First of all I would like to say: Welcome winter & welcome back friends!
The first real snowfall has arrived in the Northern Alps of Austria. We got spoiled with over 1 meter of cold powder snow last week. Now we are enjoying sunny blue sky days with amazing snow conditions in the higher regions. (All snow forecasts www.wepowder.com)
After two ‚rough‘ years, with a knee injury in Jan. 2013 and severe health issues since Oct. 2013, I’m looking bright into the upcoming winter. My health is a lot better now and my body is recovering well. As I suffered from muscle atrophy I had a hard time skiing and doing any sports… Still a long way to go but I am gaining strength and energy day by day!
The last 3 days I have been testing myself on the Kitzsteinhorn – Kaprun. Amazing conditions, new ski, new boots, helmet, google… but nervous about finding out in what state I really am. Sore feet as usual was the first thing I found out 🙂 Love my new stuff from Atomic was the second thing and after the first round: Skiing is what I was made for, what makes me happy! My body didn’t argue with me at all. Ok I’m not 23 anymore but after the last year it was happiness pure what I felt skiing that round! No cramps, no headache, no burning muscles, normal pulse etc. just skiing, moving, dreaming!
Let’s just say I feel good and I’m looking forward to a few fantastic winter months. A lot of nice people, good skiing, good health and progression! See you soon
