Though I’m sure most of you have been reading all the OTHER skier blogs about springtime-funtime, I still figure I’ll pitch in my two cents on this our one month of leisure. I ended my season a bit earlier than expected; following a dismal slew of results in Europe I opted to skip SuperTour Finals in Maine and concentrate on getting some rest in, then try and get a head start on spring volume. After a week of re-adjustment back in the states, I headed south to reunite with a group of close college friends in San Francisco. It was my first time in the Bay Area and I was shown a great time, indeed. We spent the week kayaking the South Fork of the American river, eating delicious ethnic cuisine, running the vast acres of parkland in the city and sampling the hoppin’ urban nightlife, something which I must admit the Methow sorely lacks.br /br /Another week at home and I again packed a bag and left, this time heading east to Missoula to help my very pregnant sister move out of her current home in anticipation of a relocation to eastern Montana. While it was less of a vacation than San Fran, it was still great to see the sis and family and spend some quality time with them and two close family friends over good food and wine.br /br /Back in the valley again for a few days before leaving AGAIN, this time (three days ago) for Bend, to give company to my friend and esteemed ultrarunner/massage therapist Alison Hanks, who competed today in the Peterson Ridge Rumble 60k race. Held in Sisters, Oregon the race allowed Alison to bring along her young dog Nikki for the run. I took the opportunity to hike Black Butte with a couple of friends before returning to cheer Alison to the finish.br /br /Tomorrow’s plan includes a morning of sport climbing at Smith Rocks before heading back to the Methow. Throughout this whole “vacation” period I’ve been slowly building up my running hours and trying to get my fitness back to a baseline with long, very easy run/hikes in hilly country. One of the strongest aspects of our training over the last few years has been muscular endurance, and I feel the best way to get that process started is by logging a lot of vertical feet over the spring months in anticipation of more focused training in the summer and fall.br /br /Stay tuned for another year of MOD’s dryland season adventures!div class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2910103639238326543-7476166186639109406?l=methowolympicdevelopment.blogspot.com’ alt=” //div
