I really dislike the return from vacation for a bunch of reasons, just ask my co-workers, and the uncertain about my fitness level is definitely one of them. I wanted to start off fairly easy here to prevent an instant injury, and managed to accomplish it. I ran a solid six miles in 7:48 a mile. I'll start to up the pace once I'm convinced the fitness is back.
And how was the vacation? Two awesome days of fishing. Four fish in 30 minutes from my trout stream in front of the house (the stream begins nine miles away on the Continental Divide). One great day of four-wheeling that ended in too much rain. And one great day of driving my raft on the Arkansas River. Terrific vacation with no running and cool weather.
