Lots of good workouts this past week. Long run Monday, in the gym on Tuesday, another long run Wednesday, then Friday did a 2,000 foot elevation change hike (1.5hrs) and an 8 mile run Saturday. Sunday was a "stretch how hard you can go" workout...3.5 hours and 3,500 feet up and 3,500 feet down for a total of 7,000 feet of elevation change. All 5 feet of snow had melted in the past 10 days and the ground is mush. Even found a new spring coming out of the side of a hill. Cleaned it away to make sure it flowed well and will get it tested. Having a clean spring available is a nice backup plan in case something happens and your water is out. Of course boiling and treating is still necessary, but still nice to have the resource.
Monday, I am sore.
Funny story. Went to get repeat blood work on my immunity (had no immunity to Hep A or B) since those are kind of basic immunizations and quite suprising that I wasn't immune. The technician wrote down the wrong code for one of the tests and instead of measuring immune response they only checked on whether I had exposure to Hep A (a communicable disease often transmitted via food) and indeed via the immunization I had exposure (a good thing). The Health Department then called my doc and only after a VERY long conversation did they figure out that yes, it was a GOOD thing that my test was positive and it showed that I WAS having an immune response to the vaccine. They still wanted to make sure I wasn't a restaurant worker. She assured them that I was an enthusiastic consumer, but I was not in the restaurant biz.
Hep B still not much response, but before they label me a 1%'r (one percent of the population have no immune response to a vaccine), they want me to get a third shot in another 3 months. Long after I am home again, but just the same.
