Oh my goodness friends - we just had our first below zero windchill day here in Minneapolis! BRRRR! I am an outdoor dog walker and despite the fact that I am NOT a fan of cold weather -I've adopted a few tricks to make it possible for me to continue outside power walking in the winter. I have rallied a group of girlfriends and we hold each other accountable to get outside on the weekends. During the week - I use the outdoor walk to catchup on a podcast. With it being so dark outside early- I try to take a break in the morning or the lunch to power walk. Also - my dog loves the cold and looks at me with sad eyes to get outside!
I also know that my must have item is POLAR FLEECE leggings. I am here to tell you they are a game changer. They are 3 times warmer !! I also always use hand warmers and I layer up!!
Nonetheless-I'd love to hear any tips and tricks you all have - How do you stay motivated? What do you wear? Do share below - we cold weather warriors need to help each other out!
OMG @Chris_F you lost me at below 0!! Lol! I'd love some tips too.. I walked out last night to head to the gym in the rain with my umbrella... I crossed the street and got 1/4 of the way there when my umbrella died in the wind and the rain was WAY more aggressive than I had planned. I turned around and came back. It was late, I was cold, upset, and over it. So, I ordered a pizza instead. It's called living 😆Needless to say, if anyone has any STRONG umbrella suggestions out there, please share! I feel like there is never a good one for the bay area wind!
