Back to work

Thursday December 17, 2015

WOW! I felt like I was hit by a truck this morning. I figured since I was starting back to work yesterday I could also go for a run. Well, I was pretty sore this morning and I think it was mostly from the run since I only went  into work yesterday for a short afternoon shift. I was just telling Jim on Monday while we were out hiking that I felt really out of shape. Now I know why…because I really am!

Things went well at work yesterday and I am confident that they will continue to go well. I just have some stiffness in the morning or when my wrist has been idle for some time. Plus the lack of full range of motion, but that should come with time.

Jim and I did a 12 mile over night hike on Monday. It was the first time since my accident that I have had a full pack on and it was pretty grueling. I have to admit the hot weather and the mosquitoes didn’t help. Plus there was no water on the trail so we both were carrying 4 liters of water each, which was probably about 10 lbs. plus all of our other gear. I have to admit I was a bit whiny. This made me commit to getting back into running. The last time I tried to run a little over 2 weeks ago my hand seemed to swell up pretty bad so I opted to wait a bit to get back into it. Now I am ready.

I was up before the sun as usual.

One of the many things in life to be thankful for…beautiful sunrises like this.

My next big adventure isn’t scheduled until August or September of next year so it may be some time before you hear from me again. Truly that is really a long time to wait so I may have to schedule something before then.
