    incorporate some weight lifting too. Doesn't have to be too heavy. twice a week or so should do it.

    Never abandon your strength..

    This might be a little hardcore for now given your situation but I longboard 3 miles round trip penn station to job site everyday, then 4-5 days a week I hike the hills by me 3-5 miles depending on the route with lots of incline and decline carrying a 20lb kettlebell.

    Carrying one forces you to engage all your core muscles to maintain a proper posture and stride while also blasting all your leg muscles. Switch hands every half mile, you can do it more often if you’re dominant side is way stronger than your weak side the key is to keep the intervals even though. Ive honestly found it to be the best all around workout for skiing, something to work towards.
    Keep up the walking for now till you can get to a point of walking 30 minutes without stopping at a brisk pace, then start to mix in the varying terrain and then start small with the weight.

    Agreed. You lose muscle mass every year after about 35, and it is really hard to ever get it back. That muscle helps your metabolism burn more calories.
