Inner coach

My inner coach is pushing me hard right now. I am hoping to be at 900 000 ft when I head to Chile, but it will require 4 more substantial days. The last two days I headed out to a nice 1400 foot creamy snow patch and pounded some laps, 12000 ft and then 13000ft today. Right now its simply about the vertical/physical challenge, not about exploration. But I must say I am delightfully surprised at how fun the skiing is, its not powder by any means but it is fast and carveable.

    I’ve met that coach before, he can be a real jerk! Keep it up though, the powder turns on the bottom of the world are just around the corner!

    I’m sure a goal of this magnitude can be difficult at times but don’t concentrate too much on the goal at the expense of the journey. Enjoyment of climbing and skiing wonderful mountains is the reason for the goal and it will be achieved in an instant….the journey is 365 days.
