Planning exercise options ahead of time can help you ensure that you get a good workout no matter what challenges come your way.

Do you have other exercise options or plans if the weather is bad?

If you tend to only exercise outdoors, what will you do if the weather is not conducive to exercising outdoors? Will you skip your workout routine completely and not do any exercise at all on that day? Do you have other exercise options?

It may be wise to plan ahead and determine how you can exercise indoors. Will you have adequate exercise equipment on hand and sufficient space for movement? These are important things to bear in mind.

You could perhaps consider storing some useful items, that you could use for exercising, in a cupboard at home. Yoga mats, skipping ropes, light weights and deflated fitness balls are easy items to store so try and store some of these or similar items that you could use.

There are many ways in which you can get fit whilst being indoors so do not despair and feel that you have no choices. You could alternatively get a workout at the gym or at an indoor swimming pool, etc.
