Masters swim

I went and did masters swim tonight at The Brooks YMCA. I really like their pool. It is a lap pool and it is only about 3.5 ft deep. Tonight we swam 4300 yards. I got confused and did something different on one of the sets and ended up swimming about 300 extra yards. I was looking over at the people in the next lane thinking they couldn't count. Having no clue it was me who couldn't read the workout off the board. At the end of the class we did a couple of relay races, we had 3 people in 2 lanes and swam a 100 yard relay. It was a lot of fun and each lane ended up winning a race. I am hoping this becomes a regular thing.

Outback Half Marathon

Thanksgiving weekend was a busy one for us. We got up early in the morning and participated in a Half marathon (13.1 Miles) It was Tami's first and my second. I set a new pr of 2:23:53 A 30 minute improvement over my last half I did back in February. I was really happy with my time and also how much I have improved. After finishing the race we walked home and covered another 3.8 miles. This got us our 17 miles we needed for our training. We are training for a full marathon next February 21, 2010. On Saturday we went and ran at the Jacksonville Running Company. I ran 6.83 miles. This morning Tami and I went and meet Darcy & Marilyn and went to a spinning class and then went and swam 1,000 yards in the pool.

We had my Family over for dinner on Thanksgiving and we also had my Mom come over for dinner tonight. Overall a great holiday filled with lots of training and family and friends.

Life is good!!!!

Tonights run through the neighborhood with Tami and Andrew. I felt real good on the run. It was a little cool when we got started but it was a really comfortable temp. for running. We kept a pretty good pace and even threw in a few sprints. I had just came from masters swim class and I was feeling good. I am enjoying the running who knew that would ever happen.
