One of the great challenges faced by many of us who live in four-season climates is how to stay active and get enough healthy exercise once the temperatures start dropping. When it's cold and snowy outside, few of us have the "Just Do It" mentality of Olympic marathoner Joan Benoit, as demonstrated in this famous Nike commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqXPw_6eYZw
Joan, bless her, takes one look out the door of her Maine cottage at 5:25 a.m., sees a raging snowstorm, and goes out for her morning run anyway. But no matter how important we know it is to remain active during the cold months so that eating doesn’t become our main winter exercise routine, most of us need a little inspiration. To help out, we have compiled a list of tips to help you get your winter exercise this season.
