Lots of Rain

I know that Southern California people can't handle weather changes but we've really had some freaky rain storms over the past 48 hrs with another 48 hrs to come.  Yesterday for about two hours we got about 2 inches of rain with tornados, thunder, and hail.  It was comming down so hard we couldn't even see accross the street.



These were taken at our local harbor (Dana Point, Ca.)  a couple of hours after the downpour yesterday.  The waterfall - it's never there.  That's not a river, it's overflow coming of the cliffs into the harbor area.  Right above the 'waterfall' are multi-million dollar condos, no word if they been damaged.

Runningwise I took it very easy yesterday - I'm really sore in my right leg (tendons in the hip area) nothing serious, but because of the massive increas in mileage I'm taking it very easy.  I'm sure it's going to hurt my weekly mileage, and my training plan, but I'll deal with it.  I'll get in a walk or to today to keep my streak going, but I don't envision getting in a run today.

Keep Steppin'

Uggggg, this rain in San Jose is making me really depressed. I really hope that this weekend it is supposed to stop (haven't had a chance to look yet)

Have you looked up any hip flexor stretches? They are pretty easy and really loosen up my hips.

That's crazy! Hope it doesn't interfere with your running too much! It has been damp here in KS, but no tornados or monsoons!

Wow, those are crazy pictures. I have a dear friend in San Clemente (your neighbor) and we've been to Dana Point many times...wow! Try to stay dry!

Yup, same problem here-heavy rain and hail and lots of power outages because of fallen trees...
