needed my legs to remember hiking in anticipation of our AZT day-hiking up on the Kaibab Plateau starting Thur with two 12.5 mile days in a row : rambo : and then another 25 miles or so over the next three days.

Today: Humid, thank goodness for the little breeze, quite a few people out. Trail is in pretty decent shape, still see results where they put what I call "sticky scree" rocks on certain parts of the trail.

Just an FYI - I was having a pretty serious RIGHT outer leg pain issue since our AZT backpack last Thanksgiving. Then I fell on the trail in January and it was exasperated. Well I just kept waiting and waiting for it to get better. Finally in July it seemed the pain reached just an uncomfortable plateau rather than pain but it wouldn't go away. Threw in the towel and went to a leg pain specialist who instantly diagnosed it as sciatica. Well I had ruled that out via Dr. Google as my back was not included and I've had sciatica before, it's brutal. He ordered the MRI. Since there's really nothing that can be done for my current level of sciatica; I didn't see the point.

Well lo and behold, later that week the pain seemed to almost completely subside; it got thru that plateau. I cancelled the MRI and now my leg is just about back to normal other than occasional pain in my outer knee. I just wanted to share this in case any of you experience this issue. You're welcome, Dr. Romain out :lol: .

Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
