I simply bought again from visiting my brother Invoice in Phoenix. It may get sizzling there by April, however I used to be fortunate. It was good and funky every morning, and solely bought hotter within the afternoons (80s most days, low 90s a few days). We went for hikes within the stunning South Mountain Park proper subsequent to Invoice’s home. I solely took sooner or later off, deciding to offer my calf muscle mass a relaxation as a result of they bought sore. I hadn’t been doing as a lot strolling or climbing at dwelling just lately on account of my SI joint downside, and I suppose biking by itself wasn’t sufficient to maintain my calves in form. The hikes turned out to be an amazing take a look at for me, we went greater than 90 minutes every day. Fairly an enchancment over not with the ability to stroll greater than 5 minutes just a few weeks in the past!
Apart from our native hikes and outings (Phoenix has much more restaurant selections than does the neighborhood of Morgan Hill), we did one journey to the Phoenix artwork museum and one other to the small city of Carefree subsequent to Scottsdale. All in all an amazing journey and nice to see Invoice and my nephew Tommy. It hadn’t been down there since earlier than Covid, and resolve to not let that a lot time go earlier than my subsequent go to.
