8 mi. A warmup mile with Walter, then 6 bridge miles and good chatting with Teresa and Walter. Chelsea overslept so no show for her. I ran my final lap with Adrianna, who also did the cooldown mile with me. I saw Carolyn's new car too! The hills felt good, especially going down. Conditions were … Continue reading Good hills
21 mi. This was a much more humid day with less wind than last Saturday. I ran with Gary and Janine Peart to PGA and back after ticking off one DR bridge lap to Prosperity Farms Rd. Then I joined with Dave Capperelli for the 10.5 store to Inlet run. One more trip over the … Continue reading Another 21
2000 yards. I felt neat leaving the crummy weather outside to get a swim workout in. I was trying new clear TYR goggles and I remember noticing the shortness of breath I had in the early warmup laps. I did the 300s and had some thoughts about form, but I felt my breathing needed the … Continue reading First in awhile
18 mi. I came ready to ride, not expecting that anyone else would really do it with the impending winds and rain, plus kids are back in school this week... When I got to the track, Lilia said she'd ride and that she had all of her things. Adrienne said no, Erica no, but Lilia … Continue reading Ride the storm
5 mi. Today's workout was in question with Hurricane Irene offshore. There was a 60% chance of rain, but none around when I left the house this morning. Paul ran the show, Erica, Tom Matese, Gary, Perry, Kyle, Teresa, Walter (back a day early from Oz) Robert and Matt K. were already doing their first … Continue reading Go Irene!
18mi. Today was to be a school drop off for John and early to work. Really early, like get there 1.5 hrs before the building is ready for a day's work. I spoke with Suzanne the night before and found she does a morning ride or brick most Wednesdays, I think if it's short enough, … Continue reading Surprise ride!
8 mi. Having visited Lululemon last night, I was able to convince, guilt or inspire Chelsea to run early at the bridge. Teresa and Robert also started close to 5am, let's keep this pattern rolling! I ran 3 laps with Chelsea, then she took a rest room break, one with Kyle Smith, and the last … Continue reading
50 mi. What could go wrong on a sunny Sunday morning with the group? I arrived kinda late, in time to use my refurbished pump and also help Lilia get her bike ready. I had the new Garmin in Biking mode, all my drinks and treats, I was ready. I started a bit after the … Continue reading Some wind, no tech
21 mi. First run in fire colored Aasics Gel Nimbus 13, and good attempt at using the Garmin 305 too. I started at 4:40 with an over the bridge jaunt. I kept thinking, "I'll be happy when I come back here," meaning I'd almost be done with a long one by then. I found Gary … Continue reading D squared once more.
5 mi. Erica takes the workout during Paul's absence - he's at USAT AG Nationals. Erica did not do a "symmetrical" workout, distancing herself and the intervals from the would-be guessers. I encountered hard rain under the PGA bridge of 95 on Military Trail. I told everyone about it, but I was pushed aside as … Continue reading Go red go.
