Working out in wet weather
Wednesday, August 21, 2013
To work out in wet weather, first you must remember that it's only water, you won't melt. Besides, you're just going to jump in a shower when you get home anyway. The hating to get wet excuse is the most common one I hear. If you hate the whole rain gear scene, reference my first comment; don't wear it, it's only water...etc.
No, you don't catch cold from getting wet, or cold. I grew up in coastal Alaska, I know this stuff. You catch cold from being in enclosed environments with lots of other people, and by wrecking your immune system with unhealthy foods and not enough exercise.
Go splash through a mud puddle in your sandals, or on your bike. Enjoy the spray you send up all over the place. Laugh out loud the way you did when you were a child. Wear your grungies, you know, the ones you're afraid to be seen in, but that feel so-o-o comfortable you just can't get rid of them.
