I simply acquired again from visiting my brother Invoice in Phoenix. It could possibly get sizzling there by April, however I used to be fortunate. It was good and funky every morning, and solely acquired hotter within the afternoons (80s most days, low 90s a few days). We went for hikes within the lovely South Mountain Park proper subsequent to Invoice’s home. I solely took someday off, deciding to present my calf muscular tissues a relaxation as a result of they acquired sore. I hadn’t been doing as a lot strolling or mountain climbing at dwelling just lately because of my SI joint drawback, and I suppose biking by itself wasn’t sufficient to maintain my calves in form. The hikes turned out to be a terrific take a look at for me, we went greater than 90 minutes every day. Fairly an enchancment over not having 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 decisions 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 a terrific 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.
