I almost skipped big gear Wednesday (double spin class with reillysmith ) because I could barely keep my eyes open after 9 straight hours of work in the office. So glad I sucked it up and went anyway! I feel so much better. Alarm is set for 4:45AM. Early morning miles await!
8 mi run complete for Picky Club #teamgreen! I really did not want to run after my ride this morning but I committed to running with Rae so out the door I went. After two years of running together, Rae is training for her first half marathon in May. So excited for her! This was her longest run to date. 8 mi around the Marina + .6 cool down for total 8.6.
Scenes from early morning 12 miler to Manhattan Beach and back. 1) Tons of surfers at El Porto. They looks like ants in the water. 2) Early morning surf competition. Surfers are early morning people! 3) Sweaty selfie. 1 mile cool down for 13 mi total. Such a beautiful morning. No complaints!
This felt good. I had an unexpected rest day yesterday but am feeling a lot better today. Some days you need to just listen to your body.
This afternoon Revolution Fitness held a double spin to support reillysmith . Rather than skip my long run this morning, I decided to take the plunge and do a double spin on top of my long run. (I had never double spun after anything over a 10 mi run). I have to admit that I felt like I was going to vomit halfway through. I gave the class my all. I am sure that this endurance training will help my 100 mi bike ride next month. Tomorrow - early morning 40 mi ride from Malibu to Pt Mugu.
16 mile LSR along the beach complete! It felt great. Beautiful morning!
These Thursday morning shake out runs are getting a little bit easier. My quads and calves are still adjusting to the Wednesday night work. Ouch.
Tonight - another 5 miles at an easy pace. 10 miles for the day
I have been in a bit of an under the weather funk for the past couple of days. This run might have been the ticket out of the funk. Tomorrow - more miles and double spin - BIG GEAR WED NIGHT! I love love love Wed night.
15 miles completed!!!!! LSR along the beach and marina. Felt amazing!!!
7.5 miles on Los Leones Canyon Trail. This was technical - my running partner called it an ankle breaker trail. I spent the first mile cursing my decision to run trail instead of road this morning. The bright side is that I finished, up to the lookout and back. The views were breathtaking. My legs feel like jello. Great weekend of workouts! Ready for more football - Go Niners!
