Monday: 7 miles - Rome Point trails (with Brad) & Wickford roads (solo). A nice relaxing run on my lunch break - 53 minutes.
Tuesday: 13 miles - Ryan Park trails (7 mile loop) plus 6 miles roads (to/from the park) alone. I haven't done this run in awhile, and I'm glad I chose it. My legs felt tight at the start, and I didn't have a good gauge on how this run would go. My first three miles (roads) came in at 7:25 pace. I picked it up a little in the woods. The footing was a little tricky in my road shoes and with the fallen leaves. My 7 mile trail split was just under 51 minutes. I felt particularly strong on the last 3 road miles - I think my body is now used this distance - finishing up in 20 minutes flat (6:20 final mile). Total time: 1:33:40.
Wednesday: 8 miles - Wickford roads alone. A nice late afternoon run. My body seems to recover quicker now. My pace was faster than I anticipated, and I was feeling good, so I picked up the last 4 miles trying to get under 7 minute pace average for the run. I missed it - total time 56:19 - but it was fun trying.
Thursday: 7 miles - Ryan Park trails solo. I wasn't sure if I would run today - I felt tired (physically and mentally). I couldn't resist the warm sunny weather so I decided to run as slowly as I care to go. I left my watch in the car and trotted along. I really enjoyed myself out there. My plan is do something similar tomorrow and then rest Saturday. Sunday, I'm registered for a 5K. Time to get 19 minutes....
Friday: 8 miles - Rome Point trails (some beach) with Dan. A good day for a run! My body feels refreshed and ready to rock on Sunday.
Sunday: 5K - Jamestown Jack-O-Lantern Jog - 19:33. New PR by 39 seconds! More on this later.
