Back to normal after yesterday's political rant, my afternoon beach run did get done. It’s still crazy hot, imagine! The seawall I run on is about 10’ wide & white cement. It soaks up the sun all day so that by the time I get there it’s hot enough that I think it could melt the soles of my shoes if I stood still long enough. The breeze felt like the furnace some friends of mine used for glass blowing.
I’ve been having some problems w/ pain in my shins, particularly my right. It goes away after about 2 miles but at times has been bad enough that I’ve considered stopping. I am also having an issue w/ my left shoe which has suddenly become too small! Don’t know how the hell that happened. Anyway, I think this afternoon will involve some shoe shopping.
