Sunday Run in Santa Monica

We visited some of Yoana's sisters up in Santa Monica this weekend, very nice time. Sunday morning Yoana asked me to go on a run with her through some of Santa Monica's nicest neighborhoods ending up with a beautiful run by the ocean. Now let's get something straight, I am no distant runner. I am a SPRINTER. What the heck I thought, I'll give it a shot. The run was a little over 5 miles and I made it through the first 35 minutes with no problem. It was around the 40 minute mark that my heart rate started beating too fast, around 185, I think I was just trying to keep up with Yoana and she's WAY better than me at the distances. Overall it was lots of fun being outside in the beautiful So-Cal weather with my wife. Now I know why I'm not a distant runner. Fun times!

Time to get back to the track for some sprinting!

LOL! That is great stuff man, I hear you on the sprint vs long distance thing. I tried my hand 5 years at adventure racing being a fast twitch guy that was a big challenge, but I loved every minute of it. However, give me a 4.4 40 or a 10.5 100 and I am much happier...lol

Take my friend and keep moving

yeah Joe - the distance work is challenging for me. It goes against my natural genetic make up, but what the hell, why not try something different every now and then :)

Sprinting Rules!
