A Solution for Overdressing For Running!
I often make the mistake of overdressing for running and this morning was no exception. It was warm (around 15°C) but it was raining hard and the rain felt cold so I put on my running jacket.
After about 10-15 minutes I began to feel too warm with the jacket on and I didn't need it anymore. I could have taken it off and tied it around my waist but I really dislike doing that because it moves around a lot and flaps in the wind. It feels very uncomfortable to me and it takes time to do.
Then I thought of a quick solution that works so well for me that I wanted to share it with all of you.
I just unzipped my jacket and then zipped it part way up behind my back (as shown in the video below). It was a quick and effective solution and I was back to running again in seconds.
It worked perfectly. I was getting lots of air on my torso and I could pull up my sleeves if I was still too warm.My jacket wasn't swinging a lot or flapping in the wind although it does move a little across my back but not enough to be annoying.
If I got cold again, I could have my jacket back on in seconds. This was the perfect solution for me. I hope you find it helpful during those times when you overdress for running.
