I’m so proud of myself for running (most of) the Rancho San Antonio hiking yesterday! Two Saturdays ago I was overzealous and thought that Emili and I could run up with no problem (its less than 3 miles up, after all) but after about 5 minutes into the incline we were both totally out of breath and gave up. I made it a goal to be able to run the entire thing, thinking it’d be a nice long term goal or something… But alas, yesterday was so much easier than I expected! I “ran” for 25 minutes straight and was probably only 3-4 minutes from the vista point. Super happy! My right knee was a bit uncomfortable for the rest of the day but nowhere near as bad as two weeks ago when I was complaining about it all day and mostly chair-ridden.
Here’s to heart health and getting stronger!
