It’s April and though we have not seen it yet, warm weather is just around the corner. This means many of you will be breaking the somewhat monotonous routine of running inside on the treadmill and taking your workouts outdoors. It is important to remember that although exciting, Mother Nature can also be relentless at times. When planning to perform workouts outside, here are a few helpful tips.
