Today’s Topic is: Ways to Keep Warm
Unfortunately, this topic is so relevant this year. We’ve had the coldest temps since I’ve started running.
Well, one way is to stay inside and run on the treadmill or indoor track but all runners know that it’s not the same as running on the road.
So here are my FIVE TIPS:
1. Run Loops
This way you can stop if you get too cold. You can also warm up in your car and then go out for another. It is dangerous to be outside for a very long time in sub-zero temps.
2. Cover your face.
It’s the only place that you can’t cover with clothes but I either wear a baklava or just tie my scarf backwards and pull it over my face.
3. Wear wool.
Wool seems warmer to me. I wear a wool hat, wool mittens and wool socks. They keep me pretty toasty.
4. Use Hand warmers and/or Toe Warmers.
I just put them in my mittens and they last for 10 hours (too bad I only run for 1 lol).
5. LAYERS Everywhere
Yes, layers on top. Layers on the bottom (I wear a skirt over my tights). I even wear gloves underneath my mittens.
So you don’t have to stay inside and hunker down when it gets cold. Just bundle up and GO OUTSIDE and RUN!!!!!!!!!!
Happy Running! How about you… have you been running outside in these frigid temps? Any other tips for staying warm?
