Stretch Marks and Cold Weather Riding
Okay, so there is no way to put this delicately. I'm fat, and in the course of getting there, I wasted little time, so I have stretch marks to go with my belly. This morning I rode in to work and the temps were -4F(-20C), with like a 20 mph headwind. While that sucked rocks, the point of my post occured when I went to shower.
When I got to the locker room, the skin on my gut was cold to the touch. When I got in the shower, I found that as I warmed up, my stretch marks turned bright red, and began to itch. So here's the question: Is this a normal thing? Did I let my torso get too cold? Any reason to worry about this sort of thing?
I know this isn't a medical forum, but I figured some of you may have similar experiences.
