|(Getting above the clouds this morning.)|
By the middle of this past week then, I was very curious to see where the inactivity had left the status of my foot. A couple short test jogs were promising so on Friday morning I ventured up Flagstaff with Jocelyn. This had no ill effects (despite viciously exposing my severe lack of fitness), so, after nearly a month and a half, I was finally able to return to Green Mountain the last couple of days. With my body fully-rested and my mind eager, I'm really looking forward to the long, slow build in training over the next three months.
Wed- 3 miles (:25) Kitt
Thu- 5 miles (:42) Kitt
Fri- 7 miles (1:05) Flagstaff, 1500'
Easy with Jocelyn. Incredibly windy and the uphill made me nauseous for most of the climb, but the foot was very encouraging.
Sat- 10 miles (1:37) Green Mt., 2700'
Sun-10 miles (1:35) Green Mt., 2700'
A couple inches of fresh, sticky snow above 6500' did a nice job of covering up all the bullet-proof ice. Beautiful morning in the mist.
