Cold weather will cause some decreased sensation in your extremities and may make it harder to detect an injury or pain while walking. Instead, visit your local mall or indoor walking track to exercise when it’s too cold outside. Tuck this tip away for colder weather! Indoor walking tracks and indoor mall walking are always good options at any time of the year!
