You know that summer is over when your officemate comes in to work with an umbrella, you find yourself craving for soup rather than ice cream, and you use an extra comforter when you sleep. Here come the cold and rainy days or, as some know, the “cuddle weather” season. There’s nothing like the sound of the rain and the accompanying cold weather to give things a lazy vibe.
But wait: how about that fitness
goal you have? Or that race you want to join? Having the rainy weather as an excuse is not acceptable. If you can’t have your usual outdoor workout, consider exercising in indoor fitness centers in Bacolod
