Winter Workout Outfits

Holy moly, I hate the cold!  (That’s why I live in Texas).  But for two weeks each year it actually gets cold in Austin, so I have to bust out my winter workout outfits.

If it’s only so-so cold I can get away with wearing a long-sleeve shirt, fleece jacket and cute headband that covers my ears, like in this family pic from our trip to Utah.

But if it’s super cold, I throw fashion to the wind and wear as many layers as is humanly possible while still maintain movement, as is evidenced in this photo from my time on Season 1 of “American Grit”.  My friends and family like to tease me that I look like Ralphie’s little brother in “A Christmas Story” who’s wearing so many snowsuits he can’t lower his arms down.

Anyway, if I’m running in the cold or doing trail runs in the winter this is what I wear:

  • Base layer (wool blend)
  • Dry-wic long sleeve shirt
  • Fleece jacket
  • Dry-wic scarf
  • Wind-resistant, dry-wic pants
  • Wool hat
  • Gloves
  • Wool socks
  • Sneakers
Winter running clothes

And if I’m being 100% honest I’d even put on that giant jacket from American Grit if it was cold enough!  My thought is that if I get too hot I can always take off a layer.

How about you?  What’s your favorite winter workout outfit?  Post your pic with the hashtags #ShesLosingIt and #SLIMethod to join in on the Fitness Challenge.
