The first part of this week, I was in the LA area for work. Wasn’t my ideal trip but I decided to make good use of my time. Tuesday morning I set the alarm and got up early and went for a run. Its nice that it wasn’t raining or anything!
I had mapped out a general run on map my run so I knew a general area to run in. I headed out and felt pretty good. It is strange to run in the morning, but I felt really good! I saw another guy but almost ran into him because he didn’t have any reflective gear on! It was definitely dark, but where I was running, there were some street lamps as well. I ended up running up some relatively large hill. It was a bit tough, but I felt fine at the end. After 20 mins I turned around and headed back! Here’s what the turn around looked like:
This was a really nice sand trail on the side of the sidewalk so it was still lighted and easier on the legs!
That part was easy but the better news was that I felt like I hit my stride and my legs were feeling great!
Here is a picture once it was a bit more light of the side of the hills I was running on:
I am so glad this run went so well! I have been feeling the taper madness lately!
3 days till race day!!!
