Surfing As Cross-Training

Surfing As Cross-Training


After the surf trip adventure and a red-eye back to the East coast, I’ve been trying to catch up.  I’m feeling most improved after 5 days of surfing in La Jolla and looking forward to doing it again. Carolyn and I took a private lesson our first day, then we took pictures of her group while they were having their lesson.  After we’d go back out and try to catch our own waves. It was fun being “the assistant” and a nice change of pace from regular life. I also got asked to go on a 90 minute run with an ultra-runner and an aspiring Olympic marathoner–have to say it was a little bit intimidating but thank goodness a recovery run for the 2:40 marathoner.   What an interesting and inspiring  bunch of women we had in our group from New Mexico!
