Come Hell or High Water: Working Out In Spite of (Or Because of?) Hurricane Sandy
Pouring rain, below-zero temps, heat waves: Die-hard exercisers are known for working out in extreme conditions. But snow is one thing what about a category 1 hurricane? As hurricane Sandy bears down on the east coast, the most dedicated (or a little crazy?) fit folk say theyre not going to let some wind slow them down. Even if that wind is predicted to be 85-115 miles per hour.
Ill admit it: When I first got this story assignment to write about the effect of hurricane Sandy on peoples workouts, my first thought was Who cares about workouts?! Shouldnt we be asking them if theyre safe and know where the waterproof matches are?? I even felt a wee bit sheepish posting my query on Facebook to see if anyone wanted to do a short interview on how the hurricane had changed their workout plans.... [via The Great Fitness Experiment]
