I went home to Fort Walton Beach, FL to visit my mom for her birthday. Coach Mary gave me a reprieve from Saturday's long ride - I sat on the trainer Friday night for two hours - but I still had to get in my long Sunday run.
So Saturday night I drove around my home time finding a lap that would get me about 9 miles before returning home for a bathroom break.
Running in Florida pros:
Cooler than Georgia (at least on July 1st. Only 92 vs. 106)
Running in Florida cons:
No shade anywhere
Lets call it a draw:
Sidewalks - easy to route, hard on the body
|Sun still isn't fully up and feeling good.|
|About an hour later and really starting to struggle. |
Missing the shade in Georgia at this point.
|Really suffering. Pain in my hip - hello gluteus medius -|
that is making my limp and sun is wearing me out.
|Post run - shaking out my hip as we pick up ice at|
Liza Jackson park.
|Time with Mom at Cinco Bayou's Frances park. And I'm |
not wearing work out clothes. Happy 71 to my wonderful Mom! :)
|Reward! Time at the beach. Ahhh.....|
