6,636 feet of elevation gain (and loss) in two days was enough for little Chevy. After today's hike he promptly laid in a stream in protest and shot me his best sad puppy face.
Thankfully my foot seems to be handling back-to-back days of hiking with a heavy pack well (yay cortisone!) and my legs and lungs feel strong, too.
I'm looking forward to starting the muscular endurance phase of training soon :)
