How I feel about working out in the winter (told through gifs)

I do not like the cold. That’s why I take dressing for a winter run so seriously. These are my deep, dark thoughts about working out in the winter (or any temperature below 50 degrees).

When my alarm goes off and it’s still dark outside

How I think it’s necessary to dress to walk 5 blocks to Refine Method 


When the instructor says anything like, “summer bodies are built in the winter”


When your 6am SoulCycle is crowded in January because of New Years Resolution makers

When I run outside and forget to check the windchill


What I wear on the random day the temperature hits 50 degrees


When I finish working out and decide to sit on the couch with a light snack


When Matt asks if I want to CitiBike somewhere (even if I ran outside in the very same weather)


But on a more helpful note, here are some tips for working out in the winter. Stay warm, friends!

    Ha! Love it! Gotta say, it takes a lot to encourage me to get out there in the cold here in Ohio. I pretty much stick to my treadmill in my comfortable basement 🙂

      I totally feel you. But I am just no good left to my own devices on a treadmill.
