I found a cold weather exercise I can do inside. It is something that I don't normally like to do - housework. I stopped doing the spring cleaning in the spring (I would much rather be outside then) but I'm doing it now. The advantage of this on top of burning the calories is the house will look great for the holidays. Like so many other things it is just a matter of my attitude. 41
Running in reasonably cold weather helps me stay on track for my upcoming winter 5k & 10k events. Despite the cold, I love observing the ever-changing scenery and the brisk air while running outdoors. The treadmill has its place... its a back up for seriously inclement weather. As long as the ground is dry, I am willing to run in the cold.
Layering in moisture-wicking tops and bottoms definitely helps. Wearing a hat or balakava mask and gloves is also very helpful.
