    Honiara H3 (Guadalcanal)

    February 3, 2020 on the Solomon Islands ⋅ ☁️ 29 °C

    I am not back to 100% yet, but for the first time since my surgery, I was able to jog on trail without having to stop to catch my breath. It has been six months now since I was on my back in a hospital bed, and it seems my body is feeling pretty normal again. My pulse has now dropped from an average in 80s, back down into the low 60s and I have started to do some upper body workouts (just 10 pushups a day, but its a start - I feel pretty droopy in the arms after six months of nothing).

    Enjoyed an exceptionally good trail in the Solomon Islands yesterday. Had the opportunity to run with the Honiara H3 up on Vavaea Ridge, on Guadalcanal. Trail was mostly up and down on dirt roads and tracks, with a pack of about 25, good fun. Circle was short and to the point, with only one song, but that is common in these parts. :) The pack was very friendly, and we enjoyed dinner with a few hashers after the circle. Great times here in the South Pacific.

    Not as much as it looks. Hash Cash was only $5 of local currency (60 cents US). So a Beer costs $2.50 US and water $1.25.
