Cold Weather Running Tip

January 28 2014 | General News

Cold Weather Running/Walking TIP from the CCC Training Director Gini Davis, Physical Therapist, Crescent City Physical Therapy:

Even the most committed runner or walker might wince a little when heading out early on a frosty January or February morning – but don't let a little cold weather disrupt your training. Dress for the weather - layering is key and allows you to retain your body heat and remove clothing as the temperature increases. New materials will actually "wick" moisture and sweat away from the body, helping you stay warmer. And, remember 30% of body heat can be lost from the head and neck area, so make sure to wear a hat and gloves. If you find breathing cold air uncomfortable, wrap a scarf lightly around your neck and mouth to warm the air. 

OR, just move inside the gym to the treadmill or walkers may consider the early hours at the shopping mall. Call the mall to inquire about their early exercise hours BEFORE the stores open.
