Day 3.005: Ski - sore

I took the day off work today and Exile #2 booked E5N1 into a day-care run by one of her fellow MOPS. With the girls at school, we were free to amuse ourselves. We went to Pineridge Cross-Country Ski Area. We were early, so after getting ourselves kitted out with rental equipment, we had a chance to try out our skis on a small flat area before our instructor arrived to give us a one hour lesson. The lesson was great - definitely time and money well spent - and equipped us well for a 4 km ski along some of the easy trails. After we came down the last big slope and headed back to the lodge I was on a complete high, wanting to go out and do some more but Exile #2 and, when I gave it a chance to get its point across, my body were ready to stop. So we did. The weather was kind to us in the end - it was getting warm, but the snow was still nice for us to ski on - I can't wait to go back and do some more, but in the mean time, I have to face up to what I expect to be a very sore morning tomorrow.

We were quite weary when this evening arrived. Exile #2 was out at the opening celebration for a shop some friends of ours are starting up nearby and I had Rock Band night to host. It is just possible we over-did it today, but hopefully a good night's sleep lies ahead and then some gentle weekend fun perhaps!


  1. that looks like big fun ! (not the band). On the way back from the beach this evening in the 20>degC heat at 9pm Kezia announced she'd like to go skiiing. perhaps we should post her over to you.

  2. Thanks for the reminder about Big Fun :-) Please send Kezia - we'll be happy to take her out to fall-over - I mean ski - in the New York snow.
