Always been afraid of this. Is it true? and if not, how thick does your clothing gotta be? I just thought with all teh sweating and cold air you're just bound to catch a cold.

I would have to say no. Mostly because, in my mind, people get sick during the winter because we're all crammed together. During the summer, you want to get out. But in the winter, everyone wants to stay in. With all these people together all of the time, you're bound to get something. While going out in the cold could contribute to it, I doubt there's any truth to it. I've played ice hockey for nearly 10 years, and I haven't gotten sick directly from hockey. I figure, it's just as cold inside of an ice rink as it could be outside on a semi-cold winter day, and I sweat a ton while I play, but I don't get sick. I think you just take care of yourself, you'll be fine.

it's so much more convenient just to skip rope if the weather is too cold
