Skiing is one of those that doesn't feel so intense when you're doing it, but the day after can be a killer. Happened to me with ice skating the other week - felt like mild exercise doing it, but I wanted to sleep most of the next day. Glutes were sore for half the week!

Manchester? You're not a Man U supporter are you?

Are there CrossFit facilities near where you live that you could look into? It's fantastic if you ever decide to get into it. I see you were considering looking it up online. However, I really can't imagine doing the WODs by oneself. I think that would kind of suck, not having other people suffering around you as well :lol:

TrilliumFortnight: your right, it did feel mild, but suffered next day, ice skating, ouch, they wrecked my ankles

lobsteriffic: didn't take those pics, they we're scavenged from the web

Rob PMFF: Whooo Steady on.... I'm from Liverpool and hence a Liverpool Fan.... Just visited Manchester for skiing, made extra sure no manchester united rubbed off on me lol... Yeh Been meaning to look at this crossfit thing, just been busy last couple of weeks...

Can't you do crossfit by yourself then?

Yeah, I'm sure lots of people do it alone. The main crossfit website or whatever posts the WOD so that people can do that I think. I probably wouldn't hold myself as accountable with rest periods and such if I weren't with other people doing it, and coaches. Plus a lot can be said of the encouragement you get from the other people in the "class".

And what's with Torres? Did ya'll tell him to not to a damn thing once he got to Chelsea? I was happy the blues were getting him, but talk about anti-climactic. :lol:

He's been awful, but he was playing awful at Liverpool for some time. Not too keen on Andy Carroll @ £35 million, unproved, big big gamble!
You obviously watch Premier League football in US then!

Yeah, I can't stand American football...It's so slooooow. Plus I'm a big fan of Drogba and Lampard. I usually only watch Chelsea's matches.
