Today was a 5 mile run along the beach with the LA Roadrunners.  It was a cut back week in the training schedule (they had run 6 miles last Saturday, I only ran 3.5 after running halves both the two prior weekends).  I joined up with run/walk 6 this morning, who should be doing a 14 minute pace for the LA Marathon in March.



The first 2 miles were pretty brutal.  I wasn't really warmed up completely and my lungs were protesting working so hard that early.  But after slowing down a bit and it getting a bit warmer out, this run was pretty good even if it felt like we were crawling towards the end.  It definitely isn't cold after 7am, but I'm going to have figure out better layering options for my early morning weekday excursions to fend off the pre-sunrise chill that has shown up this week.

3 training runs this week, then off to Las Vegas super duper early Saturday morning for the Rock 'n' Roll 5K (Saturday night) and half marathon (Sunday night).
