If you ever want to try something new for your workouts, don't fear stepping outside of the box and skipping a swim/bike/run to do something else active that your really enjoy. This time of the year, I enjoy the ocasional drive up to Mountain High (local ski resort) to snowboard. I got into snowboarding about 5 years ago and spent 4 years in a row heading to Big Sky, Montana to ride for 5 days or so in a row. I hadn't snowboarded yet this year, so last week, I took my board in to get it waxed and the edges sharpened so I could shred the gnar on Friday.
I headed to Mt.High and had a great 4 hours. I went on the black diamond slopes a few times and left just in time for the snow to get really wet and slushy. It was almost too warm to wear the jacket I was wearing, and sometimes I went down sans gloves- which wasn't the smartest thing to do on my last run, when I touched down and scraped my hands against some really sharp, icy snow- very painful. For my birthday, I am meeting a friend up in Canada and snowboarding in Whistler for at least a day. Should be a great time.
So, my point- I was going to do a short brick on Friday morning, but instead- went snowboarding. I didn't feel bad about skipping my "workout" one bit- had a blast, and was actually sore the next day. Still sore :)
Have a wonderful week!
