I decided to do my 60 minute run on the Embarcadero today during my break between rehearsal and show. It was still hot out by 5pm and the sun was just beginning to go down directly in front of me. The run started out very nicely but began feeling a little chaotic by the time I hit Fisherman’s Wharf. My husband called just as I was dodging tourists and trying to see into the sun. I had one ear plugged to block out the cheesy Italian music wafting from restaurants but I wanted to talk since we hadn’t connected all day. Suddenly I was ambushed by the Bushman, whom I’ve heard about but never witnessed myself. He yelled “slow down” and of course I jumped, making the surrounding tourists laugh. I’m on a roll with making scenes lately. Maybe I should stay away from tourist destinations for the next few days!
I ran for almost an hour at what felt to be a good but sustainable clip and it took me until intermission of the opera to final cool back down to normal temperature again. I’m not used to 80 degrees outside… and inside the pit!
The workout: 5.5 mile run
55 minutes, full body roll-out and core exercises after
