steaming in the shower?

    So I've been building up my cold tolerance for a couple of weeks. I'm at the point now where I can do a 10-15 minute cold shower. I haven't used hot water in about two weeks and I've been splashing my face as much as possible. I also wear nothing but shorts and a t-shirt even though it's been as low as 45F and rainy during this period.

    Last nite while I was cold showering I noticed water vapor rising off my skin. Also no shivering during the cold shower except a little in the legs.

    Is this progress?

    I've found that the showers are much easier to get into post workout. For example after playing a soccer game or doing some weight lifting.

    Let's hear it.

    Well, I know it seems against the laws of physics, but lots of sportsman can be seen steaming in cold wet conditions - UK rugby players to name just one group.

    You should see what I look like when I get out of my 105 degree hot tub on a -20 day! I think the steam you are describing is more a function of air relative humidity, temperature and water evaporation rates. Good job, though!

    Good answers. The humidity was probably fairly high, but no different than it was during the other showers where the water wasn't vaporizing. I'm not claiming it was steam ;) That would be absurd. Still curious if others passed through this phase or not, due to curiosity.
