On a side note, I've had cold showers everyday about the last two weeks. I started it last year but never actually committed to it. Very easy to get started when it's 30+ degrees though haha. It's funny though the change in responses to the cold water. Even when it was super hot out the shower would be uncomfortably cold and I could only last small periods under the water. Had one yesterday when it was only about 18 degrees outside and I hung out under the cold water for a few minutes with no real level of discomfort. It didn't feel warm but it didn't feel cold either.

cold showers are really good. i do them often, but just moderately cold to finish off a hot shower.

i also do intense ones (hot to very cold) the days leading up to a mile race (or a very fast race). for some reason, it seems to help me with doing something "stupid", like going from a stand still to like 4:30 min/mi pace then trying to hold on to 4:5X pace etc. it's weird but i've noticed it helps. i think it helps temporarily (for a few days) destroy some inhibition. the places I think it helps:
- just starting an insane effort
- battling in a race
- kicking hard at the end of the race

because it's a similar feeling.. it's like, you don't want to do it, but you have to. so, you don't want to turn the knob to make it very cold, but you have to. then you don't want to step into that very cold water, but you force yourself to. and then on the flipside, if you can't actually commit to it, you're not ready to step it up in a race etc. that's something i've noticed, i think it's legit.

lol.

This is actually the reason I started them. I know there's actual health benefits but the sheer challenge of dipping your head straight into a cold shower every morning is an accomplishment in itself.

Had a stomach bug on Tuesday and haven't trained since. Felt pretty good yesterday but just hit an hour of stretching to ease my way back into it.

Will train today though. Feeling pretty good.
