I survived downhill skiing after an absence of three years! The first 5 runs down the easier hills were scary….I was actually terrified and I don’t like being terrified, I like being “Oh, whatever.” However, as I kept going I finally felt that comfort zone hit. My legs knew what to do. I was relaxing and then even exulting….I went down a few black diamond hills!!
Here is the “before” picture…..
We had a great day…the sun, the snow, the temps…everything was about as perfect as could be.
The morning runs were awesome. Then we came back, ate lunch and went back out. Going out in the afternoon my legs were like “What? More of this?” They were not happy. Muscles were not cooperating. My legs just weren’t used to that kind of work. So, it was a short afternoon for me.
No complaints. It was awesome to know I could still ski, and I will be making an effort to do it more in the future!
More pics later. I am completely wiped out and ready for an early bedtime tonight!
