Truth be told, I'm really looking forward to the off-season.
I've seen my skiing technique jump a couple of levels this season, but I've hit the limits of what I can accomplish without some serious gym-work. I haven't hit the gym regularly since late 2017, and it shows. There are imbalances in my body that just aren't going to improve without weight-training and, I suspect, a true yoga practice.
Furthermore, I'm finding it hard to find much joy in skiing right now. Today was a powder day, but still, it took me a couple of hours to find the right mixture of terrain, snow and energy to have fun.
My body and mind are tired. But what choice do I have? Skip a powder day?
