I wouldn't beat yourself up. Chicago weather in February is probably worse than Boston - I think you did great. I haven't even considered an indoor trainer. I don't think I would use it.

My winter challenges are my fingers and toes getting painfully cold. This year I bought some real winter cycling gloves, and improved my footwear with wool socks and I wear LLBean hiking boots. I am comfortable into the low to mid-20's, although this winter we haven't had much of that kind of weather.

Yay, made my goal. But based on weather forecast and my schedule, I may not be able to ride again until next week. Snow Tuesday, work Wednesday, rain/snow Thursday, snow Friday afternoon into Saturday.

Congrats on making your goal! Sorry to hear the weather isn't cooperating - it's starting to get nice here in North Carolina.

Are you going to kick us off with a March thread?

Thanks! You know, I meant to do that and then forgot all about it. Luckily I see Matt resumed his usual place kicking off the next month. I've been really busy and the weather has been bad, so I haven't been around. Hope to get a ride in tonight (March 3).
