Default Fischer Classic Skis

Nathan,

Sell me a pair of your Fischer Classic RCS skis from the last three
years... I weigh 75kg...

Famous skiers I've beaten; Juha Mieto, Michael Standmann, Boonstra and
Jevne...
Although, the Boonstra was Todd's younger brother Doug and the Jevne
was Erling's uncle Per Gunnar...

I'll second that order Jay just placed.
175 pounds on a good day.

Now I just need some money. The $800 ticket to Sweden cleaned out the
savings.

Sorry Guys,

I'm keeping those Fischers! You need to ask the guys on the Factory
Team. I'm with FSx now.

Nathan weighs around 155 pounds I believe. I figure if I can get down
to the low 160s, I can use one of his stiffer pairs of skis. I think
you're a little too big JK...

p.s. Nathan hasn't responded so I don't think he has any skis for
sale...

High school graduation 132 pounds
College graduation 145 pounds
1993 - best racing year 150 pounds
today - after three kids and 12 years of marriage 175 pounds.
I think I'll keep it at that.

By that reckoning I beat Hamilton up the (cycling) Mount Washington
Hillclimb. That would be Tyler's dad.

Hmmm.

Leaving High school, starting army service: 55 Kg
Leaving army after one year draft: 58 Kg (added 3+ Kg mucle mass probably?)

That was in 1977.

Today, 28 years and two (currently) teenaged kids later, I'm still 58.5
+/- 0.5 Kg.

My best racing year at elite level was probably around 1983, while my
best season was 4 years ago, when I was 44 years old and won all the
major races in the 40-44 age bracket.

These days I'm taking cholesterol medication due to hereditary heart
problems, and the only serious side effect (which the doctor warned me
of) was that it would make it harder to get rid of lactic acid buildup,
i.e. uphills would/could be significantly tougher.

Well, they sure are. :-(

Anyway, my father is the same size as me, and he's still, at age 73,
about 60 Kg, so I don't believe I'll ever add on too much weight.

Unless the "military experience" for a Norwegian conscript differed
greatly from that of a Finn, that probability depended very much on
what your military specialty was, didn=B4t it?:-)

A combination of increased testosterone secretion and military meals
would often result in a few extra kilograms of lean muscle mass in a
year, but a combination of the duties of, say, a company clerk and
those famous canteen doughnuts certainly could result in an observable
amount of flab in a few months.

(Please note that I=B4m more inclined to believe that you skied up and
down those mountains carrying an enormous backpack...)


Today, 28 years and two (currently) teenaged kids later, I'm still 58.5
+/- 0.5 Kg.


A few less years, but my stats are similar: 61-64-65kg.

Well, as they say: "You had your day in the limelights!" Maybe even
two:-)

BTW some people have had fairly good results with Benecol (naturally
together with a proper diet and exercise) and have been able to either
drop (naturally after consultation with their doctor) their medication
or to reduce the dosage.


Well, they sure are. :-(


Just out of curiosity (and on a general plan): should you suddenly get
an urge to become as competitive as you could be, would dropping the
medication for a short period do the trick or would your training be so
severely compromised that you=B4d still be handicapped?

Thanks, noted.

My problem was that I started with a very nearly fat-free diet, as well
as proper training 3-5 times a week. It is hard to reduce your
cholesterol levels much with diet and training from such a starting
point. :-(

I have (of course!) considered that option, and I do reduce the dosage
during the competition season, but it seems like the halving time of the
medication is quite long.

All I have read about it says very clearly that it can be very dangerous
to suddenly stop taking these drugs. :-(
