running at the beach!

Yea! Had a nice run this morning down the streets and back the boardwalk - I LOVE the beach!! I could run for hours on end here, when the weather is nice and cool - and it was this morning!
I love seeing all the runners and walkers on the boards in the a.m. - love it! I wish I had my camera with me but I seem to have lost the battery (gah!)

I ran for 51 minutes, just happened to be the time when I got to the end of the block I wanted to get to, and it was 5.26 miles. I was happy to do 5, so that was great. Walking back - a bit painful - but walking is worse than running. I can run fine, just the rest of the day walking kind of hurts. Came back and went for a bike ride down to the boardwalk with the B, he made me some breakfast - this guy would be a great short order cook, he makes me the best egg white omelet! We went to the beach, and tomorrow a.m. we head home (BOOOO!) I haven't been able to run back to back days yet, I guess I could, but I want to rest my lovely knee instead (can you hear me knee, I love you and it would be so great if you could work properly!) Attempting a long run with my friend Abby later this week, hopefully it will hold up!

  3. Nice to have a beach! I am finding it very difficult to not run right now, but prudence says wait a few more days... Hope your knee gets better. I think the root cause of my runner's knee is quad and hip flexor weakness. Who woulda thought?

  4. Beach runs are wonderful. I could look out at the waves and run or walk for miles. It's so relaxing. Glad you had a good time.

  5. Beach runs are always welcome. Nice job. Hope the knee continues to feel better. It is probably a good idea that you don't run back to back days. Sounds like the extra day of rest is good for the knee. Keep icing.
