"I hurt myself today (and yesterday and the day before that), to see if I still feel. I focus on the pain...."
I can't get that song outta my head. But it's true. I've been trying to hurt myself to get ready for this silly ICUP race next week. I should probably learn how to train properly or taper or whatever but when in doubt, I end up craming in some hard efforts a couple of weeks before the race and go into it with my fingers crossed.
This morning's hurt session was a ski tour from the Spruces up Days Fork. Just over 5 miles and 2,700 vertical. Rob, the wonder twin, Dug, Steve and I met up at 5:30AM. It's a long approach with a long climb but holds some of the best snow days after a storm.
