Saturday’s beach run

Friday I went down to my shore house after work since I knew Saturday was supposed to be beautiful. I woke up Sat at 7 and knew that I wanted to try and go for a run. The weather was perfect, not too hot, but soooo sunny. I forgot to pack a hat which was a total fail. I was all taped up with my hot pink tape ready to go. On Friday at the chiro/PT place I asked if he should tape me up since I had a far walk from the train station. No way was I going to tell them I was planning on running. They just don’t get that saying I should do absolutely no exercise doesn’t work for me. So here I am ready to go.

You’re jealous.

I set out to run 3 miles along the boardwalk on the beach. About 1/2 mile in the knee started hurting but then the pain dissipated as I settled into the pace. Towards the end I had a killer headache, probably due to the squinting. Passing all the other runners, walkers, bikers I was in my element although there was definitely a struggle that made me think, didn’t I used to enjoy this? Then I remembered that it was the feeling I get when I’m done, not necessarily as I’m running, that I enjoy.

The first mile was 10:42, the second was 11:06, the third 10:47, finishing the 3 in 32:35. Not complaining.

I just cannot get the full body shot like TMB does.

After the run, I sat on the porch to check some email, catch up on some blogs. I just discovered I can get Internet down at the shore, now that the summer is over.

And then it was time to hit the beach. Look what I found while reading my Fitness magazine.

Caitlin is everywhere these days!

The beach was perfect.

Now I’m back in the city and very excited about 2 other things I will tell you all more about when I try them!

Got this to review and won these
