Earlier this week, our friends over at Breakaway Running posted a few incredible tips on their Facebook page about cold weather running. Here is the post if you missed it. Check it out now!
Here a few more creative ways to help you get out the door AND stay warm while you're gone:
- Sleep in your running clothes. This trick aims to avoid taking off warm clothes and putting on cold ones. If your house is cold, there's nothing worse than changing clothes in what feels like a freezer.
-Put your clothes in the dryer. There are many reasons you may not wan to sleep in your running clothes, but you still don't have to put them on cold. Throw your glacial garments in the dryer to warm up!
- Sleep with your clothes under your pillow. Along the same lines as the previous ideas, why not put on your warmed clothes while you're still IN the bed. It's just one step closer to getting ready without getting up.
-Run with Hot Hands. Whether you're wearing gloves or not, you can hold these small reminders of warmth in your hands or make good use of any and all pockets.
- Cover yourself. Ears, head, face, hands, feet, core. If it gets cold, cover it. There are no rules. No one will judge you for running in a scarf and smartwool socks. They'll just be impressed that you're running.
-Layer with undressing in mind. Be thoughtful in your layering. You may get out there and find you're warmer than you want to be. Dress to undress.
- Remember to hydrate and fuel. When it’s cold out, it’s easy to overlook your fluid and fuel needs. There is no need to forgo hydration to be “fast” to get it done and back inside.
