The Day Three Slump

Updated: Nov 19, 2021



My shortest blog ever ...


Your first day back on the slopes, so you want to hit the ground running. You don't want to miss a thing so you get up early, get the first lift, and ski like a mad thing all day. It feels so good!


The next day you're just a wee bit sore, but not enough to stop you.


But day three you hit the “Day Three Slump”. Your skiing seems to have got worse. Your energy levels have slumped. You hoped you'd get better, it's pretty frustrating. At the end of the week you feel you've made no improvement; got no better than last year. This is how your week may go -



I have a suggestion for you: take it easy, be patient, don't push it, do less than you might. Tomorrow do just a little bit more. On day three you'll be ready to fly; stronger, your muscle memories will have kicked-in. You'll find yourself skiing better, not worse.


At the end of the week you'll be skiing better than last year, and you won't get home feeling frustrated that your skiing is in decline (no pun intended).


Your week will go like this and end on a high -



It's a better feeling ! Worth a try ?


Until next time, keep learning, keep skiing
