Dec. 20, 2011 - PRLog -- The clear autumn air and the beautiful colours of nature are the perfect conditions to go out and do the running training. The right clothing is essential - but what is the best to wear if the temperatures slightly above 0 degrees? The onion look is the perfect method.

As the name suggests, the layers of the onion in our case mean different pieces of cloths laying on each other. As a runner you should invest in proper running clothes, because a thick jacket or even a cotton sweater is totally inappropriate. It keeps you warm, but there is nothing worse than a wet sticky substance on the skin. As a basis, we can recommend a light shirt or vest which is breathable.If the temperatures is icy, a specific functional and tight underwear is recommended There must be enough space between the lower and upper layer, with the body temperature can be adequately regulated.

As undershirt a breathable, windproof and longsleeve t-shirt is the best. It is able to keep out the cold temperature but meantime let the moister escape sufficiently. Nothing is more unpleasant than an adhesive wet shirt on skin - which cools the body quickly. As a top layer, a so-called hoodie is recommended, so a jacket with a hood. These textiles must be breathable, wind and moisture proof that a few raindrops or snowflakes cannot disturb us. During the cold season the light reflectors are very important because the training is often at night, the top layer can be outfitted with light reflectors, so you will be seen by other road users.

For tights or trousers, there are several possibilities. It can be slim fit or a little dizzy but the most important is that it must be windproof and breathable.
As head and fingers cool rapidly, one should saved them with gloves, headband or hat. The sports retailers have always got special offers. As a runner, you should wear special running socks to avoid unnecessary friction resulted from sweat feet. In autumn and winter socks should also be high cut so it can adequately protect the skin from cold.
As an ambitious runner you should be equipped in time with the right cloths and if you like, in a sports shop you can get advice. Running makes fun also in the cold season but only with the right equipment.
