08 Nov Top Three Benefits Of Running In The Cold
The cold weather is upon us and the temperature continues to drop day by day. Just because the weather is changing does not mean your routine should too! The cold weather isn’t as terrible for you as you may think, in fact, it’s beneficial! Take a look at the top three benefits of running in the cold below!
- It will make you stronger – When running in the cold, you will build your mental strength by enduring the cold climate along with building your courage to face mother nature and push through any obstacles she may put in your way.
- You will burn more calories – By being out in the cold your body will begin to shiver since muscle movement helps heat up the body. While running, your body will be working harder and will burn more calories to keep you warm and alive. Fun fact: running in the cold can burn up to 100 calories every 15 minutes.
- Colder weather calls for treating yourself – You can’t run in the cold without updating your gear! Cold weather calls for a shopping spree and who doesn’t love that? Stay equipped with insulated jackets and weather proof sneakers to keep you safe and warm.
