Running 1:09:21 [3] 5.5 mi (12:37 / mi) +300m 10:47 / mi
shoes: Brooks Running 21

Running with Sam, Kyle, and Presto in the Tungsten Hills! We headed to Bishop this morning to visit friends and get some mountain time and get away from the smoke. After the long drive, we decided to get out for a run nearby, and just headed to some hills that are like 50% hill and 50% mine tailing. It must have been a truly miserable place to be a miner in the summer, but it was quite pleasant for a run in November. We went basically straight up a ginormous hill to start and I was dying a horrible death. Between the altitude and the dry air (and potentially unhappy lungs from a couple of weeks of breathing smoke?), my lungs were extremely painful. I was lagging way behind everyone on the uphill, but we took a bit of a breather at the summit, and then I got my revenge on the technical downhill section :-). Fun, fun!

Stretching 8:00 [3]

Stretching back at Erin and Kyle's after dinner and reading bedtime stories to the kids. I basically couldn't stop coughing all night after getting back from running. I feel fine otherwise, so I'm guessing it's just altitude + dry air, but it's a bit concerning.

Thursday Nov 7 #

Running 31:03 [3] 3.1 mi (10:01 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 21

Running with Presto after lab! The air quality here is not so good again (well into the unhealthy for sensitive groups category), and it was also foggy and cold enough for long sleeves tonight, so all in all, a kind of strange running experience. My lungs were burning a bit and my head was hurting a bit on the uphill, but everything felt a lot better on the downhill. Visibility was pretty low, which made me a lot more worried about cars than usual. The fires in Northern California aren't actually particularly bad right now, but there just seem to be a bunch of particulates that are stuck in the Bay Area and can't seem to find there way out of here. Definitely not as bad as last year, but still somewhat demoralizing.

Running 31:41 [3] 3.1 mi (10:13 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 21

Running with Sam and Presto after lab! The air quality was a little better tonight, so running actually felt ok, which was a nice change. Presto was in a completely crazy mood. He'd had some habanero pepper earlier in the day and maybe that just made him insane for the rest of the day??? Or maybe he was just excited to have some better quality air and cool temperatures? I'm not sure, but he was sort of randomly speeding up and jumping around and generally going nuts. Fun, fun!

Sunday Nov 3 #

Hiking 2:00:00 [3] 5.5 mi (21:49 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 21

Hiking with Sam and Presto at Rodeo Beach! The air was slightly better over in Marin today, but we decided that hiking was probably a better use of our outdoor time than running to limit the amount of burning lung issues. The hike was nice with decent views out to the Farallon Islands. Presto ate a rotting dead lizard or something, which was gross. Dogs... We ate pumpkin bread, which was delicious. We clearly won the eating for the day :-).
