2000 yds. Today was plain and simple. I did all my yardage freestyle, no rush, but felt like I was side to side more correct than before. I didn't bother with flip turns, just swam leisurely to get better form. The air was 78 degrees. The pool water was 78 degrees. It all matched up! … Continue reading It all matches up.

8mi. I arrived on time, my time that is, right before 5am. Only Jon was there running before I began, I saw him when I drove up the bridge. It was 56 degrees and a good sustained wind directly form the west. I wore a t-shirt and my finger gloves, my first lap over the … Continue reading CSI Riviera Beach
33mi. Today was supposed to be an exposure or re-exposure to cycling for Chiara, Stanton and Walter. Two down from that count saw Charlotte, Stanton and I leaving Jupiter at just after 7am for Bridge Rd in Tequesta. I had a sleeveless shirt on, which felt comfortable. Foolishly, I allowed my "less than bright" front … Continue reading Plink!
20mi. I'd say 58 degrees would be ideal for that long run before a marathon. Walter & Chiara met me today at 5am, I arrived early and did 2 mi on the bridge first. We went to PGA and back, did not stop at the store, and ran to the inlet, back to the store … Continue reading Long Lemon Run
4.5 mi Did I know today would be the 32 runners showed up for track workout day? Or that we'd sing "Happy Birthday" to Paul? Or he'd dole out a mile for time? None of the above. Today's intervals were: 1 mile warmup 400m w/200m recovery 200m w/200m recovery 200m w/200m recovery 600m w/200m recovery … Continue reading Best attendance ever!
8mi. I can see how I'll adjust to the inevitable warming that's overdue for the morning workouts. It was 58 degrees, but windy from the west, so my first lap on the bridge was chilled. I had a tech t-shirt on, so it wasn't that bad. Jon was there, Adrienne and Angie, Randi Garvey, Gary, … Continue reading Faster alone
13mi. This was originally slated to be a 16 miler, but last minute pleas from Walter and Chiara had us start at 5:30am for 13 miles. I had a rare early little league game to be prepared for, this was an 8am start for John. I figured do the 3 miles first, meet the large … Continue reading A Saturday for long, slow distance.
5mi. Today was STILL cold at the track, will we please see regular Florida mornings soon? I came with a t-shirt, shorts, and fleece and the small gloves from my car. I was determined not to be cold. After the first 1000m of workout (below) I tossed the jacket aside. I felt good in that … Continue reading Slow and noticeable!
8mi. This morning was windy and 53 degrees, cooler than I wanted, but after the first lap on the bridge I shed my fleece jacket. Welcome back to the sidewalk, Shelby, it's been awhile! Where was the birthday Char? Also out today were Paul & John Reback, Atilla, Gary, Teresa O. and a friend, Angie … Continue reading Hills again
4 mi. Welcome back, Charlotte! She came and did the whole track ordeal - first time in awhile. My right lower calf area was tight and still hurt, so I was never in the front pack, always in the middle or the rear group. It was very refreshing to have Charlotte to speak with, I … Continue reading Windy & Cool track
