This week has been all about two things: running in wonderful California and adjusting the plan due to travel.
I got in all four runs this week but those were the only workouts. Since none of the hotels (until the last one) had fitness centers I was unable to add a bit of cross-training such as stationary bicycling or strength training. (I did get a good bit of cross-training in the form of walking.)
How did the week play out?
Monday 4 miles
After an unexpected skipped long run, due to Saturday’s whopper travel day, it felt great to get back out there and run.
Thursday 5 miles regular run
Unfortunately, I’ve acquired a lovely California cough (no other symptoms, just a cough) that affected my breathing throughout the run. The temperature was perfect (55!) and I really did enjoy the run even though my legs felt really heavy on the hills.
Friday 5 miles regular run
I felt much stronger than Thursday as evidenced my pace (9:10). I loved the chilly weather! It’s too bad I have to give this up when I return to South Carolina.
This was another day of walking. It’s a good thing the upcoming half wasn’t an “A” race.
Sunday San Francisco Second Half Marathon
I LOVE THIS RACE!
