I have a confession to make. I did not run on National Running Day. Shocker. I needed a day of travel recovery to unpack and relax, not to mention the humidity was really bad on Wednesday. What a warm welcome back to the East coast (pun intended)!
I did run yesterday though and although it was hilly running along the California coast, I realized that my very own neighborhood in Virginia is also a killer. I went out in the evening, luckily it was a little cooler, and did a large loop around my neighborhood. Amazing to think that after a few months of marathon training I will barely feel these hills but last night I did. I slept hard and feel well rested this morning. Nothing like a solid run to help you sleep like a baby. Tomorrow I am running a 5K, my first in a long time. I’m looking forward to a much shorter race for a change!
