Monday, July 11th – swim at the Carrollwood YMCA (1,100 yards). This was my first swim at my new Y (*tear*) and it was kind of interesting because their pool is deep in the middle, but shallow on the ends and there were a TON of kids everywhere. Turns out, there is actually a nicer, newer pool affiliated with the same YMCA, just around the corner. So I will definitely be checking out that pool very soon.
Tuesday, July 12th – late afternoon run down Starkey Boulevard. Landed up being just shy of 5.5 miles, but it was SO hot!
Wednesday, July 13th – Exercise on demand. If you haven’t tried this out and you have Brighthouse or Verizon, it’s AWESOME! http://www.exercisetv.tv/on-demand)
Thursday, July 14th – race to the weekend with the Suncoast Striders and Rhonda (who finally returned from Wisconsin - shans cheese curds!). Another 5 miler, still hot out at 5 am, but I have to say that morning runs are my favorite.
Friday, July 15th – Picnic Island Adventure Race #3. 3.6(ish) miles. Complete results here: http://www.coolrunning.com/results/11/fl/Jul15_Picnic_set3.shtml
Saturday, July 16th – 8 miler with Rhonda down Longleaf.
Sunday, July 17th – REST! Ahhh J
Ran a total of 21(ish) miles, not too shabby for the first week of marathon (ahhh!) training.
