After a failed attempt at meeting other runners and being social this morning I did my normal PT running routine from home later in the day (post-pancakes and Lukas' tennis).

I went with increasing loop lengths today: PT exercises + 1km loop + PT + 1.5km + PT + 1.7km. I wasn't particularly looking forward to running because the last few runs have been more like trudges and it was depressing. Today, however, I was able to do something I would actually call running and it felt pretty good. I wore the brace and still had to concentrate on what I was doing but I didn't have to stop at all on any of the loops and I did feel like I was actually running. Very little discomfort. This is good!

The downside is that it is almost April and at this rate I don't think I'll be ready for harder running or trail adventures within the month. I have accepted slow, slow progress and am really hoping to be able to run hard and orienteer, etc., by October or so, maybe even for some kind of national event?

Hiking 45:00 [3] 2.0 mi (22:30 / mi)
shoes: Brock (Terraultra G 260)

Afternoon outing to Sabino Canyon with Lukas. My brilliant plan to park in the overflow lot and hike from there was, indeed, brilliant—Lukas cranked along at something approaching 4 or 5x his normal pace. It's not much shorter to go this way but there's a lot more (interesting) trail and a lot less tram road.

We ended up below Sabino Dam playing in and around the water for a long time, right up against shadow/cold. This was a good outing for in that I don't recall any movements up or down or around to be problematic while walking, and I didn't have to shorten my stride or anything.

Chilling below Sabino Dam:
