It was way too humid yesterday after work to get a run in. I went and got groceries instead so now this morning I can get out for a run. Hopefully, before the sun comes out. It'scloudy and foggy right now. Still quite humid though. I will do my best.

Have a great day!

The heat and humidity have returned. Along with more storms. Went out for just a walk last night, but did squeeze in a little running. Just too humid. I'll see what today is like later on. We're having storms again this morning. I'm glad they came now and not last weekend for my 5k.

Thanks MIRAGE!

My goal today is to rule out anything medical. After that, it's going to be time to re-evaluate my fitness and change things to help turn things around for me. We're heading into the perfect time for races. Cooler temps., no humidity. I want to be able to take full advantage of it.

Have a great Monday!

Happy Training! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good Morning!

Another 5k race done! I'm staying consistant with my time this summer, but it's still tough. For the 1st time for a 5k, I had to walk a bit. I was in the last mile and I was exhausted. I can usually talk myself into keeping the pace, but not yesterday. The weather was a little on the humid side, but it was overcast and the temps. were in the 60's. The funny thing about this though, since I was a yr. older, I was now in the next age bracket and took 2nd place! I thought that was kind of funny.

I'm done with any races until Sept. now so I'm going to try and change up my running a bit and see if it helps. Plus I see my Dr. tomorrow and I will get his take on things.

Have a nice Sunday! Parade today and we're hoping for some much needed rain later on.

Good Morning!

This week is flying by. I have a run to do tonight and then it's a rest day tomorrow, followed by my 5k on Sat. T-storms in the forecast for Sat. I would take the overcast, but I hope no rain.

Have a great day!

Busy weekend and not good for running! I had an ok run Sat., but Sundays are usually my good days to run and it was terrible. I made it 1.25 miles. I had to walk the rest. I usually know when I can push thru it or not and yesterday was a not day. I've got a busy week ahead and my only decent days to run were Sat, Sun., and today. The rest of the week will be getting in some short runs if possible due to the fact I work. My legs don't do well after standing on them for 8 hrs. At least I'm not going to be trying to get a PR on Sat. I'm going to make it a fun run. (at least that's what I say now)

Have a nice day!

Good Morning!

Cutting back on my running has been good for me. I am signed up for a 5k next weekend, but I don't care what my time is. I've decided not to worry about it the rest of this year. I'm getting out and still running so that's what's important. I have a Dr. appt. in a couple of weeks and I'm going to discuss my issues with him.

Have a great Friday!

After a nice weekend, it's off to work today! Thunderstorms are in the forecast and rain is what we need here.

I ran both days this weekend and felt pretty good! Hit the Farmer's Market and got my weekly supply of healthy veggies!

Managed to do a 10k run yesterday. The weather was perfect! I ran at a 10:13 minute pace which is much better for my legs at this point. Today is strength training and I'm trying to work out what other days I can run. I'm trying to do just 4 runing days a week and then doing cross training in between. Alot different from last year when I ran 5-6 days.

Good Job MIRAGE!

A beautiful, cool morning! I love these mornings. I prefer warmer days, but I really enjoy the cool temps. for sleeping and running. Not that it's going to make my run any easier right now. I just keep plugging away, waiting for everything to fall back into place.

Have a nice Monday!

I decided to be smart today and headed down to the lake for a run before the sun came up. Started out warm, but there was a nice breeze. So I thought it was just a breeze. I got on the other side of the lake and the now wind stopped me in my tracks. After 2 miles running, ended up walking about 1 1/2 miles. Even that was hard. I finally got to where it wasn't as strong and took off running again. I ended up with a 5k run and at least 2 miles walking. I sure am glad that today is the end of it. I don't mind it being hot, it's the humidity I can't take.

Tomorrow is a rest day because I will be on my feet all day. Eating very healthy! Gotta love the bounty of fresh fruits and veggies this time of the year.

Have a great day!

The heat has arrived! Humidity came along with it. It's going to be a warm run this morning. The only positve thing is it's overcast and there is a little breeze. Not enough to get rid of the bugs!

Yesterday's run was a challenge. For some reason my legs just didn't want to cooperate. Even after a rest day. We'll see how today goes. I may need to take another rest day. Plus if the weather cooperates, we may go swimming which will be good for the legs.

Have a great day!

Well, today I discovered DOMS in my glutes! I know it was from my 10 mile bike during the Mock Tri I did yesterday. During that time, I focused & worked on the upstroke of my biking! I did it on purpose during the entire 10 miles! I also worked on my form. My swim was pretty good and overall, I'm ready for Saturday! Today, I'm chillin'!

Also, it's Farmer's Market day! The heat and humidity are returning! We've had beautiful weather but it's time to have summer back. It's only here for a short time.

Another very buggy run yesterday morning. You can't step outside without having the gnats and flies after you. Today will be an easy run/walk. Tomorrow is my rest day even though we may bike. Just can't let this beautiful weather we've been having go to waste.

Have a great day!

I'm working on my swim much like working this Program. Last night, in Open Water Swim Training in the Gulf, I dealt with a 2-3 foot chop. Despite the waves, I focused on a smooth continuous stroke, solid breathing, and finished well. No matter what you're training for, it's all about your determination and attitude. I own it in my running. I'm working to get that way in my swim! Ya just gotta believe you'll get there!

These temps. are not the norm. for us this time of year and in all honesty, I don't want them to last, but a few days of them feel good. It gives you that extra boost of energy that the heat and humidity have zapped from you. The bugs weren't quite as bad in the morning either. It helps to not have all of the sweat for them to stick to.

Have a ice Tues.!

10k run complete yesterday. The gnats are terrible here. I had to spit out quite a few. There's now way to avoid them. They were plastered on my forehead when I was done. We've just had a bumper crop of them this year. Not sure if I will do a short quick run this morning or wait until tomorrow. We're suppose to have rain and t-storms today.

Enjoy your Friday!

Good evening!

I've had a great day even though I worked. The weather has been really nice.

Tomorrow is hopefully going to be a long run. I did 3 miles this morning.

Have a nice evening!

I'm so thankful for my Open Water Swim training on Clearwater Beach, Tuesday nights! It's not just for Triathletes! It's for anyone who wants to cross train or just become one with the water!
emoticon
Last night I did a good 1/4 mile swim, got out using Dolphin Dives, ran back to my starting point, went back in, and did drills to strengthen my stroke! I worked with new members, building their confidence, and motivating them! It was the best time! After we gathered at Palm Pavilion Beach Cafe for a post-swim social!

I'm so blessed to have all my training groups in my life with so many BFFs! How can I fail? Search for running groups in your area!

Good Morning!

The humidity is gone for now. Plenty of sunshine. I'm debating getting out for a run today or taking a couple of days off. I worked all day yesterday and I work all day tomorrow. I'm thinking it would do my legs well to have a short break. I'm off after that so then I can get out for nice runs then.

Have a great day!

Rocked my Midnight Run last night and celebrated quite reasonably with my running partners! Signed up for the Longleaf Triathlon on October 12 and this evening I'm signing up to do Top Gun Triathlon July 26. My sis is coming down to see me do it. This was my first ever Tri and I will PB this bad boy!

Thanks for the article MIRAGE!

I do lots of stretching at work. I can go behind the counter and do them. I also wear my compression socks which usually help. The last couple of days though, the pain started at the top of my legs and ended up being both of my legs. Yesterday I went out for a 4 mile run and I was fine last night.

Legs of been aching the last couple of days. Not from running, but from standing at work for 8 hrs. I have managed to get out yesterday and today and will continue to work out the rest of the week.

When I went for my run this morning, I didn't feel like I was doing well. I felt slow and felt like I was struggling. It was breezy but very humid. Came home, plugged the Garmin in and was surprised to see that I actually did a really good run. I ran 4 miles and it was faster than the previous times for the same distance. I felt so much better knowing that I was having a tough time because I was running a faster pace.

It's still early for a lot of fresh veggies at the Farmer's Market, but I did manage to pick up a few things along with my scone! I've missed those!

Very humid this morning! I'm going to try and get a short run in and then we're headed to the Farmer's Market! I haven't been able to get there yet this year and I'm anxious to go and see what they have.

Have a great Saturday! Rain and storms later on here! emoticon

Sounds great MIRAGE!

Yesterday turned out to be a perfect running day! emoticon The perfect breeze, clouds, and not too warm. I ran 7 miles and if it weren't for my leg, I could have gone farther. I'm not willing to push it. I haven't had that good of a run in weeks. Hopefully it's the beginning of better runs again.

Have a great Friday!

It's a great day as I'm looking forward to my home Dunedin Run Club tonight. We start from the deck of Old Bay Cafe on Dunedin Marina and run south on Edgewater Lateral Park by the water. It's a straight shot down & back for a perfect 3.1 miles. You can watch the sun start to set on the run and catch the final setting on the Cafe deck! A glorious view to end the day and all of us locals never get tired of our sunsets! Just another day in Paradise!

Rest day today, sort of. I work and will be on my feet for 8 hrs. Funny how my legs can tolerate daily runs much better than the days I have to stand at work. Thank goodness for compression socks!
