Hello weather. It was too nice yesterday in Georgia. Nice enough that I snuck in a two-a-day. Take advantage of any “unseasonably” cool weather this time of year. It’s been a three-ring at work, about to be a goat rodeo with family – I don’t think I have plans to slow down. I am sneaking in all the “me” time I can.
The cold doesn’t seem to far behind and right now I have a few rules to this in-between weather. “Stay Cool,” in the not-so-cool sense:
- Chilly Willy. I like to be slightly chilly when I start my run. If I am comfortable typically means I’ll be sweating in a half-mile.
- Turtle time. Find a lightweight, verstile shell to be your base layer. Nike Essentials Women’s Base Layer Running Shirt is a fave, but I have a lighter version as well.
- Like lyrca. Pants, top, etc., this is great for all types of weather.
- Thumbs up. Give the thumb holes in your jacket/shirt a chance. I always thought they were to help navigate your iPod or something, turns out thumb-holes keep your sleeves down and your wrists warm. I end up using it to wipe my nose, haa.
