Thanks to DC Trifecta Bloggers (Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Mar from Mar on the Run, and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What?!) for hosting the weekly Friday Five Link Up and this week they’re asking for cold weather running tips.
Now……………here’s the problem. I’m not a cold weather gal. I once had Christmas in Hawaii and I’m pretty sure that was my kind of weather! I was okay with swimsuits and Christmas music around the pool! Just sayin!
1. Anyways, so this week I came across this chart. I think it’s pretty appropriate….
2.Cover your head and hands. It sounds logical but sometimes people just want warm ears and they forgo covering the good ole’ noggin. Heat is released here so hold in the heat and your chances of staying warm are much greater
3. Start your run with the wind at your back. That way when you’re heading back in and tired the wind won’t cause you to work as hard.
4. Change clothes quickly as possible after a cold run. You’re sweaty and your just holding that coldness close to those worn out muscles. Get some comfy warms clothes on. You’ve worked hard enough you deserve it at this point!
5. You still have to hydrate. It make be cold out but your still sweating just probably not at the rate of summer time runs. Don’t think you can go without still hydrate.
So there you have it. Bundle up and keep moving.
And once again….Thank you to the DC Trifecta Bloggers (Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Mar from Mar on the Run, and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What?!) for hosting the weekly Friday Five Link Up. Be sure to check out their posts as well.
Till next time……Cheers!
