If you live in an area where it is WINTER (cold, snow, ice, etc.) for a good portion of the year, what do you do to keep in shape throughout the winter? Besides the trainer, and besides getting outside to ride as much as possible ... I think we all do that, right?
What interesting cross-training activities do you participate in?
When I lived in Manitoba, where they had snow in the winter, I did a lot of cross country skiing and snowshoeing. Unfortunately, now that I live in Alberta, the snow either melts or blows away before I have a chance to ski on it.
I've been weightlifting every winter for the past about 17 years, and I've participated in yoga classes 3 winters recently. I'm debating about getting into pilates one of these winters.
I also walk (briskly), and run if I have access to a treadmill.
This year I've done some swimming too. I'm not an accomplished swimmer, my technique isn't very good at all. But I try.
