PM - 8.0 miles easy from Longboat Key to Sarasota and back.  We are staying on the beach in Sarasota for a soccer tournament in which Delaney's club team is playing.  Weather issues resulting in an adverse ruling on a game yesterday and a late goal in today's game by the other team ended their streak of reaching the finals in tournaments - so we have the afternoon and tomorrow free.  Always a bright side...

PM - back at home 6.0 miles in a very warm humid windy day courtesy of the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee - not the least bit enjoyable.

AM - easy shake out run - was shortened to 3 miles when weather turned into a heavy downpour with blinding winds and lightining...Yesterday evening I did not get in my second run because of the same...Gonna need to hit the tready later today if this keeps up.

 

PM - workout on the treadmill:  2 x 20 mins at 6:24 pace with a 10 min rest and 2 mile warm up and cool down.  Little tough getting through the latter half of the first one but felt good about the workout when I was finished.  Total of just a little over 10 miles.

AM - easy 6 miles in a light rain - a bit fatigued from yesterday's threshold workout.  Feeling a bit tired this week.

 

PM - 7.25 on the treadmill at lunch.  Nothing special.

PM - lunchtime - 6.5 miles with 6 striders at the end.  Less humid today, but even so, I felt pretty fatigued - with an overall malaise from start to finish on this one.  Regret not running early this morning.

 

PM - second run 8.25 in Tampa during Delaney's soccer practice.  Had a very pleasant run - sharp contrast to the earlier run today.  Humidity was only about 60% - probably the biggest difference.

PM - after a long day of driving to Altamonte Springs and back for Delaney's soccer game today - I started my run at around 6:30 pm - and just had very little energy - so I stopped at 2.5 hours and called it a night - right around 17.5 miles.
