Why is it that we as skiers think that we hop on the old board and ski like winter never happened? Must work for some people just not me! I get to the lake and am happy as the family dog to see my long lost friends that disappeared the second the aqua turned solid. Five months of football, beer pizza, chicken, and all things the government says are Bad JUJU . I'm in shape from 12 oz curls, pulling up my shorts and tying my shoes when I can see my feet . Not sure what shape I'm really in, maybe pear shape? Put on my gear and joke with MS and PJ at the dock. Gave Driver Phil 34- C1 and 22off. Drop in the water and away we go. Not around the first island and already I'm tired. I roll out and shoot the gate. Wow, those buoys are moving fast! Scramble and make the run. Somehow, Definitely not a pretty run. Stayed at 22 @ 34. Skiing is not good. MS is laughing at me and poor Heather is flinching with every turn not wanting to taste the wrath of Mr. handle. My stork legs are so out of shape my ski is hatchet chopping around every buoy. Legs are shaking like leafs. Embarrassing! Up and down the lake twice and I;'m toast. Today I'm so sore I called to rent a Hoveround. I can't even walk up or down the stairs because of thigh cramps. Shuffling around like Tim Conway. Took me an hour just to make the bathroom. Needed help with my tighty -whiteys, Can't wait for tomorrow,. I love this sport! It can only get better!
Stir vigorously then leave!
