A bad weather forecast

Lots of hail and rain and wind with intermittent sunshine.  Don't let the weather get in the way of your training goals - one excuse to quit can soon snowball into quitting altogether.

Use the weather to your advantage, embrace it, feel refreshed in it.  If you are running then cut your distance and go for some sprint or hill training using the wind as added resistance.  This way you can increase your workload but cut the time outside down dramatically.

Before you head out into the cold rain though - get your body nice and warm first, layer up and do some bodyweight exercises (squats, lunges, press-ups etc.) so that getting outside is refreshing rather than horrible!

A kettlebell workout in the rain and wind feels great!

When you've finished, relish in a nice hot shower and share your experience with everyone else on this group - we'll all be keen to hear how you conquered the elements!
