a lot of ridiculous nonsense in this thread from people who do not run (breathe through your nose... it hurts your joints). All sheer lunacy. Wear a hat, gloves and layer your clothing. Get out and RUN no matter what the conditions. The exception is ice because that can injure you severely. Being cold and uncomfy for an hour or so during your run is a lot better than sitting on the couch and doing nothing. Force yourself to remain active in the winter, your mind and your body will thank you.

Get acclimated and dress appropriately. I like a scarf around my face but after a while it gets wet from my exhaust.

I don't jog, but I do walk very briskly in temperatures down to the single digits in the winter months. I dress in layers, I wear a hat on my head, and a scarf over my face and nose to keep them warm. This year I bought a bavaclava to help keep me warm. I've never had my lungs feel cold like you've mentioned, usually it's just my face that will get cold and my hair and eyelashes freeze.

Yep....agree completely

You can run in pretty much any conditions if you are prepared and extreme heat is much worse than extreme cold.

Layering and getting proper winter running gear is also important you can be overdressed for winter running your body will warm up very quickly, you don't need to wear as much as you think....

Okay thanks. Even if I dress up, the lungs still hurt from the cold air but I can try. Asthma was mentioned and I use to have asthma as a teen maybe that is the why it hurts?

As for temperature, anything at 40 degrees F or below hurts my lungs.

It doesn't hurt while walking to breath, just while jogging and the breathing is much more heavy. So how do other people do it?
Maybe their bodies are just accustom to the cold: I don't know, but I do know they make me cold just to see them out there.With all the ways we have to exercise today, I can't understand those who run up and down the roads. I do know, most have something over their face. I give them a lot of credit for attempting to stay in shape.

Probably. Cold air can trigger an attack.

I don't have asthma but, generally, when my body sends me clear signs not to do something, I don't.

Exactly. The air hurts my face... not my lungs. Maybe you should see someone?!?

Wear a balaclava.


You can get thin ones of silk to thick ones of flannel.
