Cross training in the snow

Posted by danger prone Jan 14, 2009

 

How much damage would a week without training set me back? OK, I already know the answer. Probably quite a bit. But I have this amazing ability to rationalize all of my behavior including my ski vacation to Telluride, Colo.

 

 

I'm here with my husband and family for the week and we've enjoyed several days on the slopes. This is all good and I wouldn't trade it for anything. But I have to admit my training has probably suffered because of it.

 

 

I did do a little advance planning/training by working out on my rest day last Friday. Since then we've skied everyday - typically from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. with about an hour break for lunch. My husband is an incredible skier so keeping up with him means aching quads at the very least. I know I'm working my body, but I have to wonder if my training has suffered because of my little escapade.

 

 

I'd love to hear from Gale or anyone else if I should just pick up on the training where I left off or do something else?
