Easy shake out run through the local Cemetery. It's a quarter mile from where I'm staying, and one loop is exactly one mile.
8:42 pace. 19C/66F, but with the 93% humidity, it felt hotter than that. Sure will be glad for tomorrow's lower temperature and humidity.
Then a trip back down to Miami Beach to do the lazy 'do nothing' thing that is perfect for the day before a marathon. Sat in the sun and watched all the gorgeous beach bodies go by.
Am meeting Tom and a few of his family/friends at Church for 5pm, and then we'll go out for dinner afterwards.
Oh, yesterday's snorkel adventure was exactly that. Definitely NOT the same as doing that in Maui! The little reef was off shore and the swells were pretty intense. And there were a LOT of jelly fish. I was the first one in, and quickly realized I had forgotten to put my flippers on. So, while trying desperately to dodge jelly fish and not being able to move too fast in the swells, I panicked and swallowed some sea water. Yuck.
I made it back to the boat to get the flippers, but now the taste of sea water and the huge swells led to me getting sea sick. After sitting for a while waiting for it to pass, it just got worse. And that, boys and girls, was the extent of my snorkelling. Ah well. The boat ride was fun. And honestly, I didn't want to ruin 16 weeks of excellent training with one stupid jelly fish sting on my leg. So, in hind sight, I was okay with not going back in the water. Besides, when I up chucked over board, there must have been several dozen fish drawn to it. I saw all I wanted to see in the fish family that day.
