    I played rugby for 3 hours tonight

    stretching, sprints, stops and starts, pull backs, full court scrimmage, etc.

    and pushed around campus for an hour...many hills

    i'm wiped
    Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.

      Jon, that is Fantastic!!! I spotted a backpack in the photos, how much weight did you carry? Did you go with friends? What was hardest about using snow shoes from xc skis?

      Last week I was in Hawaii, surfed more than 8 hours over 4 days and now I haven't got any arms left to push thru the snow here in Canada ; )

        Go Ashley !

        Surf S - one liter gatorade, a pbj sandwich, warm hat, windbreaker and a camera were in the pack - couldn't have weighed more than 5 lbs.
        I didn't go with anyone, and one thing about the snowshoes is you have to keep a wider stance to avoid walking on them. Since I can't adduct my 'bad' leg, that was a bit of a challenge.

            RHYang - that is Castle Peak taken from Hawks Peak which is were I was - the top of Tahoe Donner cross country area.

            Side note - could someone help me put multiple pictures in one post?
            Very inspiring arndog - reminds me to never give give up!

                    2.5 hours nordic sitski - super sunny warm day - felt like April...
                    Here is a little video diary of today.... I threw in 2 secs of snowshoeing from yesterday
                    Sitskiing looks like fun ! Probably the only kind of skiing my neurosurgeon would approve of too I'm always jealous of the skiers while I'm trudging up Glacier Point Road on my slowshoes

                      Sitskiing is great fun and can be brutal going up hills with just arm power, it is great lat and tricep and forearm pump. Now that I can do both 'slowshoe' and sitski , I will mix 'em up and do both. I feel that when people see me snowshoeing they must think, oh, he doesn't have the ski skills to nordic ski or telemark. Of course they don't know that they are looking at a great legend {in my own mind} of a skier.
                      I can't worry what others think really, we get amazing/amusing comments while we grind up hills on arm power while sitskiing. Usually stuff like, "you are an inspiration or you must have really strong arms" . The other day someone said , "I wish I had you arm strength", I had to hold back from saying "I wish I had your legs..."
                      RhYang - why don't you put a sign on your back saying - "I am not really a klutz, the reason I am slow is that I am an incomplete quadraplegic" - That will make them them stop and show some respect
                      Today -
                      70 min crutch walk with Jasper, the dog 2.8 miles, 113 bpm avg hr, 440 ascent
                      30 min stationary bike avg hr 110
                      65 min elliptical - hard avg hr 135 bpm
                      2.5 hours total.
                      Tomorrow , I am taking a new T6 complete para to go nordic sitskiing for the first time. Me and Mark will show him. Actually, there will be 5 people in sitskiing - it may be a record for Tahoe Donner Ski Area.....

                      Nice work - RJP and fuente !

                      Here is C. Cable grinding up a big hill at Spooner Cross Country, at Tahoe...

                          Had my first ever experience handcycling today in Central Park through the Achilles Track Club. Now that my cherry has been popped, I'm being told I have to do the NYC Marathon. That's what happens when you don't sleep in and stay home.

                              Stephanareacode212,
                              Congrats on your deflowering as a handcyclist. That must be cool to do in the middle of NYC.
                              Devin, didn't you have a beautiful sunny day today? Hadn't heard from you in a while.
                              Today
                              Taught a 2 hour sitski lesson and then did 30 minutes stand up nordic following Surf Sister's lead with wide skis with climbing skins on for stability. It is a good setup. I think I could handle gradual hills now.

                                Very cool, Arndog... I love the term 'slowshoe' do you mind if I steal that one? I'm going to work my abduction to the max and then rent some ultralight women's ones. I'm very excited : )
                                Today's workout 8 hours onhill sit-ski instructors training course... with 89cm (nearly three feet) new snow in the past 24 hours. can anyone recommend a good powder ski?
