Health Tip: Running When the Weather Gets Colder

Posted October 12, 2017

(HealthDay News) -- Some runners find that the onset of colder weather means putting their running shoes away and moving their workouts to an indoor treadmill.

It doesn't have to be that way, says the American Podiatric Medical Association.

Here are the group's suggestions for running outdoors once the weather turns colder:
  • Wear warm, light-weight, moisture-wicking clothing -- including hat and gloves -- to keep yourself warm and dry.
  • Shorten your stride to increase your stability and help prevent slipping on ice.
  • Stretch before and after every run to make sure your muscles are warmed up.
  • Don't wear summer-appropriate footwear in winter. Examples include flip-flops and sandals.
  • If your kids are runners, don't buy shoes or boots that are too large, thinking you'll get more than one season out of them. Footwear should always fit properly from the get-go.
