How obstructed?

The answer is none. None more obstructed.

My first spring there, I was sitting in a classroom with the freshly-sprouted leaves and singing warblers outside the window. I couldn't concentrate. Spring was my favorite time to be out in the woods. That's why I never went again. I still managed to graduate in four years. Did double full time my last year to get done.

You were required to attend during spring to get student tickets. I only attended spring quarter during my first and last years, so only had season tickets once.

..said my wife when she entered the kitchen

Ha!

In a sense, yes. I love being outdoors, period. Riding will be fun. I should bike more anyway as cross training. I spent a couple hundred bucks and most of the day yesterday upgrading stuff on my bike getting it ready to go. I'll be hitting up some places today that I haven't been to before.

I've had some right knee pain for awhile. An MRI showed edema in my patella (will fracture if I don't rest it), cracked cartilage behind the patella, and damage to the medial meniscus. Had to cancel the two races on my schedule. Not sure of my exact timeline for being back running again.

After my coffee is ingested, I'm heading up to the San Gabriels to ride my own bike on some fire roads at 7,000 to 8,000 feet.

As much as I loved living in Belize, I did miss seasons. Don't feel the same living in SoCal. As the man said, we have the best snow there is: the kind you drive to.

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.

Comment 09 May 2016

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.
