Alternative exercise in Japan

Happy Christmas and New year!

I’m on holidays at the moment in Japan and we are now in the ski resorts so no running for me at the moment as I wouldnt brave the the roads outside here and no treadmill available but skiing is an awesome workout.

Yesterday we made a bit of a faux pas and nearly got stuck on the mountain after dark and were out for hours, but I have to say as an alternative to running, skiing is an excellent workout. We must have been out for a good 7 hours yesterday and by the end of it I felt like I had done running and body pump continuously for hours. Everything ached, but then after a good nights sleep I felt ready to go again but with slightly aching muscles.

I can’t say that skiing will ever become my number one sport of choice, it will always be running…

Happy new year!
