Sorry the cold weather is hampering your training. I had to delay my swim day until today, it has been too cold before. So, I rode the bike instead on my swim day, was cold but not too cold. It must be terrible up north with the snow and cold weather, especially when you have training to do. I guess I'm spoiled. Keep up the good work!
Wow, two really cool races! The 7 mile bridge sounds incredible. I have seen pictures. I packed my races in because I have no destination race this year. I do love to run along the lake front in Chicago and in Indiana, so many of my races are just that.
