Today was my first run of “Easy” week of my “Hard-Hard-Easy” training plan. I couldn’t hit the trails until after work, which meant my feet didn’t hit dirt until 12:30 PM. And it was HOT. But I at least drove to Wood Canyon, and after running up Cholla Trail I got to run the rolling hills of West Ridge which overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Here and there I got some ocean breezes. Wonderful run. Lots of squirrels. No snakes, but snake “tracks.” ALSO, also, and this is big, I came upon at least a half dozen runners.
So on “Easy” week (which really means less mileage) I got the added plus of heat training.
Hope your runs are happy this week.
