A winter workout

Thankfifi- A winter workout-6

It can be tough enough working out in the summer let alone when you can see every breath in a tiny cloud as you run.  The best advice I ever heard was to ask yourself this – have you ever regretted a workout?  And if you’re not buying that then get a hairy dog – Mr K actually prefers to exercise in winter.  When there’s frost on the ground he literally runs round the park doing zoomies and rolls – cold is his happy place.

I was in my happy place when I discovered the activewear in Forever 21.  It spans half a floor in the Glasgow store and it’s cheap and I may have almost entirely restocked my workout drawer.  Naturally I wanted to test it out before I raved about it but I’m happy to report that the technicals are spot on too – I break a sweat when I work out (frankly if you don’t, why bother?) and I was warm and dry.

So tell me what are your tips and tricks for motivating yourself to exercise in the cold?

P.S.  Ok, ok, I don’t wear the shirt for workouts but it added colour to the shoot and you know I’m all about the plaid right now.

    I wish I looked that good when/if I get the time to work out (have an 18 month old daughter).You look fab and in very good shape might I add!

      It’s brushed cotton too so you kinda want to hug yourself when you wear it!

    The zombie apocalypse is coming, good cardio will be essential.
