Prepping for Winter

>> Friday, October 25, 2013

Those bright, sunny, and unseasonably warm days we were having decided to abruptly go elsewhere. In fact, snow showers are in the forecast and my back is aching from raking. Last night the temperature was around 40 degrees when I headed out on my 6-mile run. It was also dark + I could just smell the winter in the air.

You know the smell, right?

So, I put on my tights, a long-sleeve tech shirt, and my trusty fleece vest and jumped in.

I've written a lot of survival guides for the cold months, so I thought it might be nice to put them all in one place. Whether you're a seasoned runner who just don't like the seasons OR if this is your first winter running, you can enjoy frigid temperatures (or at very least, learn to love the treadmill).

Overall, my best tip for learning to love the cold weather is to just DO IT. (Any maybe bring a friend for emotional support.) Usually by 10 minutes into a run, I'm not shivering anymore. The blood is pumping and I feel much better being outside than stuck indoors. The key, though, is to start now, before it's too much of a shock. It takes some getting used to . . . even if it's only a few miles at a time.

How do you overcome the deep freeze?
