ski the himalaya
Head spinning, eyes darting backward and sitting on a giant tractor tire, I wondered how next picking up a sledgehammer was going to make me feel any better. I wasn’t roadside in the third wold, I was in a ski conditioning class in Telluride, Colorado with the Allman Brothers blaring in the background. Men and women of all ages were pumping through difficult 1-minute circuits. At that moment, hovering in a sweat-drenched haze over the precipitous center of the tire I thought to myself…”barf” but fought it back and somehow managed to jump over the stupid tire again before moving to the next station.
I ended up at this class after making my friend go to yoga. Never underestimate what your friends will get you into, if it is hard enough to shake earwax loose, it’s OK, that’s why they are your friends. After all, if the car ride we experienced in Ski the Himalayas episode 5 didn’t make me chuck it, shaking some booty and cross-fitting it up should be A-OK.
Enjoy the Episode…
