MyHowl: Dec 6 - 12

Friday
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.
Wednesday
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).


Monday
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.


Sunday
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.
