Running a Cold-Weather 5K? 3 Tips to Help Your Training, Clearview, Washington

If you are prone to winter blues, training for a 5K is a fun way to get your blood pumping, enjoy a little sunshine, and go into 2020 in healthy shape. However, it can be tricky to train when the weather doesn’t cooperate. Here are three tips for meeting your goals and how your gym can help. 

How to Prepare for a Fall Marathon

1. Dress Appropriately

Before heading out for the day to train, check the weather and the windchill. When it is cold, dress in layers and remove them as you warm up. On poor weather days when it is rainy, snowy, or windy, use the treadmill at the gym to keep on track. Consider implementing hills and valleys into the settings on the treadmill you use so the exercise experience is still a challenge. 

2. Give Yourself Time

gymWhen you work out outdoors, allow extra time for warmup, since the weather can be cold enough to make your muscles constrict naturally. If you’re concerned about making it to work, you could rush into the hardest parts of your routine and suffer an injury that could set back your progress.  

3. Integrate Cross-Training

To improve your overall physical fitness, integrate cross-training into your routine. Use the fitness classes and weights at the gym to strengthen your muscles and think about attending yoga courses to improve flexibility. Focus on multiple muscle groups as you exercise to give your training an edge.
