we've been running every day, taking advantage of our beautiful foothills and mountains.
first thing on my training list: get my mountain, high-altitude lungs back after a summer
at much lower altitudes. every morning seems to be mostly about breathing.
i feel as if my legs could go and go and go, but my lungs beg me to take breaks now
and then from our steady pace--the uphill really tests my lungs and heart.
thank goodness ceej is good at running circles around me. i probably have to take breaks and walk
one or two times each time we go out. i'm hoping that by next week i won't have to stop
so much. fingers crossed.
yesterday i slowly started introducing some weight-training...which is totally bizarre and strange to me.
but i figure, since this 30-year-old body wants to be just as healthy when it's 80-years-old i need to help it get stronger so that my activities can be done safer (and easier).
we're off to the cabin later tonight for the rest of the week. living a few thousand feet higher will
hopefully help me get my mountain body back.
