Running in Winter – Let the Snow be your Friend

We talked about the 10 Top Tips for winter running before – but why run during winter at all is the question?!

Not all of us but a lot have the opportunity during winter to enjoy the benefits of snow….Some of you might be thinking ‘Benefits, what on earth is this guy talking about?’ but snow has indeed a lot of benefits for runners.

Despite its beauty, running in the snow has similar effect to running in sand. Your foot has to work a lot more muscles to maintain a good stride, it trains you to be alert for a long period of time and overall it trains your coordination, strength and endurance.

Of course it is always a wise idea to run carefully on snow and often it helps to run on the side of a path where nobody walked or ran before as fresh snow provides a better grip.

Watch out for the top 10 winter training recommendations from running enthusiast Ironbrandon to turn winter running into a real joy!

So go out and take advantage of the winter months and be a stronger and better runner when the season starts.
