I had forgotten how much I love running. It’s incredibly therapeutic. I had a rough day today, so I had the urge to run and it felt amazing. One huge deficit in my schedule is regular cardio. I need to make daily runs or every-other-day runs a routine for myself. I can’t let cardio slide from my routine. Cardio is a huge part of backpacking, especially at a high grade. The stronger your heart and lungs, the better they function at high altitude. And plus, you’re heart starts beating pretty hard when you’re carrying 50lbs for 8 miles.
