Out of My Element

post #1 of 11

Its June 25 not December 25.

As I pounded the treadmill tonight all I could think about is AT bindings and BC skiing.

Running hard thinking . . . "this will all pay off at altitude."

More sweat and my legs hurt . . . got to break through the pain. Thinking . . . . Steeps will be easier. Now thinking about running form . . . CM Forward . . . stay on the ball of your feet. . .

Thinking . . . hold your form quiet upper body . . . limited motion. . .

Yep just like skiing. I'm not built for the warm weather.

Man i wish i had the inspiration or motivation to get my gluteus maximus (The largest and outermost gluteus. says websters) onto a tread mill. Instead i sit on my computer chair thinking about how id go mt.biking or running or something if it were only 10 degrees cooler, or maybe 80 degrees cooler and then i could go skiing.....hmmm......

You gotta get off the treadmill and get outside. Enjoy the fresh air and scenery, if there is any of that in Cleveland.

No way.

We don't go outside anymore in Ohio West Nile VIRUS. Can't wait for winter. Well at least all the pigeons that live in my eaves will be gone. [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

If you run fast enough, the mosquitoes can't get to you.

I say, ignore Shaker Heights and shoot for Quaker Depths. That's where your answer is, PD!

Mtn bikes/road bikes are good complements to skiing, as is true uphill and downhill hiking with a fair weight in a backpack. Add in some Fruit Booting (inline skating) and you have a summer of ski preparedness.

I love biking in the summer. I went 22 miles today with my sister in about 2 hours. It's great for the legs and the (in my case) overused gluetus maximus. Hill climbing is good for the skiing muscles and I find biking overall to be very enjoyable.
