If it is raining heavily, I will be less enthusiastic to go to the gym. If the weather is too hot out there, I prefer to stay at home and wait till the sun goes down first. But, in a good day with nice weather, I will take my bike and cycle outdoor. So, yes, to certain extent, weather does affect my decision to exercise.
Living in a tropical country which rains normally take place on late afternoon and stop before night time, and also partly because of my work schedule, night time currently is the best workout time for me. For the past few years, I have slowly built up the habit of working out at night.
I have a friend who jogged outdoor on rainy days with raincoat (luckily not running with umbrella). I am impressed but I have told him that it could be dangerous to do that, especially in city roads when vehicles may not be able to see him running. He finally stopped doing that after signing up a gym membership. Nowadays, I can see him having good time running on treadmill while watching television shows with the LCD screen.
I understand that some will get grumpy or becoming lazy during winter wheres summer can be too hot to run outdoor. How about you, is weather a huge factor for you when it comes to exercise?
