I ran with the Rehab United group this morning and brought Michael with me. My agenda was to put in 10 miles, but I wasn't planning on any steep hills. Well... There was one steep hill that I took on, going through Sunset Cliffs Park, but since I was doing an out and back (sort of) the 5 mile marker on my BiM chimed before I made it to the top of the hill. (Yes!) My pace for today's run was more in the 10:30 to 10:50 minute/mile range. I had to stop for traffic lights a few times, and when I tried to adjust those stops, it took off some distance.
My hips were feeling rather sore before I finished the run, which is unusual. I don't think it's anything to worry about, but I will discuss it with Bryan on Monday. I'm thinking it's just because I need more hill work, and I will continue to be sore and become more sore until I can get in more steep hill runs -- provided those hills are outdoors and not fake treadmill ones.
There was no reason to have a camera on me today because the visibility was just like this for the majority of the run:
Normally, there's a gorgeous view of the ocean right off of the cliffs, but this morning the fog just took over.
Yesterday my daughter turned 26. How is it possible that I have a daughter that old when I'm only 29? *cough-cough* She went out with her boyfriend last night, and today no one is home, so we're all going out to breakfast tomorrow morning to celebrate. For some weird reason we do better celebrating birthdays and major holidays over breakfast. Happy birthday Renee!
Happy race day to all of my running friends who have races THIS weekend!
