Calibound

(I’m resisting, resisting the urge, urge to reference that song.)

 
I’m going to California! It’ll be my first visit back since I moved a year and a half ago. That seems crazy, I can’t believe that’s true.
It’s going to be SO fun.

I’m spending Thursday and Friday with my brother and sister-in-law down in the South Bay. We’re going to go out for some good Mexican food (impossible to find in Portland), catch up on life/job/future stuff that I never get to talk to them about, and maybe watch some Sharks hockey (apparently they are into it now!). I’ll get in my big tempo run down there on a great trail by his place. Unfortunately there is no roller derby scheduled while I’m there so I won’t get to see my brother in action as a ref, but that’s ok. He’s actually leaving for a big derby tournament in Bakersfield Saturday morning where he’s head ref for about half the bouts, wish I could see that!

Anyway, that works out well because Saturday I’m going to head up to the East Bay to spend the weekend with Maritza!!!!!!!! We’re going running on Saturday, then going out for lunch and going shopping and just hanging out and catching up. On Sunday we’re going into San Francisco for our long runs. I’m doing my first 20 miler of the year with Aron! I’m so excited to hang out with these girls- Tara and Kristen will be somewhere in the mix too I hope! We’re all going out for breakfast after and then hopefully just boozing it up all afternoon. I’m soooooo excited!


One of the best parts of this trip is that I get to RUN in a few of my favorite Bay Area locations. I actually have a LOT of running to do while I’m there because this is my peak week! I have a 12 miler on Friday with 7 miles @ tempo pace, 6 recovery miles on Saturday with Maritza, and then the 20 on Sunday with Aron. Yayyyyyy!


Ok well let me catch up on the runs I’ve done so far this week here in Portland:

Monday: rest
Tuesday
5.0 miles/48:07/9:37 average pace
I ran mostly with Alisa except for when I ran off an extra mile to get my 6 x 100 m strides in. Fun run!


Wednesday
12.0 miles/1:48:32/9:03 average pace
Medium-long run out on the springwater. Boring but felt good.

Well, I’m out of here! I’ll be back early next week with tonzo pictures and a recap of the weekend. Thanks for reading!!

LOL to Maritza's comment.

Have a great time in CA!

Yes, I thought it was 'far south' CA - San Diego is great for Mexican food :)

Know you'll have fun - can't wait to see the pics and read all about the elite-style training you did with your friends.
