AM: 3 WU 2000,1600,1200,800,400 2.25 CD

PM: 5 miles + kettlebell routine

Got some good work in. I'm getting in better shape. 6:23,5:00,3:41,2:25,66. Decided after that 400 that I'd rather do a 10 mile MP tempo than 12 x 400 at 3k to mile pace. Getting too old for that super fast shit.

AM: 11 miles then we went kayaking for an hour

PM: 5 miles after the sun set

The trick in Florida is to run before the sun comes out or when it sets. It's quite comfortable though a little humid. Best part is you can go shirtless the whole time and your face is not numb from a cold February wind. Nor is your nose sore from constant snot flow. Nice change of pace. Getting up early to get a workout in tomorrow.

PM: 4 miles at a local park. 

Pretty windy by the beach but it was good because it helped keep me cool as it was humid. Glad I got out before the sun came up. Tougher workout in the wind but feeling good

AM: 12 miles along the Hollywood FL boardwalk.  Going to miss the nice, laid back atmosphere of this beach town. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live here year round though. Way too tropical and humid. I'm a northerner at heart and enjoy having seasons.

PM: 35 min pool run outside
