Prehab

I awoke this morning to a tired sore body.  Listening to my body, as well as to the howling wind, I decided it would be a perfect day for prehab instead of skiing.  What is prehab you might ask?  It is crosstraining, which helps  prevent overuse injuries and improves overall strength and conditioning. 

I went to the Sunrise Fitness Center, and I snowshoed at the High Altitude Adventure Center.  In the woods, the wind was calm, there were flurries in the air, and the sun would peak out to brighten up the woods.  Since many of the trails were matted down from previous visitors, I took to the woods and bushwhacked much of my own trail.

 

When I finished the snowshoe, I hit the gym for some weight training and stretches.  I ended my visit in the hot tub and stretched some more.  By the time I left the fitness center, my soreness was gone and my body felt good.
