Usually I'm boiling straight after a run. I have to strip off as soon as possible. It's only about 10 minutes later (usually when I'm having my chocolate milkshake if after a long run ) that I start to feel a little cold. Then it's off to the shower and then I'm OK again.

I do cyclo cross racing in the winter, which is 55 minutes all out riding around muddy field, after the finish I go straight back to the car and change into lots of clothes before cleaning my bike. I am always surprised at the people who can hang around in their race kit chatting while I try not to freeze - even though I am warm enough racing in shorts and a thin top.

Might it be dehydration as well? It's hard to drink when it's cold but I must be losing a lot of water through breathing and sweat.

I always get the shivers about 20-30 minutes after I finish a long run in the cold, but I also get pins and needles in my fingers about the same time and that normally lasts longer. I suspect this could be a poor circulation thing that is somehow exacerbated by the cold.

Got something to say?
