5mi - Again the track is under construction at Benjamin HS, so we run 300m intervals in the parking lot. Anita comes for her first dash since November, Perry is doing Treasure Coast marathon this weekend as training for the JD State Park 50k in April. I stayed as close ass I wanted to Aldo, … Continue reading Street wise in February

29mi. I left the house into a 16mph SSE wind, so NOrthlake Eastbaound was upstream. Once I turned on Military Trail, I benefitted from the wind, but not the traffic signals. I had to complete stop and unclip at Northlake, Burns Rd, PGA, Donald Ross, Frederick Small, Toney Penna and then eastbound on Insdiantown Road, I … Continue reading Hills or wind? Same as..
8mi. Two days after running a 5k at Riverbend Park, I may have been inspired to run the hills with some purpose. I did the mile warmup in 83 degree sun, starting at 3:50pm. Once I hit the bridge for the laps up and down, I decided to sprint all the uphills. This meant 12 … Continue reading Sprinting up!
7mi. Today's bridge workout would be the easiest run to skip or sleep through. I am still feeling Sunday's A1A effort in my quads and lack of flexibility. I did the exercises before driving to the run, and arrived at 4:52 with only Paul there already starting his warm up. We spoke a bit and … Continue reading So necessary!
4500M Maybe the 300m format of intervals has us confused. We do 1500 as the warmup/cooldown, and today we covered 4500 and were done. I ran middle of the pack with Sunday's marathon in Ft Lauderdale ahead. Everything feels good for that... 15oom warmup 300m w/150m recovery 1200m w/150m recovery 600m w/150m recovery 300m w/150m recovery 900m w/150m … Continue reading 300 shy
8mi. I woke up at 1:40am. I stayed awake despite trying to sleep again, but no luck. At 2:40am, I figured if I was going to be awake "thinking," then I might as well be running. So I flung back the covers and got dressed quickly to drive to the bridge. I arrived at 2:55am … Continue reading 3am?
72 miles. The ride from CityPlace in West Palm Beach to Dolphins Sunlife Stadium was really fun! We had done our fundraising and prepared with a few good windy rides on weekends leading up to the event. Jessica had done this before from Boca to the stadium, this was our first attempt at 72 miles. … Continue reading Dolphin Cycling Challenge
16mi. A new Garmin 220, a chance to do a long run with Yves, and a windy Friday afternoon. That's the abbreviated version of today's adventure. We met at Loggerhead Park at 1:30, Yves first run on Juno and Jupiter Beach. He had completed 10 miles earlier today, his coach gave him a 2 hr … Continue reading More than I’d give myself
5mi. Seemed like everyone else knew it would rain during our workout - except for the guy that didn't check his radar app. I knew the track would be under construction, so it was expected we'd run around the parking lot. Francie measured a circle of 300m to use as a track. Randi was reluctant … Continue reading Around the lot to beat the rain
7mi. I am not feeling cold as I arrive, temp was 55 at home and now 58 at the bridge. Only Paul is there, he chats a bit about an upcoming 10k he's doing this weekend. We also spoke about Erica winning the Race For The Cure. Both Jens show up at the same time, … Continue reading SLEEVES!
