Leading up to the last couple of seasons, around about this time, I’ve reported that I really need to get fit ready for snowboarding… I even remember saying something like a trend is developing. Well, I’m pleased to say that I won’t be repeating that this time around.
Ciara and I have done a decent amount of running over the summer, and for the last couple of months, we’ve been hitting the gym, 3 times a week. I’m not gonna say that I’m in the best shape ever, I’m not even close. To be honest, the running and gym sessions have been aimed at getting back in shape.
But at least this time around it’s not reactionary to the approaching season. It’s been a more consistent effort.
Apart from not wanting to miss out on any potential time on the hill, someone recently made a good point that fatigue is a big factor in trick failure. So whilst I’m not in great shape, yet, I’m also not worried about leaving it too late. I’m already on the right track and going strong.
How about you? Anyone afraid that they’re gonna have aching legs? Or are you confident that you’ll be shredding from first lift to last and still have the energy for a few pints?
