Running in winter: 5 tips for dressing welladmin
For running as for cross-country skiing, the “onion skin” style is preferred in winter. It’s super simple: follow these 5 steps to dress well from head to toe.
1. Wear an absorbent base
The garment closest to your body should be made with a synthetic material. This layer serves to keep you dry and warm. It’s super important not to wear cotton for this diaper.
2. Put on an insulating layer
The second layer (or middle layer) should be made of an insulating material, such as wool. This garment becomes necessary when it is very cold weather (below 20 degrees C°). It is an effective way to wick moisture away from the skin.
3. Cut the wind
To protect yourself against wind and humidity, so snow or rain, put on a last layer like a windbreaker or a raincoat. The goal is to keep you dry and let the heat out without you feeling cold.
4. Cover your hands
If you set off without your mittens or gloves, you’re going to bite your fingers after a few minutes of running. Better to put some on and store them in your closed pocket if it’s too hot.
5. Hide your ears
Often overlooked, wearing a tuque or headband is very important. It is said that we lose a lot of heat through the head; it is worth covering it well!
