Ski Fitness

I hurt. I really hurt.

I've decided to join a couple of friends skiing in the Pyrenees next month. With only three weeks to get my legs somewhat prepared for the task, I popped down to the gym for the first time in a year. My inner thigh muscles certainly did not appreciate me waking them from their slumber and have made their inadequacy very apparent. It's the same muscles that I didn't know existed until I attempted horse riding.

But as soon as I stop walking like a geriatric cowboy, I gotta get back to the gym. Here's an interesting article on which muscles you use for skiing. Here's a ski fitness workout.
