This weekend I finally started feeling a little better, finally. I just hate feeling sick and not able to run! I took a rest day both Thursday and Friday. On Saturday, I had a class for work in Valencia for most of the day. Between still being a little sick and headaches almost every day (and I rarely get headaches) and about four cups of free coffee at the class, I came home with a splitting headache. I rested for a few hours and started to feel a little better, so I headed to San Vincente for a nice 4 mile jog. It was right around dusk and B-eautiful.
These trees might be my favorite thing about LA. Honestly. I want to transplant one to the midwest when I move.
I ran up to the beach and saw a wedding going on along the beach so I played paparazzi and snapped a shot. No telephoto on the iPhone so just take my word for it that those little dots are people at the wedding.
On Sunday, Kale and I headed to the beach for a long run. It was pretty warm and really crowded. I stopped in to REI, pretty much my favorite store, and finally got some new running sunglasses. They are really lightweight, polarized, and the best part: on sale!! Wooo!
I decided to try these energy gummies from Power Bar that I got as a sample from a recent race. Pretty delicious.
I headed north this time to avoid the crowds a little especially around the Santa Monica pier and Venice. It was definitely a good plan, though I still ended up running almost to Venice beach on the way back to get my last couple miles in.
We came home ravenous, ate an early dinner like the old married couple we are, and I fell asleep on the couch watching TV shows on my iPad. Lazy Sunday evening 🙂
