I was so excited to see snow today! Also curious how I'd feel. My brother wanted to go on a day trip to Boreal. So we woke up at 6am, left at 630, and got home around 8pm. I did all the driving! About 8 hours of it all with traffic! Boo.
Last night I had an itch to snowboard and knew it wasn't a good idea. I confirmed it by trying on my boots and stepping into my board. Bending every which way to see if it felt ok. Of course it didn't. The boot squeezing was something I'm not yet use to still. It was pretty uncomfortable.
Made it up to Boreal with my brother and immediately felt some weird tingling in my ankle. Very similar to a toothache, throbbing. However it wasn't painful, just a weird bothersome feeling.
I was just happy to be able to step in snow because I missed it so much! I was an avid snowboarding that went every year. I sure miss it! I wasn't nervous at all about slipping. I had some pretty good shoes with treads below. Even with these shoes on, it was a bit bothersome against my ankle. No pain, just a weird feeling having something so tightly around my ankle. Something to get use to. Even while wearing other boots that's close against my skin. The snow wasn't slippery. I was a very happy person! Haven't seen snow in about 2 years since the injury!
I've told my friends I've retired from snowboarding. Sad. Better to be safe.
