I actually Finally ran today. It was a slowish 2 miler, so almost not even a run, it seemed over before it started (well, so not really). I'm pleased because I managed a mile and some without getting the altitude winded feeling I've been getting, and that mile included a few little hills. I am also pleased that I actually ran in 21 degree weather, unusual for me.
Mentally I feel back on track, though physically, I know I am going to now be fighting to catch up to run Canyonlands.
I'm still doing a lot of coughing and sneezing, so I am at about say 80% but its a start. Have not yet regained any of the 5 pounds I dropped while sick so that is good too.
I hope I can put in 2-3 tomorro as well, it being a work day and all. In addition, I desperately want to get out and photograph. But of course I must do that early in the morning. The Mountains are beautiful and uplifting. I will say this, I still miss my home very very much, even my home region, but I am starting to get more comfortable with this area.
