I hope everyone had a great St. Patty’s day weekend! Mine was spent packing and saying goodbye, not fun, but it’s gotta be done. Now on to more adventures in Denver… the sis and I had a couple really fun outdoor excursions. After we ate at Snooze, we drove out to Red Rocks to run the steps. That’s when the altitude first hit me, it felt pretty hard climbing the stairs to start the run.
We ran the bleachers, starting at the top. We ran 2 lengths and walked 1, stopping halfway through the walking portion to do either lunges, pushups, or dips. Man it was tiring!
But I felt so accomplished at the end! After we finished we walked around a bit more, taking pictures on stage. It would be amazing to see a concert here.
The next day we went skiing at Copper Mountain. I’m a skiing newbie, only skiing once when I was 13 years old. My sis taught me some basics and we were off.
Before lunch I was doing so well! I only fell a couple times and I really felt like I was getting the hang of it.
Then after lunch I thought it would be fun to try the “high green” which was at the top of the mountain. What a mistake! I fell, cried, wanted to disappear. It took me over an hour to get down. I felt like it was a lot steeper than the “easy green”. I lost control a lot… I think I need to learn how to turn more efficiently. But, what sucks is that I can’t be there often enough to learn, hopefully next time I can go skiing for at least a few days and take a lesson.
Do you ski or snowboard? Any tips?
