Workout-wise, Wednesdays are tough since they generally include some form of tempo running, a run at near maximum sustainable effort. Today I had to do a one hour and fifteen minute run with fifty minutes at tempo. Oye. I was pretty sure that running back and forth along Chrissy Field wouldn’t provide enough of a distraction, so I decided to try running across the Golden Gate Bridge for part of the workout. Besides a bit more car exhaust and the need to leap around a few large groups of camera-happy tourists, running across the bridge was pretty nice. Very cool to live in a place where you can include one of the seven wonders of the world as part of your lunchtime run.
