I'm from Australia and it's the total opposite for me. SO hot. It never gets cold enough in winter to snow in Australia, well where I live in Australia that's true. Been excessively sweating for most of my day. I hope you get rid of your cough and stay warm, Have a great Day/night, whatever it is at the moment. ( I'm probably going to die from Heat stroke).

Same, but I like to exercise in places outside my comfort zone once in a while when I get the chance, it snows like once a year in the UK lol

It is only -1° here. But as you probably know the wind makes it freezing and the wind is going full throttle where I live coupled with snow = freezer.

You are clearly not a Canadian, I went to England and saw people going crazy over having about 2 inches of snow. Meanwhile we don't really care that we have over a foot at the moment. Not to mention the wind blew over some of my potted plants one time and I had to walk around putting them back up outside in said deep snow wearing only my pajamas, or in other words flannel pants and a grey t-shirt. I suppose the bare feet and the -20 temperatures were not fun but they really aren't that bad.

I'm not sick. It is called exercise induced asthma, when you exercise in cold temps your muscles can tighten and give you a cough, Once warmed its all good. :D

Seriously though, It only snows once or twice a year in England, so there is no need to prepare for the Canadian snows or anything like that. Hence why we go crazy at the slightest dusting.

Personally, I hate extreme temperatures (especially heat... never been good with lots of heat), but I, too, enjoy conditioning myself in them with certain exercises.

I actually use a gym to exercise mostly, but I often go out in fairly cold weather (cold for my area anyway, don't think it's been below 15-20F in the 6 years I've lived here) in a T-shirt and either shorts or jeans, and sandals. I don't own any vests, heh.

When I go to school though, I take a jacket for sure. Could catch all kinds of nasty stuff at school, and thus far, I usually get sick the first couple weeks of the quarter (my college goes by quarters), so I'm trying to actually stay warm for the walks around campus... But if I had my way, I'd probably just stick in a T-shirt and jeans.

Stay warm, don't get frostbite. Almost got it once... Terrifying.

To some extent it's good to test yourself, but you have to be smart and not destroy your body by "testing" it.

"Whatever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger", only applies if you're not throwing your body off bridges. Not saying you are, just saying, don't assume everything will improve you somehow, and be careful :P

@minigunman123: I know, I went inside when I realized It got too much, remember, in the wild humans used to do stuff like this as mandatory when hunting etc.. So our bodies I think can take it, I did anyways. But yer, if I stayed out for 10 mins longer I would probably be sick today.

Actually, Russians really don't mind so much. Historically, they literally rolled around in the snow naked as part of a bathhouse thing. (Evidence: The biographical piece by a HIGHLY respected historian. Book: Peter the Great)

I'm a bit disappointed TBH. I thought an actual Polar Bear was going to join in the dip with them- friendly of course :P

Also, there was a time in the late 1990's and early to mid 2000's when there was barely no snow during the winter in the U.K. Now, there is at least one major snow snap a year which lasts for at least a week or more. At first, we Brits could claim ignorance, but now, every year snow hits, and every year the country grinds to a halt. Unfortunately, my first semester exams are still on- so maybe the trend is changing.

On a lighter note, I used an air mattress to toboggan down a hill and gave a snowman a cigar ^_^
