    Did you hit the Ouray hot springs pool?
    She was actually wearing a plastic boot on one foot, and some kind of prosthesis on the other with a crampon attached to it. I took some pictures, but they didn't come out very well. It looked a lot like this though -



    No hot springs for me -- I'm just not that hedonistic

    I have been continuing on with nordic sitskiing, upright nordic skiing, snow shoeing, and crutch walking with my dog. Just did a 3.5 hour snowshoe by myself. It was 2 degrees F at 8am in Truckee this am. Burr. Did 2 toastie toe chemical warmers on my bad leg plus polarguard pants. Truckee has gotten good snow yesterday and we are in a good storm track. Finally.
    So last week I did 17 hours of aerobic stuff. A big week. I am not posting each workout cause they are beginning to be the same - Groundhog day - works for me depending on the day of course!
    I added up the sitski mileage so far this season and it is over 200 miles of double poling.
    I have 25 'ski' days in so far - looking like a good season.
    Well that is my story....
    have a good day !

      More cycling. Switched to a new training program which is really about trying to get a qualifying time on the track to be considered for paracycling world champs. I'm very apprehensive about the whole thing, its happening very quickly, but I kind of like the challenge.

      Still having a lot of hip and back pain and stiffness though - right up through the thoracic spine and into my neck (I'm 'damaged' down at L4 and below) - which seems to come from the way I walk. Not a problem at all riding but if I'm going to be lifting the training intensity I have to try and manage it. Wondering if its time to bite the bullet and get a walking stick? I've noticed if I'm walking next to my bike and leaning on it a little on the good side, my walking improves out of sight.

        This is a week's entry:
        Scrub the grout in the laundry room on hands and knees with soap and water.
        Snowshoe with poles - 3.5 hr
        Elliptical trainer -1.5 hr
        Stationary bike - 1.5 hr
        Standup nordic ski ( very limited) but psychologically great - 5 hrs - 2 times
        Sitdown nordic sitski 4 hrs - 2 times
        About 15 hours of aerobics this week. It is a lot of volume for someone in their 6th decade.
        Been neglecting stretching - mistake

          Did lift food from the refrigerator, I think. Not much I know, but did it.

            Nice work everyone ! Been so rainy here lately that I've been just doing yoga, stretching, core, etc. and going to the climbing gym / using their ellipticals.

            I used to like hiking & biking in the rain, but post-injury not so much

            Fortunately with all this rain the mountains are getting lots of snow, which is good. Sounds like some good powder days for you skiers Hoping to get up there some after the avy hazard drops down and the roads aren't so crazy ..

                    I joined a gym here in Asheville called Biltmore fitness. I am working on a Kenesis wall and doing about 8 miles on a hand bike. Workout M-F for about 2 and half hours.

                      I've been up for about an hour now, so going on 4 transfers, & pushed up a ramp
                      that is not up to code.

                        I've done nothing since the 9th. That is the longest I have gone without exercising and my body is suffering for it. I have no real excuses except that my life has been overwhelming in a more mental/emotional way the past couple weeks and that has seemed to leave me physically exhausted and I have the winter blues. Both of which I am sure would be improved by some exercise if I could just get myself to begin.

                          back work, I shook things up with rack pulls, rows, and Smith Machine Isolation behind the neck presses.

                          cardio this morning.
