5 Reasons You Should Run In The Winter

Once the cold fronts roll in, people tend to hang up their running shoes. With the layer of snow on the ground it can seem like turning to the fireplace and movie screen is a better option. However, running in the winter is one of the best times to run. Here is a list of reasons to take winter training to the max.
Fresh Air
Fresh air is hard to come by when the cold air sweeps in. Running outside in the winter is a great way to incorporate a little fresh air into daily life. Training in the crisp air will refresh the body from all the sedentary winter activities.
Scenery Change
Running the same trails all summer can get boring. With a fresh layer of snow on the usual training routes the scenery becomes a whole new world. The beauty of the snow covered winter wonderland will be just the motivation any winter runner needs.
Ideal Temperature
Oddly enough, warm weather is bad for running. It increases body temperature and puts heat stress on the runner. Training in the cooler temperatures gives the body a better chance to recover than the steaming roads of summer.
Fight the Winter Weight
Everybody knows that the gingerbread houses and second helpings of mashed potatoes can rack up the scales. Running through the winter can help with shedding some of those extra pounds.
Metabolism Keeper
Training in the winter will help keep the metabolism on a schedule. Having a continuous activity for the body will regulate the way your body works. There is no limit to the benefits of winter running.
