This long Memorial Day weekend is welcome and unplanned. When I looked at this weekend months ago, I thought I might spend some time in the North Cascades. Instead, I find myself taking it easy, trying to recover from last week's 50 miler in New Mexico. 63% finisher rate, I heard--that makes my crawl in seem a bit more understandable. However, now I have some sort of muscle/bone-and I'm not an MD problem-in my butt/hip/hamstring complex. It sucks--I was limping much earlier this week, and improvement is slower than usual, indicating some kind of more acute injury. Everything in me tells me just to take it easy, and let the body make itself whole, and so that's what I'm doing. Four weeks to Western. So this weekend I'm working around the house, working on the computer, watching movies, reading, and cooking. And it is nice. Fortunately, bad weather doesn't make it all that desirable to be up in the mountains.
