It's amazing how good the sun feels. Especially when you come from a wet and dark place.
I did not feel fast or light on my feet or even just good but getting out today was worth so much. My breathing was labored and I kept wanting to stop and just walk... luckily I managed to hold on until I got to intersections, etc. before slowing down.
I basically ran up the wash on the pedestrian/bicycle path and then back on the dirt trail down in the wash itself. At one point the footpath was closed for some repair work and I had to go down the embankment, across the bottom and up the other side to continue. That was a bit aggressive for running so here was one of my walking sections.
All the sidewalks here are concrete so there was very little asphalt and I was worried about my right knee/IT band but it held up just fine.
