8 mi. I did Lap #1 alone, 2 & 3 with Scott, and 3,4,5 alone again. I am getting used to feeling some speed and ability to go hard breathing again. This is good as I draw closer to racing in Lake Worth again at the end of September. I could have used water at … Continue reading More speed voluntarily
2000 yards. This workout had kicking, and I couldn't find a good set of the loaner cut short fins, so I did it with bare feet. I am slow. The longer intervals were ok, not taxing on the breathing. I think my arms do better and I'm getting better accustomed to a straight head and … Continue reading Better and not noticing the distances as much
40 mi. Today I thought we were going to Sandsprit park for 50 miles, but we agreed to go shorter and run 3 miles after the ride.

I have to take more pictures when I go so I have more interesting things to show in the … Continue reading Normal and not as slow as the last two.
4 mi. First one of the season since school was in, I tried it make it quick. I don't remember the intervals, I do remember trying ot cut through Ballen Isles which took WAY too long. And hitting most of the lights when trying to get home in time for John's school drive.
8mi. I watched John Reback zoom past me going a a 6 min mile pace, sweat some and had a moment to shower off. And I notice, every morning I come here it's 86 degrees. Lats year, 82. What's happening? I ran the first lap slower than usual, alone. And all the rest of 'em … Continue reading It’s always 86 now for the start?
2000 yards. This is what happens when the school starts up again... many empty lanes and cooler water. Today I did this workout, fun 100s and good flip turns on some of them... Warmup Set (300y) 200 build by 50s @ 4:45, 2 x 50 @ 1:10 Main Set (1400y) 14 x [4 x 25 … Continue reading Kinda quiet now
50 mi. The trip to Sandsprit Park was Scott, Chiara, Walter, Carolyn and I. Going to the lighthouse, we only went 17 mph. Once on the island, 20-22 to Bridge road. My seat felt as if it needed adjustment so I don't get uncomfortable or numb. Too late of rthis ride. I noticed the wind … Continue reading Speedier coming home
16mi. I arrived early and ran with Charlotte and Walter to PGA. I told everyone I'd be going a faster pace on the last 10 miles. Dave C showed up at Marcinski Rd, and al I did from that point on was entertain the crew with stories about what I've been up to lately. We … Continue reading Just when you think you’re gonna train hard
