For most of us the weather has turned a bit cooler now, making those early morning workouts just a little harder to simply roll out of bed and go. It’s cold and dark out and let’s face it, sometimes a warm bed just seems more rewarding than those first 15 minutes out in the cold getting warmed up and ready to train.
When the cold comes, a lot of us begin to feel the aches and pains of old injuries and sore joints that remind us of the years we’ve all spent doing what we love. Once you’re outside and moving you probably think to yourself “That’s right, this is why I got out of bed”, but the first 15 minutes out there can be a pain, waiting for your legs to warm up and feel alive in the cold air.
If you have the RecoveryBoots, try using them before your workout for 15-20 minutes. This will energize the venous system to a level similar to that of a warm-up jog and get the legs ready to work out. It’s a great way to get the blood moving and force the body to start circulating blood like it would with a typical warm-up jog or spin on the bike. When you step outside, your body will thank you with legs ready for action!
Happy winter weather training to all!
