Tue, 11 Dec 2018 07:00:00 Sun, Dec 09, 2018 7.75 miles. Hood route to Legacy Trail and over the stupid waste of money bridge and back. 7 a.m. start. 75 degrees. 100% humidity. 70 degree dew point. The Run felt good, but not as good as yesterday. Sun, 09 Dec 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Dec 08, 2018 7.75 miles. Hood route to legacy trail, and over the brand new stupid waste of money overpass over laurel road and back. After watching this thing be built for the last year and a half, I HAD to run over it. Now that construction is done, I will miss the P.O.P. at this location for sure. My feelings about the new stupid overpass aside, this was a really great run for me. Quick paced and smooth and comfortable. Sat, 08 Dec 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Dec 06, 2018 5.5 miles. Hood route. 46 degree start. I'm proud of myself for not over dressing like a Floridian in Chilly weather. Just my usual running clothing.

Something below 60?&nbsp;</p> Tue, 27 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Sun, Nov 25, 2018 <p>Still a bit groggy from being sick. Drove back to Venice.&nbsp;</p> Sun, 25 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Nov 24, 2018 <p>SICK.</p> <p>I was supposed to do the 3rd Fruit Cove Loop today. I look forward to the 3 days of running up here, but it was not to be. I only got 2. I was supposed to drive home today, as well. But that is now pushed to Sunday. I spent Saturday in the lazy boy, watching the Gator game with the volume on low, feeling like my body had been beat with a sack of rocks. I was kind of on a running come back, when I got sick. A&nbsp;couple of good runs there. Oh well.&nbsp;</p> <p>Everyone up here (besides me) was sick for Thanksgiving. So we had it on Friday. Good food. But this will be a Thanksgiving to remember.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 24 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Nov 23, 2018 Fruit cove run 2. A bit hotter than it was yesterday. Still felt really smooth. Fri, 23 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Nov 22, 2018 Thanksgiving in Fruit Cove! The run felt great. About 5 degrees cooler here than in Venice. It made a big difference.

I feel a lot better about running today than I did last weekend. I am still slow as all get out, but I am now doing SOME speedy stuff, which is better than none. Sun, 18 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Nov 17, 2018 7.5 Mi. Hood route to Legacy Trail and back. 7 a.m. start. Longest run since race day in early October. Great weather this morning. 50 degrees. 100% humidity 50 degree dew point at the start. The air is crisp? This is really foreign territory! Sat, 17 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Nov 15, 2018 3.5 miles. Hood route. Less than 70 degrees for about 5 minutes this morning! Thu, 15 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Nov 14, 2018 2 mile soccer field workout. Lots of sprints, pushups, and situps. 6 am start. 72 degrees and humid. Dew soaked clothes at the end of it. Wed, 14 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Nov 13, 2018 <p>6 am start. Boy #1 wanted to run with me, as extra conditioning for soccer. I was pretty fired up about that. Since I am at a low-ish point running wise, there would be no pressure to acheive anything here, just to enjoy running with my son. I noticed we were moving pretty quick, so at 3/4 mile deep, I&nbsp;timed the next mile. 7:35! Whoa! I knew I was working, but the pace was conversational for the kid. I timed the next mile, and we dialed it back, because I was getting worried about re-aggravating the left hip. 7:46. Not as dialed back as I was&nbsp;shooting for. So I took the lead for the last 3/4 mile, to set the snail-turtle-sloth pace. He tolerated that until the last 100m, or so, where he dropped me to the finish. I <s>am fairly certian</s> KNOW this kid will beat me at next year&#39;s St. Paddy&#39;s Day race.&nbsp;</p> <p><em>Convince yourself that everything is alright, &#39;cos&nbsp;it already is, &#39;cos&nbsp;it already is.&nbsp;</em></p> Tue, 13 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Sun, Nov 11, 2018 3.5 miles. Hood route. I ahould have sat this one out. Sun, 11 Nov 2018 07:00:00
