That was a long time since I went out for a run. Not the best weather, but when you know you are going to stuff yourself to death with good food, and have a free hour earlier in the day…. Well, you just take that hour and go for it. Hard wind that made me walk on some parts, and rain that felt like nails hitting me in the face. But it’s nice to feel alive.
The rest of the day was good food and loads of fun. Until I passed out of a food overdosis.
This is how the kids look like these days.
What a day. Zeb and Milla’s cousins arrived last night so that means so much more skiing. It looked like they went from “I do this to make mom and dad happy” to being in the zone and don’t really wanted to leave the slopes. I had to drag Zeb of the slopes.
A lot better conditions as well. Not much wind, not to cold at all (hoovering around zero) and loads of snow compared to Monday. Promising for the last days here. A week goes by soooooo fast when you’re having fun.
The photo is from the top of one of the red slopes here. Zeb (5 years young now) decided he was gonna join us. He loved it even though he dropped a ski on his first run there.
Nothing wrong with my arm today. A bit stiff but nothing else. A few rides and it went away. But there might be some internal bleeding because it hurts like #%} when I want to lean on it.
Visibility turned to zero here just before lunch as you can see from the photo. But the good news is that it started snowing in the afternoon!!!!
Nice weather you would think. Yesterday was 7°C and rain. So with the freezing overnight, it’s all ice. This one slope had snow canons on it and made it the only fun slope.
I would be reminded about 30 min later that was all ice out there. Waiting at the bottom for the kids to finish their skiing lesson for the day, I walked over to a trash bin only to find myself flat on my back halfway over. Feet went up and I landed pretty hard on my right arm. First a lightning hard shot of pain through my lower arm, then after 2 seconds I had no feeling what so ever in it. Strange and freighting but the pain came back after a minute or two. Now the only worry I have is a fracture. We will wait and see tomorrow…
This is just beautiful. And makes you feel great to go out and be able to ride a bike and soaking all this in.
What you don’t see in this kind if picture is that there was a strong wind that was pushing me for the first 30km. But then when it was dark and cold (almost 0°C) and a very strong headwind, I still had a 30km ride home.
But on the other hand, it was totally worth it. Always will be….
