24 Weeks and Snow Skiing!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’ve been cycling about 160 miles a month for the past two months plus a lot of swimming. I’ve still not tried running (jogging) but will start in a few weeks with 1/2 walk and 1/2 jog. Still using compression socks after I cycle. I did 3 days of snow skiing which was a little nerve racking but I needed to go to follow my kids (mostly beginner/intermediate runs and I’m a decent skier). Overall, the Achilles seemed fine but I could tell it took some stress. I hope everyone is doing well…..

    Well done. Skiing has been a popular topic lately around here. I spent most of December 19 and 20 in my boots on the snow taking the PSIA Level 1 exam. By noon on December 20 I was able to re-buckle my left boot the way I’ve always buckled it. That combined with the fact that I always wear compression ski socks really kept the swelling down. It is pretty funny that I’m ahead of you with skiing but way behind with cycling. I just finally got on my bike on the trainer tonight for the first time since July 27. I am quite a long way from being able to start running though.
