MyHowl: Dec 6 - 12

Today was goodbye day. Dramatic indeed, but it is okay. A little bit more normalcy (I hope); although none of this is due to my choosing. Still, I said farewell. Not as had dreamed it would be, but I am off and starting new - again. Florida all of the great and all of the not so great, is over. It is time to bring my recovery to its highest heights.
23 days left in December/2015 as of right now I have logged 2,816.65 running miles for the year. Although I didn't start the year with this new goal of 3000+ for 2015, if I average 7.97 miles per day (my yearly average is well over 8), I will reach 3000 logged running miles (or 8.2 miles per day or a solid 57 mile per week average - including rest days).

The good news is that I am finally sure that I cannot win back the love of Mimi. I feel okay about it for the first time too. I am not pleased about how it happened and may never know why; and it doesn't seem to make as much of a difference anymore. I am committed to not embarrassing myself anymore and moving on. As for the girl, the distance may be for always as far as I can tell and I am not much of a swimmer; floating away. Sure I am typing these words as a tool of coping. But the truth is, I feel fine and things are looking good moving ahead. I have most of the week left in Deerfield Beach and my long lost sister, Lisa is here and that is enough. When I get back to Denver, Dick Dime 2.0 will be unleashed and it is going to be most excellent.

First day back to the swamp. So different now but I got to see my beautiful sister, Lisa. I am glad that despite my situation, I made the trip. Granted it is not the glorious relationship save that I dreamed of, but I know what I have to do now - for me.


Training this week: Run 57.3 mi -  Bike 0 (0 rest days)


Fri Run 10.12 mi - 1:24:30 - 8:20 pace - 142 avg hr - 21' elevation gain
Looks like this will be my last run in Florida. I fly home early  tomorrow.

Thurs Run 5.6 mi - 50:28 - 9:00 pace - 132 avg hr - 18' elevation gain
Running in South Florida is not pleasant. It is hard to believe how many miles that I logged while I lived here for 5 years. It is so much more difficult than in the mountains.

Wed Run/walk 8.1 mi 1:30:11 - 11:08 pace - 136 avg hr - 17' elevation gain
The South Florida swamp won this battle. I had to walk most of the second 4 miles.
Tues Run 11.13 mi - 1:30:49 - 8:09 pace - 144 avg hr - 27' elevation gain
A Good South Florida run. I totally realize why I had to get out of this state. I will take the Colorado mountain air over this, any time

Mon Run 10.25 mi - 1:24:49 - 8:16 pace - 138 avg hr - 18' elevation gain
I started in Deerfield Beach and ran north on A1A into a headwind to Boca Raton and back. Humid too.

Sun Run 12.1 mi - 1:37:447 - 8:04 pace - 138 avg hr - 0' elevation gain
Back in the florida swamp. It was actually a nice day today.
