The heat is on

This week's long run was 15 miles. Because I was anticipated the summery heat, I wore shorts, a light tank top, and my visor. And, yes, it was hot on the island of Alameda, though the bay breezes were helpful and rejuvenating when we ran around Bay Farm Island.

The flatness of Alameda's paths is welcome for long runs, especially when I've ramped up multiple parts of my training all-at-once! Mile 13-14 was my fastest because I treated it as a tempo mile on tired legs. The mile felt long, but it was nice to use different muscles and push the speed :O

ps- I keep forgetting to bring my camera on training runs, but it will happen SOON....
