Warm-up/Cool-down/Stretch 18:00 [0]

Was supposed to do these on Saturday, but was way too busy so did it after we got home from Whistler. Mostly lower back focused, which was great because my lower back was pretty tired from skiing.

Downhill Skiing 1:00:00 [1]

My mom is visiting Vancouver/Whistler. She’s recently taken up skiing, and gave Oscar and I a day at Whistler for our Christmas presents. Little skeptical about the conditions when we were driving up as it was pouring rain and 11 degrees in Squamish. Started off at Olympic Station as Oscar is a beginner and rusty. Got rained on. Went up to the Roundhouse and stayed on beginner runs. Working a lot on my weight transfer, moving to my edge, and leaning away (down the hill), ancd round turns. Quite the range of conditions, and a lot of blustery new snow at the top. Snow was pretty good to ski on though I thought.Skiing for the top to Olympic Station was interesting as we went through about 3-4 different snow types. Was on the hill from about 9-3pm with not lot of breaks. Oscar really improved throughout the day. :) Forgot to bring my new watch to track my runs though :(

Circuit 31:30 [2]
ahr:134 max:170

Lower body strength and HIIT. Done all the required videos of week 4 (there is an optional stretching video tomorrow). Half way through! I enjoy how there are no repeat videos, it makes it much more tolerable.

I also bought a new Garmin Vivoactive HR off of Craigslist yesterday. Yay gadgets! I was looking at fancier watches, but tried to be realistic about what I would actually use it for, so decided to have this as a starting off watch for half the price instead. It has an optical HR and seems fairly multipurpose. I found out you can’t save custom workouts onto it, but I think I can probably work around that in other ways.

Strength 27:00 [1]

Lower key upper body and core body weight strength video. Nice to have a bit more of a chill day as I’m feeling a little tired. Warm up was included.

Oscar and I went to see the Cirque Du Soleil show last night. Those performers are so fit, holy moly. Pretty impressive acts and everything is executed so well!

Strength 28:00 [1]

Upper body strength with a couple of short cardio circuits. Video included warm up and cool down. My glutes are sore from yesterday, so that must mean I activated them somehow. Success!

Strength 37:00 [1]

Leg strength workout. A lot of single leg stuff which is probably good for me. Felt a bit tired today and a little sore from the running yesterday. The video included the warm up and cool down.
