TORONTO -- Erin Mielzynski is not a fan of heights but she still tried diving from a 10-metre tower this summer. Yeezys Aanbieding . The Canadian skier also learned how to surf last spring and took on the waves along the Kananaskis River. Mountain biking is not her forte but she was determined to give that a try too. She calls it "fear training." The slalom specialist is hoping that pushing herself outside her comfort zone during the off-season will help make her more mentally prepared on the slopes. "Our sport has to do with a lot of fear," she said Tuesday at a ski team availability. "Theres fear standing at the start. Fear of not doing enough, fear of the speed. I mean, its fast." Mielzynski, 23, competed at the 2010 Vancouver Games and has two World Cup podium appearances on her resume. In March 2012, she became the first Canadian since Betsy Clifford in 1971 to win a World Cup womens slalom race. She added a World Cup silver last season and has a shot to make a podium appearance at next years Sochi Olympics. Mielzynski hopes that fear training will help her stay calm and focused when the pressure is heightened during competition. "Its just about pushing your limits," she said. "Do one thing a day that scares you and if not, then maybe do two the next day. I think thats really important because it keeps you guessing, keeps you pushing and keeps the love of the sport alive." Mielzynski, who trains for five hours each day, felt invigorated after trying new things in the off-season. "When Im going down fast and Im avoiding rocks and things, I have to be so aware of what Im doing," she said. "Even though the fear is there and the heart rate is high, I still have to be aware. And thats the same with skiing. "The gates are coming at me so fast and I have to be aware." Mielzynski, from Guelph, Ont., competed in the season-opening giant slalom event last week in Austria but didnt advance to the second run. It was not her specialty event and she had a late start, but she still found it to be a valuable experience. She was also pleased that her mindset improved before the race and during the competition. "It seemed like training and thats what Ive been striving for for the last two years in a race," she said. "Although my results didnt show what I wanted them to, it was nice to stand in the start and (now I) feel confident going into the next races." Shes learning to feel afraid and to make sure its a positive thing. "Theres always an element of fear," she said. "It should be there. If youre totally comfortable, its not right. But you can learn ways to get around it. "Sometimes its not thinking so much, its just getting in the start, pushing out of it and dealing with whatever you have to deal with."

Johnson was released by the Titans on April 7, three days after the team informed him of the decision. The former 2,000-yard rusher met with the Jets at their facility and took a physical, according to the person who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team doesnt make player visits public. The running back attended the Knicks-Nets basketball game in Brooklyn on Tuesday night, and told reporters that his visit with the Jets "went well," but he wasnt ready to make a decision. The Jets were the first team Johnson has met with since becoming a free agent. Johnson spent six years at Tennessee and became one of the NFLs most exciting and dangerously fast running backs. The Jets are looking to add another playmaker to their backfield and envision Johnson teaming with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell. Johnson, who turns 29 in September, is only the sixth player to rush for 1,000 yards in each of his first six seasons. But there have been questions about whether hell ever be the same player who rushed for 2,006 yards in 2009, when he earned his "CJ2K" nickname. Johnson finished with 1,077 yards -- the second-lowest total of his career -- and a career-worst 3.9-yard average last season. He also rushed for 100 or more yards just twice, including the regular-season finale in which he had 127 yards to go over the 1,000-yard mark. ESPN first reported Johnsons visit with the Jets on Tuesday. While his days as a workhorse running back -- hee carried the ball more than 300 times in 2009 and 2010 -- might be over, Johnson could be the perfect complement in coach Rex Ryans backfield.

Despite the solid production, New York is still looking to improve the position with a big-time runner who could serve as a potential No. 1 back with the powerful Ivory and versatile Powell creating a three-headed backfield. The Jets also have Mike Goodson, who is dealing with legal issues and recovering from torn knee ligaments, and Alex Green. The Titans cut ties with Johnson to avoid paying the $8 million he was due for this season, along with the final three seasons left on the $53.5 million contract he signed in 2011. Johnson, who set several franchise and NFL records during his time in Tennessee, repeatedly said he wouldnt take a pay cut this off-season. That prompted the Titans to unsuccessfully explore trade options this off-season. Johnsons exit appeared inevitable when Tennessee signed Dexter McCluster to a three-year deal and re-signed Leon Washington to join Shonn Greene in the backfield. After being told of Tennessees intentions to cut him, Johnson thanked the Titans and their fans. "I have grown so much as an individual and as teammate over the past few years, and I am excited about the opportunity to bring my experience and talents to a new organization," he said in a statement. "Im looking forward to the next chapter and cant wait to contribute to my new team." ' ' '
