Tips to Transition from Cold Winter Runs to Warm Weather Runs

Tips to Transition from Cold Winter Runs to Warm Weather Runs

April 08, 2019 / by Lien Pham

This time of the year is what many runners living in those cold climate areas yearn for. With the weather warming up, you’re probably excited that you no longer must bundle up before you go for your routine runs. However, there are some precautions to take when transitioning from the cold winter weather. This is because a sudden increase in your body temperature can cause you to overheat faster.  

Stay Hydrated:

Staying hydrated during your runs will allow your body to replace the fluids and electrolytes that you might have lost while sweating. Make sure to drink lots of water before, during and especially after your run.

Start Slow:

Starting off your run with all your energy can really burn you out especially when the weather is warmer. It might be a good idea to even reduce your warm up and just focus on activating your muscles before you go for a run. Easy warms ups that don’t need a lot of energy such as stretching will allow you to save your energy while getting your muscles ready to move.
