I really enjoy every opportunity to carry my yoga mat out onto the deck and breathe fresh air during the workout.
Living in the northeastern part of the country, the weather is especially severe. We deal with high heat and humidity in the summers. In the winter, the temperature is normally below freezing and sometimes dips into the negative digits. The snow piles up in feet. During the fall and spring, we experience a mix of high winds, rain, sleet, freezing rain and hail. It’s nearly impossible to handle my workouts outside. I have invested into all different types of exercise attire and gear to combat the weather. I have jackets and pants that repel water and keep me dry. I have shorts and tanks that wick away moisture when I’m sweating profusely. I’ve bought insulated clothing for the chilly days. In the summer I make an effort to get up as early as possible and workout before the heat of the day. When the weather turns cooler, I often wait until midday to workout. However, it’s not safe to run when the sidewalks are icy or covered in wet leaves. It’s very unpleasant to ride my bike when it’s raining, snowing or extremely hot and muggy. I really enjoy every opportunity to carry my yoga mat out onto the deck and breathe fresh air during the workout. I find that I’m more motivated and get more benefits out of the workout when I can get outdoors. Because I’m trapped inside the majority of the time, I’ve invested in a variety of helpful equipment. I have a treadmill, stationary bike, yoga mat, set of free weights, incline bench and kettlebells at my disposal.
