As an ardent outdoorsman and someone who does biology for a living, I hate to say it: I agree with him and support what he's doing. It's pretty shocking where you find balloons at: everywhere. Miles and miles and miles from civilization in remote wilderness and they're hanging in pine trees, caught up in rock formations... the mylar ones cause electrical outages and forest fires. It's really something I think the university should just reconsider without going through a lawsuit. Is releasing balloons really THAT big of a deal as far as traditions are concerned?

Just to update, I did walk the dog this afternoon. I didn't do the run workout as I'm still sore overall and my ankle still hurts. Managed to get over 10,000 steps by this evening according to my Garmin, which is my daily goal.

Thanks! I really can't imagine it until I do it. Then, when I'm doing it, I often wonder why...

That's my recovery routine right now: repeats between the couch and the IPA stash in the fridge.

I was debating on running the 3 miles round trip between my home and a nearby park that has a workout trail with outdoor workout equipment. That's where I try to build my core strength now. Not sure whether I should be doing that or not, or just let my body rest some more.

Ha! I will be walking the dog this afternoon. If work doesn't kill me first.

My knees were sore yesterday. They are fine today. I woke up this morning with significant pain in my right ankle (which, oddly enough, wasn't an issue previously). I went out for a 2.5 mile hike in the hills next to my house this morning anyway.

Thanks! I assure you, though, that if I can do it, you can do it.

Congrats on the Tough Mudder finish. I have a bit of experience regarding pains in places that you didn't know exist. Cherish them.

Thanks! And, yes, running is running. All is good. What I do is silly.
