15 miles. A Tuesday morning run turns into a big effort for half marathon training. I don't remember doing a workout like this even for a full marathon. Today I did 3 miles of warmup, with two up and down the bridge. Then we started the one mile intervals at "goal pace." My goal is … Continue reading Galen Rupp’s workout?
7.5mi. I would have thought four days shy of October that maybe I'd be experiencing better morning run weather. Not yet! I arrived when Teresa's car full of Abacoa runners pulled up. We ran a warmup lap in the parking lot, then went for the bridge. I did 3 laps with the girls, then the … Continue reading Cooler is relative
20mi. I wasn't thinking of running 20 miles today, 16 was going to be enough to do solo. I missed yesterday's run because I was announcing at the Miami Children's Health Foundation 5k. So today I couldn't skip, the NY Marathon is only 6 weeks away. I started alone at Dunkin Donuts at 5:30am. I … Continue reading Forcibly long
7.5 mi We went early and had time to run a warmup lap with Teresa and Jen. Today we missed Paul, but we did have a breeze from the west. That makes a big difference both ways. We ran and talked with the two girls, John did very well being it was definitley early for … Continue reading Bridge with John
Training Group in the Northern Palm Beach area focusing on the Palm Beach Half Marathon - Dec. 8th, 2013
4 mi. With no intervention from dad, today JOhn woke up on time and was ready to attend his first morning track workout. All the stories from all the years and here he goes - meeting the people, seeing the differences of running in the dark and working through Paul's intervals. It was calm and … Continue reading John’s first laps
4 mi. I skipped on the cooldown mile, and interrupted the first 1000m interval with 150 to go for a bathroom visit. Good mix of thinsg to do, none at a pace any faster than I'll run Sunday - 7:30 or slower. I like that so many people are coming to the A1A Marathon, a … Continue reading Good day for endurance folk
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!
16 mi. I started at 5am with Walter, a run to PGA Blvd and back where I brought a 12oz water bottle and left it at FPL for the way back. Once at the store, I saw Chiara and Suzanne ready for their 10 miles. I ran with both of them and Steve Bernstein, discussing … Continue reading LSD – Long silly distance
7.5 mi Bridge running is sometimes biased in that tere is no breeze heading one direction, and the other way is a relif. This morning was a mildest of relief breezes, I was hot even doing the 1 mile warmup. Charlotte came near the end of Lap #1, Scott Hicks came near the middle of … Continue reading No cool laps today
