Even though it can be more difficult to get myself out the door when it's raining outside I am still able to do it. I just make sure that I layer my clothing and wear clothing made of Dri-fit material. Running in the rain can be extremely fun if you are prepared for it :)I also have a gym membership, but doing 45-60 minutes of cardio in the gym at the level of intensity that I want to do it at is nearly unbearable for me.

I don't mind the rain, but if the wind is too hard and cold I'm kinda a baby about it!

Even with the weather that we are having today, I still went out and hiked for over an hour. I'm thawing out now.

I actually love running in the rain! True Oregonian blood I guess. :)

It depends on how cold and wet it is. A lot of times I will go outside. I took a lot of walks when we were having all the snow. If I really don't want to go out then I get on my elliptical or do a DVD. I think a gym membership is a waste of my money.

If you don't have a gym membership and if it's too miserable to work out outside, I'd recommend one of the Portland Parks & Rec community centers. They've all got a nice selection of decent equipment and it's a $3 - $5 drop in fee. Not too bad if you're only going once in a while. Or swimming! That's fun and a great workout! Again, check out Portland Parks & Rec.

Do you still go outside to exercise? Or do you go to a gym, stay inside at home and exercise, or go to another place? Or do you give yourself the day off?

I usually go to the gym, but I have been trying to wean myself from it (membership expires in a month, and I don't want to spend the money to renew) so that means on pre-planned outdoor days I HAVE to go out, rain or not.
