Now that winter is coming to a close, it’s time to focus on the adventures spring has in store!
I’m thinking lots of rock climbing, mountain biking, trail running, and maybe a couple of lazy days at the lake.
While skiing helps keep me strong for spring sports, I like to throw some specialized workouts in there to keep my arms and back strong for climbing, my legs strong for mountain biking, and my endurance up for running (skiing 4 miles > running 4 miles).
Here are some great workouts and ideas to get you started:
Why do I love to be outside? There are many reasons. Hiking, biking, camping, skiing, running, and climbing are all ways for me to push boundaries and find out what I am capable of. The wind in your face is enough to right all the wrongs of the day. The sense of accomplishment looking at steep incline or sheer face you just tackled is unlike anything else. The adrenaline of heights and speed is addictive. And knowing you did it with your own strength.. It’s an incomparable feeling.
Finding other people who share their love for mountains is one of my favorite things. I found this guy here.
He posts incredible views from his hikes and climbs. If this doesn’t make you want to climb a mountain, I don’t know what will.
Check out some of his posts from San Juans, CO and Snowmass Lake, CO or just scroll through his whole feed to see his adventures and accomplishments here.
Where do you guys find your favorite adventure bloggers? What motivates you to get outside? I can’t wait for the weekend!
