Webinar: Running In Cold Weather: Physical and Practical Considerations
Topic: Running in Cold Weather: Physical and Practical Considerations
This past winter brought the phrases “Arctic Vortex” and “Arctic Blast” into our national conversation. Frigid temperatures and crippling storms interrupted many training plans, but it does not have to interrupt your next winter training season. By understanding how the body reacts to cold weather, and how to accommodate its needs, it’s possible to continue running in almost any winter condition. Author and endurance coach Jeff Horowitz will comb through relevant research and clinical experience to keep you training through even the coldest winter’s weather. By the end of this webinar you will understand:
- the physiology of cold weather
- the body’s response and adaptation to cold weather
- course design for cold weather running
- how to adjust your biomechanics for inclement weather
- what clothing and gear you’ll need
- fueling, preparation, and recovery strategies to optimize your training in cold weather
- alternatives to outdoor running
Jeff Horowitz ran his first marathon in 1987, and fell in love with the sport. Since then, he’s run over 170 marathons and ultramarathons, completing at least one in every state and on six continents, including Antarctica. Formerly a practicing attorney, Jeff quit law to help teach adults and at-risk youth how to lead a healthier lifestyle, and to share his passion for running. He is a certified personal trainer, endurance coach, and author.
Jeff’s books include Quick Strength For Runners, Smart Marathon Training – Run Your Best Without Running Yourself Ragged, and My First 100 Marathons; 2,620 Miles With An Obsessive Runner.
