Don't let winter weather freeze your exercise routine
December 17, 2008
All too often exercise routines that were diligently followed in the spring and summer months are stalled out when winter weather arrives. But you shouldn't let cold temperatures completely dissuade you from working out say two University of Minnesota exercise experts:
Stacy Ingraham, University of Minnesota School of Kinesiology exercise physiologist
Beth Lewis, University of Minnesota School of Kinesiology assistant professor
Lewis and Ingraham both agree that there are many ways to maintain your exercise regimen in the winter. Whether it's shortening your running stride to prevent injury or mall walking, there's no reason that the cold should keep you from getting your daily 30 minutes of physical activity.
