Slipped my mind… ~ Dean
[Ed. ~ So I forgot to post this yesterday or whenever I actually managed to get it written. How much does that rule?]
Apparently, I have been busy as the last week has flown by. I know I have been working a ton and did manage to check out a movie (Milk) on Sunday after cleaning bunny cages at the House Rabbit Society with Rach in the morning. It was quite good. Go see it immediately. I haven’t skied since last Friday though, which is a bit of a drag and today the wind is working overtime up here so I am not sure Eldora will even have the upper mountain open. Plus it will probably be scoured. I’ll keep you posted on that though.
I did break out the trainers on Saturday and hit the dreadmill at the gym. Felt pretty awful after way too much time away from regular running. I did do 5 miles at a moderate (joggy) sort of pace of 9-10-minute miles. A far cry from my standard pacing. But that’s okay. I probably shouldn’t have taken so much time off but I was hoping some of the nagging injuries I have been experiencing would go away in the interim (they haven’t). Still having problems with my psoas muscles and toes. But if these are my biggest problems in life then I have it pretty good, really.
I did get in day 20 up at A-Basin on the 2nd with Caleb. Pete and Edy came up for a few runs too. I was feeling pretty tired and beaten up at the start but got way better as the day went on and by the time we had to leave, I was skiing really pretty well. Dropping the cornice, then top rocks and even flowing a tricky little rock feature mid-way down the mountain. All in all, I am skiing pretty well.
So given today’s conditions, I may hit the gym for my lunchtime adventure instead of braving the wind at the Rock. We’ll see how things go.
