I pounded out 8 miles last night, in the wind!! It was so windy on the Embarcadero(one of my fav places to run in San Francisco) and I wanted to give up, but I didn’t. I kept the pace moderate and just wanted to finish. I felt good afterwards, tired and sweaty, but good! At first I kept it slow, but picked it up at my turn around point, sprinting two 100 meters. On the way back I sprinted the last 100 meters or so! Having the wind at my back on the way home was much better then on the way out.
Time: 1:10:02, Avg. mile: 8.47
Apartment time!! After my run (yes, gross and everything, I know) I went and looked at a new apartment. Well, not really new, just new to me. I live in a studio and I love it, but I need to save some $$ and am currently looking on craigstlist to see who needs a roommate! I want to live in either Nob Hill, Russian Hill or the Marina. The Marina ONLY if I find something cheap and close access to Van Ness. If I live in the Marina, getting to BART is almost impossible, so I will have to drive to work every day. Anyways, I looked at a place in Nob Hill last night and I liked it! It was really big, but had a small kitchen 😦 The roommates were cool, two dudes, and the place was pretty neat. I wasn’t 100% sold on it, so I’m still looking this weekend. However, it was really inexpensive, close to BART (so I can still walk to BART when I need to) and has an extra room!! My room would be huge too, so it had some perks. Hmm…I think I will probably make a decision this weekend so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
