Fall Fitness: Outdoor Exercises for Cooler Weather

 

Fall Fitness: Outdoor Exercises for Cooler Weather

The fall is probably one of the best times to exercise outdoors during the year. Yes, the weather is cooler, but it’s not cold yet. Plus, the cooler weather can make it easier to go longer at whatever you do. Before it turns into full-blown winter, here are some fun outdoor exercises you should consider this fall.

Running

The first up is running. Running in the fall can be great because it’s cooler and there is the joy of fall colors. However, it can be difficult with the time changes and school being back in session. Make sure that you plan out some time for yourself to get in some running before you dread going out in the real cold.

Swimming

Most places in the United States have one last heat wave in early to mid-October. This can be the last hoorah to go to the lake or ocean and go for a swim. Swimming outdoors is a lot of fun, and you will most likely have to wait another 6-8 months before you’ll be able to swim outside again.

Field Sports

Fall is a great time to take advantage of all the field sports that are starting up – baseball, football, and more! Before it gets too cold to go outside and play in the parks (or before snow covers everything), go outside for some last fun sports on the grass and get some exercise in with friends.

Tips for Fall Exercise

Regardless of what sports or exercise you’re going to do, fall can be challenging from a logistics perspective. First, dress appropriately. This usually means layers – it can be warm at 4pm when you start playing, but freezing at 6pm once the sun is down.

Also, make sure that you are remembering to plan for the darkness. If you’re running or biking, make sure that you have reflectors and a light so that if you’re out past sundown, drivers will see you. Remember, everyone is adjusting this time of year, and more traffic accidents happen in the fall and spring than any other time.

What are your favorite ways to exercise outside during fall?

    In warmer months, my main outside activity is cycling, but when temperatures dip below 40, I start doing more walking. It’s easier for me to stay warm while walking. I enjoy shuffling through the leaves, gathering landscaping ideas from my neighbors yards and running errands while I’m out and about.

    Being in Phoenix, I look forward to Fall and cooler weather. No more waiting until 11pm when it is cool enough to walk outside or getting up at 5am before the sun starts beating. I can walk anytime during the day and especially love my lunch time excursions.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
