    Primal Fitness Outdoors in the wicked cold winter



    Since the trails haven't been packed down by the sleds yet, we can't winter mtnbike. The mountains aren't blanketed in enough snow for a decent downhill run. The lakes are as dangerous as a rabid raccoon right now, so we have turned to snowshoeing. What a blast! To top it off, when we get to the mountaintop of choice, we have been firing up our homemade backpacking stoves and cooking up tea or dark hot chocolate. Hope to cook ups some pemmican soup the next trip, might be a bit more primal! Anyone else snowshoeing?, better yet, what are you doing outside in the cold to keep exercising?

    Not quite as cold as Get Primal, but I am -not- a fan.


    15 degrees (0 with the windchill). >.<


    I am dreaming of sprinting down a beach with a machete, devouring coconuts as I go.


    Oh, is that a crab I see?


    DINNER TIME!

    Still snowing here, probably over a foot today, another foot or so tomorrow, its wicked deep now. Looks like your getting the same system Annika. Glad to see others enjoying the outside too. Snowshoed to the summit of Spruce Mtn in the blizzard and then quickly got off the top as it was crazy out. Stop on the way down for some hot dark chocolate. Got back to the house and lounging in front of the fire, just what I needed to get rid of the cabin fever!

    -17F at my house this morning. Outdoor ideas quickly cancelled and opted for the warmth of my rowing machine. Days like these are when we always start talking about moving somewhere warmer.

    Skating, snowboarding, dragging my boys on a toboggan up the hill 5 MILLION times! lol Hee hee, good thing I like flying down the hill as much as they do!


    Walking, pushing the double stroller through the snow is quite a workout as well!

    I haven&#39;t been up on the mountain yet this year. In Vermont we had a kinda slow start to winter and only had got a decent amount of snow the week before Christmas. We are making up for it this weekend!

    Sounds like you had fun Annika, snowshoeing is a blast, especially in lots of fresh powder, can&#39;t wait to get out tomorrow. Skiing will be a hoot too!

    Snowshoed again today. There was deeper fresh snow, so it was more of a workout. I love being out in the woods in the snow. Sunday: downhill skiing in fresh powder! Woo-hoo!

    Snowshoeing is such exhilarating exercise! I&#39;ve only done it a few times (I don&#39;t own any, but can rent from local nature areas), but there is something so kid-like about floating around through the snow.


    Plain old hiking around in boots is also a lot of fun. It&#39;s hard work but you warm up fast. Ice skating is another activity that&#39;s more like play, but you&#39;ll feel it in your legs if you don&#39;t do it regularly.

    Finally, I have a pair of yax trax that I can put on my shoes or boots for a winter jog. It&#39;s fun, especially in the evenings when everyone has their Christmas lights on. I LOVE winter and winter activities! I&#39;m just sad I can&#39;t snowboard while pregnant

    At work, we have a gym (and locker rooms) with trainers and wed and fri they take us outdoors for a class... we do it even in the cold. Got my polypropiline long johns.


    Generally we do one day hill sprints and one day "long" run (with some calastenics mixed in).


    Pretty good time. Most people think we&#39;re crazy going outside in the 20s... but they are out of shape and overweight

    Snowshoeing is my favorite winter exercise! I have trails in the woods beginning at my doorstep. I&#39;m not quite ambitious or buff enough to snowshoe up a mountain.
