The countdown is on to those first few days in ski boots. Adjusting to the cold, the high altitude training and the change in intensity are almost upon us. Yesterday was an upper body blast designed to ensure shoulder health and try and keep away any pesky niggles. Looking good on the beach is just an added bonus.
Today we are back looking at the lower body. We warn you now that you may be a little stiff tomorrow so check your calendar and make sure you are not going any where that has a huge number of stairs.
