Running in Hawaii
Besides snorkling, swimming, and simply lounging in the sun like a content cat, I've been running. Or have run, rather - I went for my first run here today. After all, I gotta keep in shape for Track. It wasn't a particularly long run, 3.5 miles at the most. What made it hard was the heat and humidity, neither of which I am used to, and my shitty pacing. For some reason I can never pace myself, and end up going way too fast running solo. I probably averaged 7.5 minute miles. My run was also up this huge hill, I ended up turning around a bit after passing some resort named The Ridge.
All the things I'm bitching about accounted for, the run was hard. Oh well, when I got back, I literally ran straight to the pool. I didn't even go inside to change, I simply took off my shoes, and flopped into the deep end. It felt amazing.
