Yesterday was an 8 mile general aerobic run. I took off on my new favorite route from Big Corona to El Moro. I got going in the late afternoon, and the onshores were blowing pretty hard. So, my four miles out was pretty easy with the wind at my back. The four miles back though - well. The whitecaps on the ocean were an indication. Pant pant gasp whew! Headwinds. Yech! I wrapped up the run with 10 stride outs. I then went home and destroyed dinner!
I am soooo sore this morning, especially my quads. And my lower back is tired. I guess those stride outs got to me. Final stats on the run - 8 miles at 9:57 average pace with an average heart rate of 78% of max.
On a side note - I need to start tracking my calories again. I've been getting hungry in between meals lately, and have been snacking - a lot. I'm eating breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, snack. Gotta get that back under control! As I ramp up (the next four weeks should be around 150 miles) I should be able to leave a pound or two behind. Sparkpeople - here I come (back again).
