Winter Running Tips for Masochists

Optimize Your Route

If you choose to run during winter: 

  • Avoid high-snow areas or routes with parallel streets, as it can expose you to sudden cold. 
  • Avoid areas with street puddles, and do not run near the transit route of buses, which can splash you with cold water suddenly.
  • Try to run when there is sufficient daylight. This helps avoid any tripping or falling.

  • If it is snowing, avoid large puddles and slippery surfaces.

Key Ideas

Running in the Winters

Winter is the peak season for fun activities like skiing, snowboarding, ice climbing, ice skating, curling, and sledding. But some people prefer to pursue running during this time.

Though it may not seem fun (getting wet, getting cold, having your extremities go numb from cold, etc) if you follow some safety and health guidelines, it may still be a rewarding activity.

Your Clothing and Accessories

When running in the wintertime:

  • Wear long-sleeve tees or light jacket, and gloves.
  • Take care of your clothing layers so that you can sweat without it bothering you in the cold.
  • Wear MicroSpikes if there is snow.
  • Carry a water bottle, one that doesn't leak.

    Thermogenesis

    A cold body uses more energy to keep itself warm than a warm body.

    When we are cold, we shiver — the muscles involuntary contract to generate warmth. The body may also activate "brown fat", a...

    Exercise and heat

    The processes of thermogenesis only kick in to keep you warm when you are truly cold. Exercising alone may generate enough heat that your body wouldn't burn any extra calories through shivering and brown fat.

    The best way to use the cold to burn more calories would be not to exercise while you're outdoors or to exercise in light enough clothes in subzero temperatures.

    Physical activity and energy burn

    Physical activity only makes up a small portion of your total energy burn. Percentages of calories you burn off in a day:

    • 60%- 80% account for energy used for basic functioning when the body is at rest.
    • 10% of energy is used to break down food.
    • 10% - 30% of energy is used during physical activity, of which exercise is only a subset.
    • Thermogenesis accounts for less than 10% of your total energy expenditure.

    Minimalism

    It's the idea that by owning less, we free up the time, energy, and money to get the most out of life. The more intentional we are about what we keep, the freer we are to seek fulfillment.

    Reasons For A Minimalist Closet

    • Tidier closet: you won’t have to dig through items you don’t wear
    • Increased confidence: if all your clothes are your best, you feel good no matter what you put on
    • More time and money: being satisfied with your wardrobe means shopping less so you can use your time and cash on more important things
    • Positive environmental impact: by investing in long-wear clothing, instead of fast fashion, you help prevent waste.

    Minimalist Vs Capsule Wardrobe

    Capsule wardrobes are a subsection of minimalist wardrobes that limit how many items of clothing you buy each season. Most capsule wardrobes have 30 items or less.

    Minimalist wardrobes are more flexible. There is no set number of items as long as you wear all of them – and they bring you joy.

    Don’t Let Your Water Bottle Freeze

    Arctic explorers would carry their water bottles under their coats, on the ridge between their shoulders, right at the bases of their heads. That would keep it from melting without getting in the way of other stuff they had to carry.

    They would also not drink their bottles all the way empty. Leaving a little water inside kept the refill from freezing.

    Don’t Eat Snow, If Possible

    Your body takes a lot of energy away from maintaining your core temperature in order to melt snow, so avoid it unless you are dehydrating.
