    Pat - glad you are back. I assume you ski at the high speed groomfest Sun Valley. So beautiful there. Have you run into a friend of mine, Sigi Vogl?

    Rhyang - great photos - the ice looks great. Have fun in Ouray and take lots of pictures. I spent one winter ski bumming/ice climbing in Telluride so I used to climb Ouray ice back in 1989.
    Alhavel - what you are doing makes ice climbing look like a cub scout activity.

    Today -
    Didn't leave the house today.
    Garage Handcycling with magnetic trainer. 45 minutes - average heart rate 128 bpm. I did seven 2 minute intervals with 1 min. rest. Makes the workout less boring watching the clock....

      Rhyang - that is fantastic! I'd love to try that. Is hypothermia a problem? I tried rock climbing using only arms post injury, lol I didn't get very far.
      Alhavel - you have to keep us posted on the ice boat...
      and good stuff Pat
      1.5 hours snowboarding (with kneebraces & poles) today and 2 hours standing nordic skiing on friday. I can't believe it, nordic was way more enjoyable.

        Yesterday
        strength training - core, hips, gluts, quads, hamstrings
        20 min treadmill - speed 1.8km/h
        worked on stairs with physio

        I miss hiking with my dogs but I just can't manage the snow. It is still knee deep on our property and looking out my window it seems like it will be months before it is melted. I do lots of indoor activities with them but it is not the same as a good romp outside. I have flyball tonight with Kate and Rosie. that is often more of a workout than my official workout

          Alex - postholing in deep snow is a problem for everyone; that's what snowshoes are for

          SS - I just have to keep my core warm, stay hydrated and well fed; when I stop or am standing around belaying I wear an insulated jacket & mittens and have my thinner gloves for climbing inside the belay jacket; when I'm climbing I take off the jacket & mittens and put on the climbing gloves which are by now nice and warm. Really it's the same thing I did before my injury, but I need to be extra careful.

          btw I saw this over on the Paradox Sports website :

          http://www.paradoxsports.org/news.php?post=13

          "Paradox Sports is pleased to announce the second annual gathering of Gimps On Ice in Ouray Colorado on March 6th, 7th and 8th, 2009. Over the weekend 10 disabled athletes will descend on the Uncompahgre Gorge in Ouray Colorado to face the mile of vertical ice in the gorge, learning about the specialized equipment and techniques needed climb vertical waterfalls. Men and women who are missing limbs or eyes or the use of their legs will gather to challenge themselves physically and mentally and, especially to challenge the common perception that an amputee is handicapped or that a blind person must, by default, lead a second-rate life. Malcolm Daly, Executive Director and amputee, puts it succinctly: 'Ice is the great equalizer. None of us can climb it without adaptive equipment. We just go one step further.'"

          Jon - sounds like a fun time in '89 .. hard for me to imagine what climbing was like back then. I only started in 2004 myself.

            Hi Arndog!
            Yes I was injured May 2007 t4/5 complete but working hard on recovery. Can stand with walker wityh knees locked (that is a recent improvement!)
            Saw you ski? I had a lesson yesterday... have had 3 or 4 now and love it! Go once a week to an indoor ski place, will go on hols next season.

              20 mins modified core strengthening, gluts, hammies, hips. With physio we figured out that I still lack stability to do anything that rotates the lower spine or pelvis so taken that out for now.
              10 mins stretching

              Cycling - 3rd in club criterium race last night 30 mins in 35C (thats about 95F I think) heat. Have been provisionally classified for paracycling so aiming for our National road championships in May as well as Masters track championships in April.

                Rhyang - are you going with the gimps on ice or on your own?
                L2R - I didn't realize that you are famous in the Aussie cycling world. Nice.
                Claire - nice to meet you. I have skied a lot. Glad you are getting in to it. Where did you ski indoors?

                Today -
                Nordic Sitski - 2.5 hours

                  I'm definately not! Just figure there lots of things I can't do any more, so might as well take any opportunity that presents itself. It remains to be seen whether I am actually competitive, or can sustain a decent training regime without the body letting me down (bit long in the tooth to be starting this journey I think!).

                  Keep those snow/ice pictures rolling - looks like we are in for a heatwave down here.

                    Not if it means being house bound for 2 days! damn ice!

                      I shoveled my drive and the elderly couples drive across the street from me that was a hip and lower back burner later I will do my regular daily work out and stretches.

                        I remember shoveling snow - hard work !!

                        Congrats L2R !

                        Jon / Claire - sounds like fun, I am jealous on my slowshoes

                        I'm actually going to Ouray with a friend in about a week, with any luck. The only adaptive equipment I'm using is a lighter pair of ice tools -- my quarks are just too heavy to swing accurately with my left arm, at least for right now. Anyhow, I've been lusting at some of the newer leashless hardware - gear geek, sorry

                        Plus, those Gimps On Ice folks are athletes -- I'm just a hobbyist

                          Yesterday - 2.5 hour nordic sitski average hr 123
                          Today - REST

                          Rhyang - getting lowered into Ouray's raging gorge is a cool experience. It is very picturesque. Have that camera ready when you are lowered in there. We also did a fun moderate climb called "Skylight". It is up towards Yankee Boy Basin road. Back in the day !

                            I did a lot of workout recently, this week – 2-3 days, this early start of this nice week. I was at a hotel for three days (attending a conference), -well one of the nights I had an accident, felt some pressure early on, but didn’t pay any attention (like always), but during the night I wake up shitting in the whole bed, could not react getting myself to the bathroom quickly enough. So? I did “the exercise”, got up, took all the sheets to the shower and showered it to minimalilse the hotel clerk works, showered myself, all crap, plastic chair to switch over from my wheelchair into the shower in the middle of the night enough close to me, all during night, enough said. Did I manage and shine the next day? - travelling on one our own has some challenges. I bet I have had more challenges and exercises these three days then pushing some led up an down in a gym. Gym is hiding.
