Forty miles for me on skis and 40 years for Ian. It was a big day for Ian on Saturday and we made the most of it with some family ski time in the morning at Buttermilk, followed by a quick Bowl Lap in the afternoon while my dad watched the kids. We wrapped up the day with dinner at Cache Cache in Aspen, which was pretty decadent.
I also managed to get in 40 miles of skimo training last week. My legs are starting to come around, and my fitness is getting better, which I’m noticing especially on the ascents. I need to spend a little more time skiing Highlands Bowl on my RSR race skis to get my descending legs more up to speed.
So far, I’m psyched with my early season training and fitness. Hopefully I will continue to get stronger and I’m really looking forward the rest of the race season.
