Dave and I went for my longest run I’ve ever done over the weekend, and it felt so good–this cool weather we’ve been getting lately made it feel so much easier! It got me thinking, though–as much as I love this time of year for outdoor workouts, it can be kind of tricky to figure out what to wear. I know a lot of people layer up and that works well for them, but I hate carrying anything when I’m running, so I headed to some of my favorite workout attire sources to look for alternatives. Here’s what I have my eye on!
I read once that ideally, you should feel a little chilly when you head outside for a workout, since you’ll warm up so much once you get moving. I love the idea of a vest over a long sleeve shirt or a lightweight hoodie and leggings for the transitional days ahead. I’m also a big fan of that reflective headband, especially for after daylight savings when it’s often dark by the time I head outside. Safety first :)
I have those sunglasses and leggings in particular on my Christmas list, and after finally settling on the slate color, I’m getting a new FitBit soon (the first one lasted about 48 hours–do NOT get the Tory Burch bands. They fall off!). If you use one, I’d love to hear how you like it!
What do you wear to work out outside during transitional months? Are there any must-haves that I missed?
