AM - 5.5 miles around 6 am this morning.  Day off with some extra sleep time yesterday was helpful.

PM - lunchtime - 8.5 miles on the treadmill at the Carillon Wellness Center next to my office.  Very pleased with how easy this run was at 7:15 pace - just putting in miles for the next couple of weeks.

PM - lunchtime 7.0 miles around Carillon and Feathersound on a muggy overcast and sometimes rainy day.  Pace was decent to slow, but the effort was a little uncomfortable - I attribute that to the 98% humidity - though without the sun it was not nearly as warm as it has been.  Thunderstorms this morning kept me in bed and away from running, so I will do a second run after work this evening.

 PM - second run - after work - 6 miles at home past the high school and to Tampa Road and back up Belcher.  Still rainy but not as muggy for some reason.  Decent run.  Went out to dinner with Riley as Tracy and the other girls went to Sea World today with my niece who is visiting us for the week.  Riley had swim practice and summer homework to finish, so she couldn't go with them.  Went to Selmon's restaurant - watched the Rays win against the Royals.

PM - on the treadmill at lunch due to constant thunderstorms today - 10 miles at primarily 7:15-7:20 pace.  After the first mile or two, I settled into a nice cadence and was relaxed and aerobic throughout.

PM - ran about 6.5 miles around the Carillon office complex at lunchtime including a couple of parking structures to stay out of the heat.  There was a light rain when the sun was still out for a short time which only served to make things more steamy and sauna-like.  This was a pretty uncomfortable and miserable slog - not the least bit enjoyable.  Hopefully things will be better this evening, or I will hit the treadmill instead.

 

PM - after work I decided to run at the soccer fields while waiting for Delaney during her training.  8.5 miles from Ed Radice through some neighborhoods to Race Track Road heading south and then turned on Countryway and headed into West Chase and returned.  Better run than this afternoon - but still not great.  Turned out to be profitable, as I found a $20 bill on the ground.  Well-timed too, as I passed a 7-11 within a mile or so, and bought a Gatorade with it before finishing the last couple of miles.  I think I have probably found money on the roads totalling over $500 in the years I have been running.

PM - 20.00 miles on the treadmill today - I had planned to run with the group this morning but had to change my schedule to accomodate for my daughter's soccer practice and a couple of other things - the good news was that I got some extra sleep.  Too hot and humid outside for a long run during the day, so I hit the gym.  Met up with a friend and his kids at the FC Tampa Bay soccer game  afterwards this evening while Tracy and the girls were shopping (back to school tax holiday).  Decent run until about 16 miles when I thought about cutting it short a few times - more out of boredom than anything else.  Kept it at 7:30 pace for most of the workout.
