kiddie alarm clock

i woke up to three adorable little children sneaking about my 7:30 am. so much for sleeping in!

ah well. it was a good excuse to then get up and run.

i have been feeling a little stiff and today i was supposed to run 4-5 miles - i decided to play it by ear, run down to the pier, see how i was feeling and then make a judgment call then. it was another gorgeous morning (does one ever take this for granted in cali?), a little chill in the air but the rain had stopped leaving just lovely sun shining over the damp ground.

i reached there pier and while, as usual, i was a bit winded, my legs were feeling fine so i decided to go for about 4.5 miles, which was not that much more. the way back towards the end was a little bit of a struggle but i kept it nice and slow and steady since we are supposed to be doing long, slow distance.

i got back, stretched, saw my lovely red exercise face (i can't wait until that goes away) and was glad i had the kiddies to wake me up and get me out of the house nice and early.

today's mileage: 4.6
season mileage to date: 18.4
up next: 30 minutes EZ on sunday or monday
