Wanting to workout outside

I am very conscientious about my health and physical fitness.

I don’t smoke, take any type of pharmaceuticals and rarely consume alcohol.

I am a vegetarian and prioritize good sleep and hydration habits. To keep myself in good condition, I workout for approximately an hour every day. I prefer to exercise outdoors and in the morning. Living in Plano, Texas, this is rarely possible. The local winters are shockingly cold and windy. The temperature regularly drops into the low thirties for approximately four or five months. If there is any hope of going for an outdoor run or bike ride, I delay until the temperature has heated up in the afternoon. I have also invested into cold weather gear, but it can be a challenge to get my muscles warm and flexible. The summers in Plano are brutally hot and humid. Working out when the temperature is above ninety degrees is awful. I struggle to remain properly hydrated and feel exhausted without exerting myself. In the spring and fall, there are issues with rain, sleet, wind and hail to deal with. For the majority of the year, it’s necessary to workout indoors. I have a lanai built on the back of the house that provides plenty of space. I’ve invested into a mini-trampoline, battle ropes, incline bench, free weights, yoga mat, free weights and a treadmill. However, the lanai is constructed from screens which makes temperature control impossible. I use a box fan in the summer and a portable space heater in the winter. There are still times where the sever weather in Plano forces me inside the home where I have access to heating and air conditioning.
