2 Sumbawa Runs

This week is a busy flying week with monsoon rain showers forecast. It should be an interesting time trying to get in a week of high mileage.

Sunday’s run was a 10.5 mile run at sunset. This run ends an easy week of running and puts a good start on a big week. After a long day of flying it was nice to be able to get started before dark for once. I finished 2 of the 3 loops before I had to turn on my headlamp. Soon after the monsoon rains hit. Since I was already soaking wet from sweating, I decided to finish my planned distance. The rain really got going and at times it was “Fire Hose” time. Typical of the monsoon rains, it didn’t last long each time, but it never really stopped either. I wanted to keep my pace slow and my heart rate low. It didn’t work out too well. Surprisingly, my time was faster than the other 10 mile runs of this month. Must have been the daylight part that made me faster.

On Tuesday I had a couple of hours free before starting work, so I was able to get in a 7 mile run. It was sunny and hot when I started. For this run, I concentrated on keeping my effort level down so this would be considered an easy run. I felt hot and sweaty after the run, but my legs felt good. This should be an important fact later in the week.

  1. Stunning coastal scene.

  2. I love runs at sunset! They are so beautiful! Although I do not like running in the dark. You are lucky it is sunny and hot where you are! it is freezing where I am!
