Consequences of Snowboarding

Friday night reservations at Beckta had to be cancelled at the last minute as my headache from snowboarding on Thursday evening got progressively worse. What was to be a lovely evening of delicious food and great wine by some gussied-up newlyweds (by the way, how long do we get to keep that title?) quickly descended into therapeutic bathing, baggy pyjamas, Greek on Wheels and bed by 9:30.

Saturday morning, thinking the worst of the pain would be over, I jumped out of bed to answer the phone only to be shocked at the pain in my neck. My neck!??! I was expecting legs. In fact, my teacher Lael, warned me about my calves and tailbone, neither of which have made a single peep since the first night.

Still this morning, a full 3 and a half days later, I have pain in the following locations: neck, shoulders, chest and forearms.

I guess that means I wasn’t doing it properly, eh? The board is supposed to be strapped to your hands, right?

Still can’t wait for the next time!

K, I’m back.
Had a stiff neck as well from the head bash at the bottom of the run, but was ok by Saturday. My tail bone bashing has taken a little longer to feel better. It’s mostly ok now – but on Friday and Saturday I was walking like an old lady, which is ok, ’cause in Florida I fit right in!
I’m actually still ready for another snowboarding experience even though my toes were just in the ocean a few days ago (Spring is sooo close).
Talk to you tomorrow!
