Did you know that the weather and temperature can affect your running and performance? It’s true! But have no fear, below I am sharing tips that you can implement into your running schedule for both cold and hot weather.
When running in cold temperatures it’s important to note that the weather will indeed affect the flexibility of your leg and arm muscles. It’s important to take proper precautions to avoid injury which will, of course, affect your running.
Here are several factors to consider when running in cold temperatures:
- Clothing: It’s important to run with a hat to retain heat in your body. It’s not a matter of looking good at this point. What matters most is keeping your body warm. Use layered clothing to provide the best warmth possible. Look for material that will keep the moisture away from your body allowing it to evaporate. Your outer layer should be gortex type of fabric which allows for evaporation of sweat and will allow you to stay warmer.
