Tuesday Tidbits- Cold Weather Running Tips

Three good runs again this week - first with Kovas and Little A, a solo Halloween run and a weekend run with Tazer and Gaigai.  Ran everyone in the family except Munchkin :(

Chilly weekend run with Tazer and Gaigai.

With the temperature dropping, here are some quick cold weather running tips:

Dress in thin wicking layers, and avoid overdressing.

Protect hands and feet.

Wear a hat - about 40% of heat is lost through your head.

Be visible - If you are going to run in the dark, wear reflective clothing to be seen and safe.

Take it easy - Give your body time to warm up.

Have any cold weather running tips to share?

  1. Great tips! When I wear layers while I run in the cold weather it helps me sweat more. Sweating burns more calories. You have a cute site here! Tons of great information.
