5 mi. Today's visit to the track was so I could do my first run after the marathon. I didn't intend to go fast, just do all of the intervals and stretch out my legs. It worked, because I didn't feel achy or fatigued after the workout or for the rest of the day. Here's … Continue reading Just running in circles
Race report for Dave Masterson - A1A Marathon, Ft Lauderdale, Fl. February 21st, 2010.
6mi. I went back to the Esplanade Surfer's Paradise, this time with Walter. I wanted someone to be able to see what I've seen and report back to those at home about what a great place this is. After all, the witness protection program may strongly encourage relocation to Mercurio, MT. But I'm gonna pay … Continue reading Esplanade revisited…
8.75mi. I had no idea the sun lights the morning sky at 4:45am. I had the blackout shades drawn in my room, when I woke up early, I figured the best thing I could do would be to iron everything I brought, so I wouldn't need to do that any more on this trip. Having … Continue reading The Esplanade
2000 metres. I try to come to the Cook Aquatic Centre each time I visit Sydney, it is directly in the middle of the city and popular among the locals. I got there right when they opened at 6am, easy to do when the time difference nonsense had me up at 2:10am. I was able … Continue reading Sydney swimming!
16.5 mi. A breeze and 66 degrees made today's long slow run enjoyable. Chiara, Adrienne, Charlotte and Lisa Reese came early to do the first 6 miles down to PGA and back. then we joined the Sat Running Sports group for their 10.5mi. Suzanne joined up with us right at 5 miles, she was looking … Continue reading Saturday before a long flight
5mi. What a perfect morning to run fast. 24 people came for Paul's workout, a 65 degree morning with a nice faint breeze from the Northeast. I ran with Erica for all but one interval, she ran well at Race For the Cure, so good choice of pacing for me. In the midst of the … Continue reading “…that’s what track’s for.”
2000 yds. I swam again today, I started earlier and had less time, I had to get back to a 1:30 meeting and I got caught up in the office. I did straight freestyle today again, even though I did no flip turns, I finished in about 43 minutes. Back to yesterday's theme - I … Continue reading One Day’s Difference.
7.5 mi. That bridge is a special place at 5am! I arrived about 5 minutes later than usual, but it didn't matter, the parking lot was empty, no Jon, no homeless people, silent. Except for the wind, the 73 degree morning, and the clouds zipping by overhead. The weather report said about 11-13 mph breeze, … Continue reading It’s lonely at the top.
2000 yds. I read a post on Facebook - something about , "What do you think about while you're swimming?" I imagine I cover a good span of material. I can say most of it isn't work related, even though I'm sandwiching my swims in between work am & work pm. It does melt away … Continue reading What am I thinking?
