I haven’t managed a blog for the last few days, mainly due to the fact that you can only get internet in the reception area and it closes at 19:30. We have had a couple of really good days.
We did a day looking at our faults and working on what it is we are weak in. For me it is looking down hill and moving my downhill rigger backwards to allow my body to “fall” down the hill and hence the ski turn under me. This is a totally diffferent concept to how i learnt and I can do it for a while but then revert to my old pattern, which is totally opposite to what i am supposed to do.
Yesterday we went into Italy to the world cup races to watch and to ski the hill. It was ok but we didnt do much skiing and it felt odd as I am a long way from being as good as that.
Today was a solo day with me and Terry. Fram fell over his ben last night and hurt his back so the others had a day off. As it was my last day we put the slalom ski back on and went skiing to the far end of the resort and back. On many chair lifts some of them very small. The skiing was strange today, we were working on short terms. It followed Terry up a bank today and ended up doing a jump, which i landed and then fell over folding my arm backwards, I now have a very sore elbow.
I have learnt a lot over the last few days and my sking has changed lots. I am more confident as we have been skiing down black runs without thinking twice about it.
I’m off to uni next week to do the last module of my course and go back to swimming as there is no facilities for any gym or physical training.
