*shrug* never know. I doubt a great deal of research has been done on the subject. I'll freely admit that I'm no expert in cold weather training specifically. I've read research that shows high altitude training improves VO2 max though.

Your body burns a hell of a lot more calories in a cold weather environment that in temperate weather.

If you dress properly (as not to ge frostbite in really cold environments), stay hydrated and use a little common sense - it is not bad.

Or, I can just be a spoiled brat and run on the treadmill in the nice warm workout room instead of on my dear deer trails.

But I don't think I have it in me to be a lazy bum, especially to that degree. :rolleyes:

Don't forget to rehydrate properly and moisturize if you will be out in the cold weather for a longer time.
Cool, now I have the task of clearing out my garage, you can probably see in my avatar it's kind of messy.
To sort of piggy back on these types of studies, they also have these tests showing people using some sort of hyperbolic chamber to internally cool the body temperatures like in universal soldier style. I saw a link to it on www.fark.com and it said that the process had a really dramatic and positive effect on muscle recovery and building. To the point that people could see amazingly quick returns in both strength and speed of the muscles they were using then cooling. So look for it on the paid program infomercials soon enough.
