1. CHOOSE YOUR TRAINING ATTIRE CAREFULLY.
Might sound self-obvious but this is a critical consideration to help reduce the risk of injury, improve the quality of your session and ensure that you remain comfortable throughout.
2. BE SENSIBLE IN YOUR CHOICE OF TRAINING LOCATION.
Running or cycling on the roads in sub zero temperatures is any extremely risky business given the potential for black ice. Running on frozen grass also presents perils as every divet can mean a rolled ankle. Loose chip gravel trails, an all weather surface or any form of indoor facility are your best options.
3. BE CAUTIOUS WITH SPEED.
Muscle temperatures are lower and muscle contractions take longer in cold weather. Therefore, the risk of injury from speed training is significantly higher in cold weather than it is in normal conditions. Moreover, when the mercury reduces to a certain point, speed training may be of little benefit.
