The next "milestone", if you will, happens when I no longer have to modify workouts to accommodate for it. Each day for the past week, I've had to gauge about how far and how fast I can go without pushing it over the edge. For instance, I'd normally put in around 75 easy minutes today, but I'll probably tone it down to something in the 45 minute range instead. I can still tell there is some inflammation, but it's trending downward.
Damn. Talking about how I'm a gimp sucks.

I have been daydreaming about mountains a LOT lately. Combination of being gimpy and having too much time on my hands while proctoring CSAP tests - I just walk back and forth in silence for a couple hours a day. I suppose all the daydreaming will eventually spawn some new stupid activity. Actually, I KNOW it will. Tentatively looking at a seven-summit run in the Sawatch on June 17th-18th. 23 miles, 18k of gain. I'm guessing 18ish hours. (Huron/Missouri/Belford/Oxford/Harvard/Columbia/Yale) Lemme know if you're interested.
Birthdays are OK. If for no other reason, people will rally for you. Had a nice little crowd join me for $.75 tacos last night. I got to hear a bit about Brooks's "W" in Kansas.
These guys need to put out some new stuff. Can you figure out what town they speak of?
