It is really difficult to wake up on a cold morning and go out walking or running. There are some things you need to consider when the weather changes and you have to go running. In this blog, Rubina Ratnakar lists some tips for running in winter.
It is important to dress properly for running in the cold. You should neither dress too much nor too little. If you pile up a lot of clothes, your body will heat up very fast and you will want to get out of them very quickly. If you go for a long run, you should take some dry clothes with you.
Dressing in layers for running will help you in running efficiently. For example, if you are wearing a jacket when you are running, you can remove it as soon as your body warms up. Keep in mind that you have to remove the upper layers and keep the lower ones. Some of the essentials for running in winters are running pants, long sleeve t-shirts, a windproof jacket, running socks, gloves, and a good pair of running shoes. You should buy these essentials as and when the winter season approaches.
Running on a windy day can be quite tricky. You should run into the wind when you start running and when you come back the wind should be hitting your back. This will save you from getting chills when you are all sweaty and that can make you fall ill easily.
If the temperature is too cold, you should definitely skip running on that day. Too cold temperatures can make you fall ill and cause a number of health problems.
