I met up with Blaine this morning for a barefoot run on the beach. We probably should have started a bit later, as the tide was going out but was still pretty high when we started. As a result, we had to splash through some sections which slowed us down quite a bit and the water was a tad chilly. Still, it could have been worse. This November has been very warm overall.
The run went well, however we did encounter an irresponsible dog owner with a large, aggressive mutt that charged us with it's teeth showing and barking angrily. It seemed to take a liking to Blaine especially, but fortunately we weren't bit. The owner was slow at getting his dog on the leash (which is the law, mind you), so I exchanged a few choice words with him that ended with me telling him what he could do to his mother (he didn't like that).
That aside, great run. Felt great and I don't think my calves and soleus muscles will be overly sore tomorrow. Last time they got worked out overly hard, but I'm a bit more acclimated now and this run wasn't as long.
Ran 10.1 miles @ 9:02/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - N/A (wore the strap, but I suspect it's battery is dead)
Beaches with mostly packed sand.
Mid 40s, overcast, slightly misty.
Barefoot, shorts, short sleeved shirt, windbreaker (shed after a mile), cap.
