on today's schedule we were to run 30 minutes. i am sans watch so i ran with my cell phone, this time heading towards santa monica.
may i just pause to say how amazing this southern california weather is? it is seriously sick. i'm not going to say too much more because i know most of my people in the northeast are covered in snow but in just the last few days i have wondered a few times why i'm still living in the north east.
anyway...i ran, and it was hard. i was definitely stiff from yesterday and not running very quickly but i didn't mind. i had read through coach lisa's email this morning and it was a reminder that's its more about time on your feet than distance so i tried my best not to push too hard.
on the way back to the house i saw a group of white-shirted runners coming towards me and lo and behold it was a team in training group out for a run. one of the coaches or mentors spotted me and said "go team! looking good!" and i cheered back at her and it was nice to know there's a santa monica or venice team out there running. in fact, i may look them up next weekend.
today's mileage: 2.5
season mileage to date: 6.0
up next: cross-training on tuesday
