It’s been a very long time since I was on the skis … either lack of good snow, illness, or scheduling problems, have made it hard to get out on the trails.
Today we were able to break that trend … after Ginny was done with church, we went out to Busse Wood Forest Preserve.
With both Ginny and I getting to the health club on a regular basis, we’re in pretty good condition … and it was clearly evident with our skiing. Neither of us got worn out.
It took me a bit of time to get my rhythm back, but once I did … it was pretty good.
The only down side of this outing was the temperature … it was pretty darn cold. Well, that’s kind of to be expected with winter sports … but my thumb got so cold it was hurting.
All in all, we did about 2 hours of skiing … and covered about 5 miles. Not bad for our first time out.
One of these days I want to get back out to Yellowstone in the winter … it’s absolutely beautiful there and next to zero crowds.
