What a great holiday, or as it could be alternatively known as: "Boot Camp" or at least "Adventure Holiday" Despite the Eggs Benedict in the morning and the Pinot in the evening, managed to put on just 1kg!
My PT and I had worked together to try to prepare me for this trip. I knew I would be in better shape than the year before, but I also planned to ski more and was concerned that my legs in particular would let me down. So we lunged, we stepped, we pushed all with challenging weight involvement and I was very happy with the results.
In fact it was my arms I had to be wary of, but once I figured out that I should not try to ski uphill but just pop my skis off and carry them I was fine (I know I know).
The year before - 10kgs heavier and out of condition, I even found it hard to walk around the cafes and Base with my ski boots on. This year - no worries!
It was fabulous to watch my kids all improve so rapidly - especially my middle child - who ended the holiday at level 5/6 and doing black runs!
So back to the grind and the real world now ...
