It's funny how as much as things change, they still remain the same. I posted this exact same topic around this time last year...with lots of gnashing of the teeth and self-flagellation about my lack of skills. Well, I completely forgot about that this year and went skiing today. For the first time all year.
The results? My legs hurt. My feet hurt. My skills are gone (but not forever). I skied like crap in the bumps and couldn't make a single good turn. Once again, I forgot how to ski. But I did ski and that was cool.
I've now realized that I'm just going to suck in November and therefore, I need to ski as much as possible during the early season so I can be on my game come December time frame on. 'Cause that's what early season skiing is for...getting the kinks out...shaking the rust off...relearning the basics...but most of all...having fun.
So I'll report back in December and regale you with my tales of awesomeness (not really, I just have a great imagination) or at least tales of competence on the slopes. But for now, I'm going to put my early season time in to shake off the rust, get my body used to moving on skis and hone the skills so I can get ready for the season.
Hope to hear some great early season reports from everyone this year!
