After our long run yesterday, we were good little soldiers and took our ice bathes. Sometimes people add ice to an ice bath (hence the name) and, sure, we'd do this but I'm afraid that the ice would warm up the water.
Yeah, that's right, our water is that cold.
It's colder than ice. In fact, in the list of cold:
- Liquid Helium ~ -450 degrees Fahrenheit
- Liquid Nitrogen ~ -273 degrees Fahrenheit (approximately the temperature of the surface of Pluto)
- Freezing point of Vodka ~ -40 degrees Fahrenheit
- Our bathwater
- Ice - 32 degrees Fahrenheit
I'm guessing that the water will warm up eventually, but until them we're going to save a bunch of money on refrigeration. We've transferred all our frozen meat to the bathtub and now have cleared room in the freezer for what really counts: ice cream.
Tonight we have volleyball as we gear up for next week's playoffs. We've never won a playoff game, but we always come really close and, since this year's team is pretty decent, there's an outside chance of pulling out a win or two.
