Today was the perfect day to run my favorite causeway. It was overcast and 75 degrees. There was a wind, but only on half of the run...In fact I was enjoying the morning so much that I honestly got caught up in my thoughts and the views that I didn't worry about my pace or the fact that I was walking...much more than normal. I guess when I forget that I'm training and use the time for relaxing and fun, because I live in such a beautiful place, it's easy to do. With that said, I wish I could blame my fun run for the time I actually finished with, but I just can't. I ran! That's all I've got.
About halfway through the run I realized that I forgot to put on my running sunglasses and was running in my huge "Hollywood" sunglasses. I'm sure I looked silly to the other runners on the bridge this morning. Appearance is one thing, but these giant glasses caused my face to sweat so much more than normal. So I definitely recommend investing in a good pair of running glasses.
One last thing...Does this count as cross-training or upper body strength training? Just asking...
See you at the races!!!
