It’s starting. The weather is getting chilly, which means that those of us with outdoor exercise routines have cold mornings to contend with. You don’t have to let that drop in temperature hurt your workout! Here are some ideas on winterizing your exercise routine so you can keep it up all winter long.
Dress the Part
Layers are the key to a more comfortable winter workout. Start with an organic cotton t-shirt to help wick moisture away from your body, then layer on a long sleeved top and a hoodie. As you get moving, you’ll start to warm up, and it’s nice to be able to shed those layers!
You can also invest in some thicker socks and warm pants to keep your feet and legs from getting chilly.
Bundling up your extremities can make a big difference in winter, too. Cozy gloves and a hat or ear warmers are a must on chilly days. If you have trouble catching your breath in the cold, you might consider wrapping a scarf loosely around your mouth and nose.
