Good news. Today was the first day that I felt even close to normal since the Grand Canyon. I did 6.5 on the treadmill in 48 minutes. Not lightening fast or anything, but did get up to 8.8 mph for a while and felt pretty good. Just wanted to see if my legs would still turn over at faster than 8:30 pace!
One mile on the elip. after.
I've been re-reading the journal of John Wesley Powell since the run through the canyon. Powell was a one armed Civil War veteran who was the first down the Colorado through the canyon in the late 1860s. It's way more interesting now that I can picture most of what he describes.
