If you live in Los Angeles or the vicinity, the warm weather and smoldering heat due to the firestorms may have affected your regular outdoor running plans. Though the fire has not affected the air quality around UCLA, the heat is strong enough that my planned lunchtime running was not to be. Instead, I opted to go on the treadmill at the gym. Treadmill running is useful since you can gauge your pace and distance and also add hills. I ran about 25 minutes between 10.5 and 11 minute miles with some fartleks (speed play) at my 5K pace which is 9:40. In the evening, I did some pilates at the Absolute Yoga Studio.
Happy running/strength training!
