Hi, I'm Marty Beene, and I'm here to talk about whether to cover up your legs after you finish running. Knowing how to dress appropriately for the conditions for the various parts of your workouts is part of the skill set of running. To some degree, this is a personal preference but it's also true that it's important to get started on the recovery from your workout, not so much to keep your muscles warm. So here are a few guidelines. If it's warmer than about 80 degrees, then enjoy that warm weather. It will feel good on your muscles when you are stretching. Now, if it's cooler than about 70 degrees, put some sweats on shortly after you finish your run for sure. You're going to want to be doing some stretching and some strength exercises so you'll want to keep your legs warm for that. It will feel better and it will be easier to do the stretching. You really want your body to start working on that recovery process because of the microscopic damage that you've done to those muscles. So try to keep the focus on that. If it's between 70 or 80 degrees, I recommend trying it both ways. If you find on the workout the next day after you've not put your sweats on that you are sore and a little bit tight, then you probably should have put your sweats on that day before. One really important thing to do is to have sweats that are dry, ready to put on after a workout in the rain. Now if you start your workout in a part like I do, it's a simple thing to stash those sweats in a backpack or a plastic bag so they are ready for you when you come back soaking wet.
