28 mi. I knew by checking the weather report yesterday that the winds from Tropical Storm Debbie would still be pressing us at 15mph from the SSW. This means that my ride would be legendary going up Military Trail, then a struggle coming all the way home from Jupiter Inlet Park. It was dark when … Continue reading Breakthrough.

2000m It's getting easier to just hop in the LA Fitness pool and tick off a mile. Sometimes I feel like I go in stagger step pulls, like I'm accelerating then I slow then I accelerate again. The pool area was very warm today, dark in one corner because I think some lights are burnt … Continue reading Another lunch mile
8 mi. Walter and I were the lone 5am starters today. We did the warmup laps in the parking lot, noticing it was very hot (80 deg) and humid, but a stiff breeze from the remnants of Tropical Storm Debbie was keeping us cool. We hit the bridge and for the second week in a … Continue reading Breezy and thankful for it!
16mi. I started with Steve and Chiara and Julie Garberg, down to PGA and back at 5am. Chiara's knee has been strained so she stopped a few times to stretch it out. I also took a restroom break at French Connection on the way back. I noticed later in the day that Chiara posted on … Continue reading Long talking run w/Walter
5mi Track today with Erica calling out the sprints. More of a bonus was I brought my bike for the forst of this summer's 20 mi post rides. Track was good, I ran w/Erica on the intervals, always trailing especially on the 1000m and the 800m, I was 50m behind by the end of those. … Continue reading Track and a summer ride
30mi. I left the house today at 5:45am, ordinarily a ride from Suzanne's house would start an hour later. It was raining hard but I didn't fuss at all today, I just went with flashing lights blazing. I did change out of the wacky white suspenders because they would be irreparably stained. I went Northlake to Military … Continue reading Stormy solo ride
8 mi. There were no lights on today, even though prior weeks had a well-lit path on the south side of the bridge. I ran with Chiara in the company of Adrienne, Paul and Lennae. The breeze from the east felt very good, it was a challenge seeing where to go with all the cones. … Continue reading Bridge at dark
50 mi. I arrived kinda early at the group ride so I left by myself. The wind was 1-20mph from the Northeast, so it was all over both sides of the ride it seemed. I kept a 20 mph pace most of the time, finding my way to US-1 for the rolling hills on the … Continue reading 50 solo cycling miles
31 mi. I started at 3:20am from the Running Sports store. It was breezy and humid, wet streets from recent passing storms. I had the amiphod bottle on my waist (with Carbo-Pro) and a hand held strap bottle with water. I was thankful to God that even without saying a prayer, the breeze was washing … Continue reading Titanic run (with no tragedy at the end)
2000m A quick LAF visit, swim the laps and dry off for work again. I tried to concentrate on keeping my arms long and using more breath to get out of the swim slow rut.
