Ship’s Log–August 6th


I managed a slow three mile run this morning. It feels so good to be back out on the trails, even if it’s not at 100%. I was quite sore after the run, too, as though it had been more like 15 miles. I don’t know if this is because I’m still a little sick or because I’ve lost so much of my conditioning while being sick. I strongly suspect it’s the former. One week is too short to go from being able to run 13 miles comfortably to having 3 make your quads scream.

There was good news on Thing 2’s front, as well. His fever did not come back at all today, but his appetite did. The little man put away three slices of pizza for dinner, which is probably more than he ate in total yesterday. I expect by tomorrow he’ll be going stir crazy to get out of the house and see his friends, though I think another 24 hours of rest is probably in order.
