Summer's Here at Camelback

Weather:  93°, sunny

Time:  30 minutes

About this hike:  The heat is definitely challenging my time to the summit. I find myself stopping more often.  That said, this was an enjoyable hike.  Summer really isn't so bad—there are far fewer people, easier parking, and a good portion of the trail is shaded.  Of course I stick to early mornings before the hottest part of the day.

Knee is feeling better. It still bothers me after a run, but doesn't stay hurting for too long. In fact, I was at the exit gate of my complex today before realizing I didn't have my Velcro brace.  I chose to turn around and grab it as it has made a huge difference.

Today after the hike my knee felt no worse for the wear, and I was putting weight on it, jumping, etc. like normal.  After 5 weeks I hope this strain injury is finally behind me.  And I have to ask myself—were the Grand Canyon and Bill Williams Mountain hikes that caused the strain in the first place worth it?

When I got home instead of feeling exhausted I felt like lifting I guess I got my workout in for today and tomorrow!
