It can be difficult running when there is a particularly strong wind. Presuming you don't suffer from asthma, or have a cold or chest infection, it could be that you need to slow your pace a bit or alternate running for a short distance and then go back to walking. It takes a little while to build up aerobically.

As the weather gets colder it's important to wear lots of thin layers or you can buy thermal running gear. If the temperature is around freezing when you start you definitely need a pair of gloves and a hat.
