O what day....


Doc's Beach House beach

O what a night. I was sleeping so well when the alarm went off this morning. I didn't want to get out of bed! It was one of those cold summer nights, you know just as I went to bed a thunderstorm went thru lighting up the sky and shaking the windows and the AC is set low! It rained long enough for me to fall asleep listening to the sound of rain drops. It was cold since I left the AC set at 74*. So as the alarm went off I was huddled under the blankets nice and cozy!

Today was a fartlek run of 10 miles. I took my tennis ball with me to help with the fartlek (you bounce the ball and speed up to catch it and then slow down etc.). Once again it took me 2 miles to get loose and I even did some stretching while the GPS was hunting for a satellite. So from mile 3 to 8 I just kinda played with the ball speeding up and slowing down.., at 8 miles I decided I had had enough of this and just ran and finished up in 93:24 that's with a stop at the Fitness center to full the water jug.

Today is a swim day at lunch...the pool water has been to warm as of late..it's 86* so after a few laps I'm hot...maybe I should bring some ice cubes? Over the weekend I'm going to Bonita Beach (Docs Beach House) so I can swim in the Gulf. I can get a spot to leave my gear then when I'm done I can have a beer or two!

Hey I'm of work tomorrow to make a long 4 day weekend!

I have run for years and never heard of the tennis ball thing. I'm with Shelley and going to use it.
