Be Prepared!

Updated: Nov 2, 2021

No, I'm not talking about the old Brownie's motto, I'm talking about Autumn running..


Now that Autumn is well and truly upon us and the clocks have gone back, we are in to dark mornings and soggy leaves underfoot.

It’s all too tempting to want to go in to hibernation when the nights draw in and temperatures start to drop but with a bit of planning ahead you can still enjoy running and exercising outdoors.. and you’ll feel so much better for getting outside, as we all know!

Here are my top tips for staying warm and staying safe:

  • Autumn can sometimes be a tricky time of year when it comes to deciding what to wear. Some days are still quite mild, whilst others make you feel like it’s already Winter.. Wear extra layers but keep them light so you can easily take them off mid run and tie them round your waist if you get too hot.

  • Look for outer layers that are waterproof yet breathable. Several brands now sell reflective clothing. I personally love my reflective jacket and leggings set from @sweatybetty. (click on the photo below to buy product from Sweaty Betty store)
