Oh happy day.
I went for my first outdoor run today since I laid waste to my left ankle. The result? If felt great. And kind of cool that my first outdoor run was in Corsica, France.
One thing this kind of vacation is good for is REST. I have been getting plenty. I've also been getting plenty of bread, cheese, pate, chocolate and wine which has not seemed to hurt my ankle any. :)
After breakfast Shelley and I went for a stroll in the hills just above the town and somehow I managed to turn my GPS off after just 30 minutes. Rats. The blue line is what my watch missed.
Although my ankle felt great on my run, my lungs did not. And I am right at sea level. Oh well. I can only go up from here.
While hiking I realized I have GOT to get back up here and run on these trails before we leave. the views are SO good and the trails super fun.
