Running Against the Wind
by JT Johnson, on Mar 7, 2017 1:00:26 PM
Are you a runner? If so, do you check the forecast before going out on a run? As a meteorologist, I’m keenly aware of what is going on with the weather. What I didn’t realize is how much the weather impacts my workouts and performance.
Knowing current weather conditions and planning, mentally and physically, for the road ahead is the best way for any runner to deal with the weather. Don't like running when the wind is over 15 mph or in high heat or humidity? Then you need to know the weather ahead of time and plan accordingly. Wouldn't it be nice if running mobile apps could give you this information? Instead of just knowing the current conditions before you run, I envision exercise apps that could query for relevant analytics and then speak these things to the runner. It would be much more valuable to not only runners, but also all those who enjoy being outside. Read more about my thoughts on this subject in my blog, linked below.
