almost back to normal

so I am back only 5 weeks post knee surgery to everything I was doing before except skiing. Doc said to take about 3 more weeks before I start that up again. with the amount of snow we have had I will get in plenty of skiing this year so no loss ( other than some sweet powder days recently). I think starting next week I am also going to work in some crossfit days. I think I will start with 2 a week along side my basic base training. since I am not training fr any particular event just general fitness to get in a lot of mountain biking this summer for fun not race. I need to get a yearly plan outlined...I am wandering without focus,,,maybe I need to find a few key weekends I want to peak for not just to race but to go on some epic funrides??? need focus.

next week I will start with:

Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:
5 Pull-ups
10 Push-ups
15 Squats

but this morning I am going to go ride the bike for 30 minutes, do some light upper body and then finish by shoveling the snow off the driveway.

Just scanned thru your last few posts-- cool about the guitar. My brother gave me a guitar a while back and so far I only know how to play one song-- it is definitely a challenge, but fun. Glad to hear your knee recovery is going well. I have a knee injury right now :( I don't think I'll need surgery tho-- at least I hope not. Rest, ice, repeat. Also, I have my eye on IM Coeur d'Alene 2009 too! Well- just wanted to say hi since I've been in the tricast/blog warped zone for so long...
