I love fall weather. Just stepping outside and feeling the cool, crisp air instead of the humid stickiness of summer instantly energizes me. Now is a great time to switch up your workout routine and take advantage of the nice weather before the chill of winter sets in. There are plenty of exercises you can take outdoors, and some creative activities you can do for a good workout and some fall fun. Here are a few of my favorites:
Trail running is a great alternative to running on the roads. It can offer refreshing scenery and a softer running surface. However, this kind of terrain isn’t for everyone. Consider the rough and tough of it before hitting the trails, then you can decide: is it right for you?
By now the snow has melted from the mountaintops, which means only one thing…it’s time to go hiking! Climbing to new heights is a workout in itself. But when you want to dial up the calorie-torching benefits, you need to add a few “exercise enhancements,” as I like to call them.
With Earth Day just a week away, now is a great time to think about changes you can make to help the environment. Seemingly little steps, like bringing reusable bags to the supermarket or turning off lights when you leave a room, can have a big impact when many people take them together! If exercise is a part of your everyday life, here are some things you might do differently to conserve resources and help protect the planet.
Q: I’m just beginning to get into cycling. What accessories should I invest in?
Amy Marsh answers
A: First of all, welcome to the cycling club! Whether you’re a beginner cyclist or seasoned veteran, the most important accessory is a helmet. Once you have the bike and helmet, you’ll want to invest in a few more components that will enhance your riding experience. Note: You don’t have to spend a fortune (the bike is expensive enough!). So, I’ve narrowed it down to only the items you must have to ensure both safety and efficiency.
