Snowboarding IV

My third full day of snowboarding was almost as exhausting as my first.  I got my second lesson, which will probably take me all the way to becoming a ‘real’ snowboarder, one who can make turns.

The day after my second lesson and my third real day of snowboarding, I felt broken.  I felt like I had been run over by a tractor, but in a good way.

I spent almost the whole day on a green slope (not the ‘bunny’ hill).  It was nice to have some distance and slope variation for practicing, but sometimes the slope was too much, and I retreated to the ‘bunny’ hill for a while just to practice.  Good thing too, because once I got tired my legs started to give out and even though I was starting to make turns because I was tired I caught my back edge after a turn and got slammed into the mountain backwards.

First I felt my tailbone getting a refresher course on pain, then I saw stars.

But it’s all downhill from here.
