full fenders with added skirts will greatly reduce the amount of water to the feet, legs, and back. is the only way to stay dry....sort of.

Other times I'll just wear knee warmers and use lots of vasoline all over my legs to keep the water out. My feet get wet and cold even if I'm wearing booties. The water runs down my legs into my shoes.
Ps. I stayed indoor this AM and had a "nice" little 1:45 computrainer work-out.( An hour in zone 2, and then the dreaded Mogul Bismark lap. All of it was in zone 5, except the last 3/4 mile, which was at max.) You can't do that outside, this time of year.

...and why are you doing it INSIDE at this time of year? You training for something in Jan?
