Just a quick note...
Last spring I skied at Lutsen and then again this spring.
I think it's a good perspective shaker since I skied all the runs this year that I skied last year (plus a few) and have a good basis for comparison.
The runs are much longer there than at my home hill, although not as huge as in the mountains. Last season I frequently had to stop and regroup/catch my breath at about the halfway mark.
Only a few times would I ski an entire run. I had sore muscles, was out of breath and tuckered out much quicker than those I was skiing with... not to mention pulled up after all had been waiting for me.
This season I skied longer than most, had no muscle fatigue until the end of the day when you're supposed to, never stopped in the middle of the run and never ran out of breath.
I'm not sure how much weight I lost since last ski season, I've only been tracking since November or so of this year...
but I can tell you that the little bit of difference I can see has made HUGE leaps and bounds in my skiing.
This challenge is a valid one you guys... I dare you to see how good it feels.
