In cold weather, many runners make the switch to a training in indoor running machines. Exercising indoors during the winter can help you avoid dangerous conditions, such as road frost, cold weather, and slipperiness associated with snow. However, if you do not like tape training, running in the winter outdoors can be fun, exciting and cheaper than going to a gym or buying a machine. In subzero temperatures, it is important to wear leggings that are suitable for running.
If you're going to be running outside in freezing temperatures, you should wear long leggings that reach your socks. All the skin that is exposed in these temperatures will be quickly painful when it comes into contact with the cold air. If the weather is humid or with snow, you can avoid having the plant of your wet stockings, either putting the shims inside the socks or selecting socks with a foot of the stirrup that goes under the arch of your foot, either inside or out of your socks.
Shims of different materials react differently when running in cold climates. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends using synthetic or natural fabrics designed to absorb sweat from your body. Cotton material has a tendency to remain damp with sweat moisture, during activity in cold weather and this can pose a risk of freezing. Running shoes in cold weather are insulated with a fleece material or a layer of wool that will help keep you warm. MedicalNewsToday. com recommends using shims with a material close to the skin that absorbs and an outer layer of a material resistant to wind and water.
The American Council on Exercise reports that putting on layers of winter clothing during exercise can help maintain body heat and maintain a comfortable temperature. The first time you go running in the winter, use several layers to keep warm. Once you have warmed up and you begin to sweat, you may want to eliminate some of these layers. However, it is important to have several layers of clothing available to put on again when you cool down, as you stop running. As for the leggings, you may want to wear two pairs, one on top of the other, for a part of the race or for the whole.
