Beach Running

Monday, July 29, 2013

This morning it was cool and overcast.  Unfortunately it didn’t seem like it was going to be a great beach day, but it was the perfect day for a run.  Sunday is supposed to be my rest day, but since I’m still in the first week of my training, my long run was only 3 miles the day before.  I have to say this was one of the best runs I’ve had in a long time.  It should have been an easy run but the beautiful sea breeze motivated me to push myself a little more than usual.  I didn’t realize until I hit the turn around point that the first half of the run was gradually up hill.  There’s nothing better than making the second half of your run all down hill!  I finished the three miles in 29:59 minutes.  I know doing 10 minute miles isn’t exciting for most, but comparing that to the early days of my last training cycle where I was averaging around a 12 minute mile for the same distance, I couldn’t be more happy!
