I started running last year and I have to say it really increased my endurance and speed. We also ice skate during the week sometimes after work, it helps train the same ankle muscles.

The hardwood is great- just put on some slippery sox and slide around- it's just like skiing! emoticon

Oh my!!!

I have been on the lookout for ski and snowboard 'dryland' or off season workouts that we can focus on.

Much of the information that I'm seeing recommends cross training with things like hiking, skating, mountain biking and the like.

(see skiingsnowboarding.suite101.com/arti

or

ountain-bike-your-way-better-turns-nR>ext-season
for example.)

My fear of speed and steep has had me wondering if there were any off season things I could do to help me once I get back on the slopes and one of the posts suggested a bike... on a steep... forget the climb. (Does just the sound of that make anyone else nervous?)

What have you guys been doing to keep your groove going so far in the off season? I went with installing hardwood flooring, but am guessing that is not a good long term solution seeing as all my floors are done now.

My hilly hikes seem to be keeping me working into a sweat, but am curious to hear what else you guys have found to keep you motivated.
