Snowboarding!

I survived my weekend of snow sports! Saturday I was up on the mountain, learning to snowboard. We decided on snowboarding instead of skiing so we were all in the same beginners boat. Other than a particularly persistent calf cramp and a very cold behind, I had a great time. I had one nasty spill when getting off the lift, but most of the other falls were of the "Ok I'm going to fast I'm going to sit down now" variety. We started with a two hour lesson, which I would recommend for anyone who wants to try snowboarding. It's a lot harder than it looks!

This is me waiting my turn to try going down the bunny slope. You just can't tell how nervous I am.

Proof that I could actually stand up on the snowboard. I did get better at it, I swear!

Me and my S.O. taking a break between runs, and showing just how cool we look in our Snowboarding diggs.

Sunday we did some snow tubing, which, after snowboarding, felt like the laziest "sport" ever. I had fun though, and considering how sore I was from Snowboarding, I don't think I could have handled anything more strenuous.

I am, in fact, still sore, I'm hoping a good run at the gym today will loosen everything back up. I'm also planning on a good soak in the tub tonight, which should ease any lingering pain.

All in all I had a great time, and I'm looking forward to doing it again!

AWWWW look how cute you are!!! And you look so happy and fit and outdoorsy and like you can actually balance on a snowboard, which I swear is something I will never be able to do!

GET IN the bath, you will feel so much better. Don't forget to do extra stretches before and after the running, your body won't be as pliable if you're achey and you don't wanna hurt yourself...

TA- Yeah the hot bath helped so very very much. I did extra stretching before and after running, and other than having a migraine today, my body is back to normal ^_^
