We're still in the stages of recovery from the season. Focus on building back an aerobic base as well as improving core strength. Spend 3-5 days doing cardio for at least 30 minutes. This also happends to be the recommendation for cardiovascular health. In addition to the cardio, spend time strengtheing the hip flexors and stretching them out. Spending 8 hours a day in ski boots places the hips in a relatively fixed flexed state, which can ultiately lead to weakness. And we can't have that!
