Sunday I went out for my weekly long run. I was worried I’d be a bit sore since I played 4 softball games on Saturday but it wasn’t too horrible. I had a pretty amazing 8 mile run along the Batiquitos Lagoon in Carlsbad and along Carlsbad State Beach. There is something magical about the ocean and running alongside the crashing waves. The run was supposed to be relatively flat but I ended up with 2000+ elevation gain. How did that happen? The last mile was also a struggle. It was my longest run in 18 months and I just did not have much energy at the end, as well as the fact that my hip was started to really bug me. My final time was 1:34:0 which I was pretty happy with and the run was gorgeous!
Happy Running & Dirty Feet!
