I have been feeling really under the weather. I have had a cold/flu thing for just over a week. I ran my long run of 10 miles last Sunday, and I probably shouldn’t have even done that. I haven’t run since then.
However, I have been skiing all week. I’m in California, so close to Tahoe, and the snow has been so good that I’ve just had to go up. Well, I say skiing, but I snowboard. And it’s been amazing!!
The last time I went snowboarding was 3 years ago. I remember snowboarding down long runs and my quads burning. I would even have to stop a few times at the end of the day to rest, before I could make it down the mountain. Now, my legs don’t hurt at all! I don’t know if it’s from running or doing other exercises, but whatever the reason it shows just how much my quads have built up strength. I am excited about this. It shows that I am getting stronger. And this is going to push me to continue not only to run, but to keep up on plyometric exercises.
