Workout: 6 Miles 1:23:36

Hello All!
Sorry I’ve been away, but it’s been crazy!

I started my day off today with a little pre run breakfast.
Some english muffins from trader joes, with a little almond butter and some banana.. YUM.

I met my San Diego Track Club at Cal State San Marcos for a long run today around twin peaks. We set off around 7 am and got back 8:45 am. It was brutal! Let me just tell you it was difficult, hills, straight up but the views were beautiful.

Beautiful views

straight up hills!

The run killed me, I’m not used to running hills. I walked mostly all the hills and of course ran all the way back down. It totaled about 6 miles. On the way up, I started talking with another woman who gave me all these tips for first runners.

Tips like:
-if you get a side cramp raise your arms above your head, if you cant raise your arms while running slow down to a fast walk.
-if you’re running a long run by the ocean jump in after! Your legs will probably sore and numb after a long run, so they wont be in too much shock after jumping into the cold ocean. Ice baths can do the same trick.
-Before a long run or a race, you must eat a pre run fuel. You can’t go from sleeping thru the night with no food/fuel to running.

Got to get ready for work!
