Tuesday: 5.74 miles of running followed by a .62 mile uphill walk "cool down."
I explored new territory and found a route along lots of horse ranches.
|When you are loaded, you spend lots of money on a fancy gate for your ranch.|
Wednesday: Arm weights + crunches. Specifics on Daily Mile.
5.21 miles of running followed by a .76 mile uphill walk "cool down."
I attempted speed work in a new park that I thought was flat, based on what I saw from driving past it a few times. It turns out I was wrong and that speed work is very challenging on an incline. But I still tried all the intervals I set out to do.
Goal was 6x800 in 4:08 with 90 second rest intervals. 4/6 weren't bad.
Friday: 5.7 mile tempo run. Goal tempo pace was 9:20; my average pace was 9:07. Flat route for a change.
Pushups+Crunches, more here.
Saturday: 8.15 mile run, Average pace was 9:42. I don't really know what this run was as it wasn't quite an official long run. Just running.
Total running miles: 26.18
Plus a little hiking:
Sunday: 5.22 mile hike at East Canyon.
|Elevation Gain: 1153', all in the first half.|
I guess while it's maintained by the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, it's technically the Santa Susana Mountains.
|Snake hanging out in the middle of the path. Luckily it isn't the kind that rattles.|
|Also came across this crazy little lizard. Bronze body, bright blue tail.|
