Oops, sorry for the delay!

I'm not really sure what I should be doing to get in shape for skiing, but I definitely need to do something to kick it up a gear. I walk to and from work (I think it's about 2.2 or 2.3 km each way) Monday through Friday, and I've been jogging for about 20 minutes each night, along with some stretches, crunches, and girly push-ups. I don't have gym access, but I've heard tell of a free public swimming pool and a free ice skating rink in my area. Not sure that I'm quite ready to wear a swimsuit in public yet, though.

I honestly have no idea how much effort cross-country skiing takes (or what hitherto-unknown muscles will start to ache once I try it), so I'm not quite sure how to prepare, but it sounds like fun! A coworker invited me on a skiing holiday sometime in February or March, and I'd like to tag along without completely embarrassing myself.

When will your holiday in Banff be?
