Is cold! It’s the time of year when a lot of people run away from the gym, forget physical activity at home, and the temptation to linger under blankets is really strong. Those who practice outdoor sports such as walking or running then, in addition to running into laziness, fall into the trap of lack of motivation.
How to remain willing to face the cold and keep up with the body? There are a few basic tips that can help you deal with this dilemma. In a recent interview, the running couchMatt Crowe of Australia pointed out a list of useful ideas not to discourage in the winter. Check out.
1. Do not go alone
Find a partner to run with or join a group. In some municipal parks there are people who organize and run together. If there are more people with you, the possibility of giving up drops dramatically.

2. Look on the bright side
The race-accustomed body prefers cooler weather because it saves energy to try to cool your body while running. This is an advantage when choosing the coolest time to race.
3. Warm up at home
Doing stretching and heating at home will better prepare your body before leaving home, making the task easier and leaving you with more courage to face the cold. Going up and down stairs in your building or skipping rope are recommended activities.
4. Dress accordingly
The ideal is to dress with at most two layers of clothing. Unless it is in a sub-zero temperature, no exaggerations and very heavy clothes. Lightweight gloves and jackets suitable for playing sports are a good choice if you want to feel more comfortable and warm.
5. Use the direction of the wind in your favor
The tip is to run against the wind at the beginning of the activity and in the wind when you’re coming home. So you avoid sweat leaving you with an even more chilled feeling, and it is much easier not to have to face the strong wind when you are tired.
6. Hydration always
Drinking water is essential at any time of the year. However, in the cold, people decrease the amount of fluid they consume. You do not necessarily need to drink in larger quantities, as you would have to do in the summer, but your body will need water anyway. Do not forget to ingest the liquid before, during and after the activity.
7. Have breakfast
The first meal of the day is perfectly capable of making you more willing and even warmer. Before starting your activities, eat well and have an elaborate breakfast.
8. In the latter case, use the treadmill
Running indoors is always an option if you can not tolerate the cold weather. Treadmills are good for interval training if you have difficulty knowing your pace. You end up being more prone to execute the right numbers according to your physical possibilities. It also has the advantage of not having to leave the house. On the other hand, the possibility of discouragement is great. If you choose to run home during the winter, be strong!
