Snow running in minus 10 degrees celsius
I’m a bit of a fitness freak and I love running in Montreal’s Mount Royal Park, all year round. People often ask me what to wear and what to do, so I decided to make a little video about it. Surviving a Quebec winter (psychologically) is all about keeping active and getting out of the house!
Keep in mind that fresh snow is safer to run on than old snow, especially if it has been compacted, like on a sidewalk or on the road. The most dangerous moment is when turning a corner on pavement.
When it’s very cold, know how far you can run before you set out. You don’t want to be caught exhausted and unable to go further. Take about 25% off the distance or time of your warm weather run to account for the fact that running in these conditions is more difficult. If you are just starting with running, you can run along the bus or métro route by your house, and that way when you can’t go further, you can just take transport home.
