Fun and Exercise in the Snow

The days are getting longer and the weather is getting warmer . . feels like spring is just around the corner! Before we say farewell to the snow, here are some parting thoughts about winter exercise. First of all, get outside. There’s nothing like clean, crisp winter air. It’s invigorating! Second, get moving. This year, in place of my snowblower, we used a snow scoop. It’s great exercise and there’s no gasoline smell. Lastly, make outdoor activities a family affair. I promised my boys that if they helped me clear the driveway, we’d go sledding and have a snow battle. We had a lot of fun!

Exercising in the Cold

Stating the obvious, Wisconsin winters are different than Southern California winters. During my first “real” winter, I quickly learned that if I wanted to exercise outdoors, proper clothing was essential. Back in California I never owned a winter hat, a scarf, gloves, ear muffs, or wool socks. Now I own a few of each. Remember, your clothes act as insulators by trapping warm air. Just be sure to choose materials that allow sweat to pass through. Why? If your clothes can’t provide a layer of “dry” air near the skin, they will increase the amount of heat your body loses as you exercise. Nowadays it’s easy to find many moisture wicking garments from socks to shirts. And don’t forget to protect your ears (earmuffs), eyes (sunglasses or goggles), and neck (scarf). So whether you’re shoveling the driveway, snow-shoeing, or having a snowball fight, stay warm and enjoy the winter.
