boy are you gonna pay.
i recall last year how beat you were midway through the gathering, after your academy time. you could be in for some true suffering come JH. and add a few beers to the mix. better you than me.
i'd say do what you can cardio-wise (but don't overdo it, you have a LOT of turns ahead). if you're in awful shape now, trying to rush yourself some fitness could very well backfire and have your arss kicked before it would've been otherwise.
cut back on the merlot and powerwalk a hill or two. take a healthy bike ride.
i'd suggest paying very close attention to maintaining fore-aft balance all the time you're on skis. staying centered and using less force will save you a bit of pain later when things (like lactic acid) begin to accrue.
luckily, i have TWO weeks to get my sorry self a little closer to being ready.
