It’s the beginning of the second week since I returned from Afghanistan.
Training is going well — no injuries to report other than some minor stuff, but that’s normal. Even though this training camp has not been ideal because of so much traveling, I’m in great shape and feeling pretty sharp.
I’ve been waking up earlier than usual. I’m a bit of a night owl and tend to sleep fairly late in the day, but I guess I’m still on Afghan time. It’s actually been really good for training, giving me time to run in the mountains before it gets too hot.
Yesterday I went way up there! Farther than I’ve ever gone. I thoroughly enjoy running in the New Mexico foothills. Well, maybe not thoroughly … the air is very thin and the terrain is crazy steep and rocky. Actually, running up there is a bitch!
