Been on vacation for a week, but finally have time to update my blog.
AM- Ran 3 miles from my hotel near Disneyland to the Santa Ana bike trail, then ran on the dirt trail. Gravel trail paralleling a paved bike path. Flat, except for the many road underpasses. Started a tempo 4 miles into the run. 4 miles upriver (with a headwind) averaging 6:18 miles. Then turned around and ran back 4 miles averaging 6:05 miles. Threw on 1 more tempo mile for good measure, though a bit slower due to some freeway overpasses, stoplights, etc. 3 miles back. 16 miles total at 6:44 avg pace. Nice weather, cool, humid, a bit breezy. Spent the next 12 hours walking around Disneyland- that's gotta count for something, right? Fun time with the wife, kids, and extended family.
