This afternoon I found myself sitting somewhat awkwardly on the edge of the car door frame, putting on a boot before driving away.  I did that a lot last month, exchanging the Aircast for a normal boot so I could operate the pedals in the car, then back again so I could walk, possibly with the aid of crutches.  Today was a bit different: The boots I was taking off were ski boots.  I went around the pink loop at Lapham Peak twice, the second time making an extra loop around via the connection by the butterfly garden.  The total distance was 7.5km, and while this is one of the easy loops, it does involve climbing something called "Asthma Hill."  My peak heart rate at the top of the hill was 187 the first time and 189 the second.  Proper exercise indeed.  The right foot isn't quite right yet, but clearly it's getting better.  Heck, by the end of the skiing both legs were so tired it was hard to say if the right was worse than the left.
