Los Angeles August 2017 Day 1 Run

The first run from my August 2017 trip to Los Angeles.

The first day after landing in LA was a busy one. My friend earned his PHD, so there was a lot of champagne drinking and chocolate cake eating. Eventually by the early evening I decided to go on my favorite running route, down a bike / run path which leads right to the beach.

My run was a 6 mile progressive run there, took a break at the beach to go to my spot out on the rocks, and then did 7 less aggressive progressive miles back. Had to take that break to snap some pics of the setting sun:

My paces were:

  • Mile 1- 7:18
  • Mile 2- 7:01
  • Mile 3- 6:59
  • Mile 4- 6:48
  • Mile 5- 6:20
  • Mile 6- 6:11
  • Mile 7- 8:00
  • Mile 8- 7:51
  • Mile 9- 7:35
  • Mile 10- 7:24
  • Mile 11- 7:12
  • Mile 12- 7:09
  • Mile 13- 6:46

13.4 miles | 1:35:59 | 7:09/mi

The run felt great. It was hot all day but by the evening it started cooling down, and of course there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.

So far Cali life has been good!
