Rain, wind, cold temps, they're no fun. But do you still walk - or give up on your daily exercise?

If it's a bit of rain, I don't mind. I just don't want to get soaked of course.

But if I walk almost daily, even if it's just around the block for about 15 minutes, I don't want to stop and start in Spring again.

Do you walk, even with bad weather?

I like the rain, but I dunno about long walks in it. Maybe if I have the right clothing.. me and my sis walked a mile in a blizzard for fast food last year xD But rain, it seeps into your clothes more... I still enjoy walking to places in snow, and dont mind far if it isn't pouring..

Yeah I think if the wind isn't too hard, and you have umbrella, that if you can stay dry enough and have company. That maybe a 15 or 20 minute walk is doable - especially if there's hot chocolate waiting at home.

I tend not to walk if its raining, even slightly. But being asked this question I realize, I wouldn't mind walking in slight drizzle actually. Probably wouldn't run though, higher risk of slipping and falling

Heavy rain or snow then no, but cold, light yes, however it depends on how windy it is. The wind is often worse than the rain.

The winds are way too strong. It's hard to see if something's flying towards you or falling on you. And the slippery frozen floor isn't helping.

If there was no strong winds, then walking in the fields on the snow would be rather fantastic.
