Picture: beautiful flowers from my hubby. There are nine. We have been married nine years, but together for 17. Yep, he had to buy a nice rock to compensate for that lag time, I digress..) I wanted to stay up late and watch scary movies with my hubby instead of prepare to get up early and go to an open water swim the the freezing, fucking ocean. Who could have predicted that hanging with the cute guy and bailing on the scary swim would win out?
Then this morning, I chose to run instead of swim at the pool, 'cuz when I bail on something I go all out. Picture: Me heading out to NOT swim! Yippee!
I wanted to go to the new bike trail that I had run at a while back, but when I got there they were having the San Jose Mountain Bike Sprint Triathlon. Rats. So I drove around for awhile trying to find a trail head I had seen on one of my bike rides. I was getting pissed because I couldn't find it (shock of all shocks, I know). I kept telling myself "It is a run. Just park the car and go run, dammit!"
But, I am glad I held out because I found a trail head (Never did find the one I was looking for. Whatever!) As a matter of fact, I found the perfect RBR trail head. There is only one trail. No turns, no other trails lead to it. Just one, stand alone, 10 mile trail. Point to point. It is truly impossible for me to get lost.
Unfortunately it does have a bit of climb in it. Here is the elevation for my out and back 6 miles run this morning:
It was a truly glorious run. Pictures: View from the trail. Pretty shots of the trail. And in case you thought I was just tra-la-la-ing along taking pictures, here I am obviously working hard!
My other scheduled workout was a 2 1/2 hour bike ride. Hubby and I went out for 32 miles on an absolutely BEAUTIFUL California day.
Rockstar work out day!
