I was going to do my workout here in Snoqualmie prior to departing for my business trip to LA but the weather was so cold here I took an earlier flight so I could enjoy the warmth of SoCal. With the help of Google Maps, I was able to quickly find a high school track within a half mile of my hotel in Santa Monica. School was still in session so i had an abnormally long 7-mile warmup before I was able to get on the track. The workout was 3M@5:03-5:05 followed my a one-minute rest then one mile at 4:56. I was 1/2 mile from the beach so the onshore winds were definitely noticeable but I was able to hit each of the three miles at 5:02 despite fairly breezy conditions. The 65 degree temps really felt nice as we've spent the last few days in an icebox in Seattle. Finshed up with a nice cooldown along the beach.
