Ski day with the same crew! Did some blues with my mom in the morning and then skied with the others in the afternoon. We had some amazing runs on 7th Heaven before it got too busy. It technically had been groomed, but it had snowed/was windy so it was a manageable amount of light fluffy snow. I think something in my technique is off as my quads were getting exhausted. Definitely don't feel like I'm back to where I finished last season at technically. My new boots are feeling better, but still a little tight in the left toes. Might need to go get them punched out. Exhausted after two days of skiing, so I was very happy to have Ian S driving back.
Ski day at Whistler with Mom, Oscar, Ian S, Kate H, and her friend Sarah. There was fresh snow, which is always fun. Got some good runs on Symphony before it got too crowded. I definitely don't know how to ski powder. Fun ski day!
StrengthFit class. Working on deadlifts again. Did 100 lb for 6 reps, 120 for 4 reps, and 130 for 2 reps. It's nice to have a trainer watch as you get into heavier reps to make sure your form is okay. Oscar signed up this class too with Classpass as I suggested it might be helpful for his deadlift form when he does them on his own at the gym. Accessory exercises were rows, neutral grip DB chest press, dead bugs, and bicep curls with the bar.
Ouf, did not feel recovered from last night for this. I'll need to assess how this goes. I really like the 7:30am time slot on Wednesday, and it also is nice to be able to do a class while I'm at my volunteer shift on Tuesday night since it breaks up the 4 hours and I'm there anyways. Two classes within 13 hours might be too much though. Was glad the class was front loaded today because I didn't know how I would manage an extra tough push at the end.
