Hi, I was wondering if you had any suggestions on how to run in the winter? I live in Canada and it's very icy and i'm afraid I may slip and injure myself.
Run during lighter/warmer hours - mid-afternoon if you can
Stay hydrated - room temp water before or during your run
Layer - wear light, breathable materials that still keep you warm (like under armour) and a running jacket/fleece. Accessorize with a hat/headband, gloves and maybe a lightweight scarf to help you breathe easier
Look for shoes with adequate traction, such as trail sneakers, to prevent slipping
Choose roads that are less prone to freezing over (like wood trails), and if nothing else, find an indoor track or treadmill
