      Yes, looks good. The carry especially turns out to be one of the best exercises, a research article I read a few weeks ago was saying.

      I couldn't help thinking about all my Canadian DM friends on Friday when the janitor in our building remarked that the temperatures would be down to -10C. "We'll feel like we're in Canada," she said, clearly shocked at the prospect. "Yes," I almost replied. "In summer." ;-)

      @Pierre- it's certainly lovely right now for skating, but the weather can change at any moment and they close the canal, as you well know... @Douglas- other than skating there's really no reason to be here in the winter. unless of course you enjoy -30C temps and possible frostbite. ;)
