Monday: 0 - sick and/or anxious
Tuesday: 0 - see above
Wednesday: 0 - see above, but tried to run
Thursday: 5 miles - Rome Point trails alone. I decided to try and run again today and this time it worked. It was a hot day (88 and crazy humid) so I didn't want to try to do too much. I ran down to the point in 10:45. Then I weaved around my favorite single track trails until I reached the bay. The tide was just right for swimming, but I got as wet as one could without getting my shorts wet. I ran back through some more fun single track for a total of 42 minutes. This was a mental relief.
Friday: 0 - the only good time to run today would have been at 4AM. Temperature maxed out at 103 where I work, but only mid 90's at home.
Saturday: 10 miles - Shumunkanuc Hill roads and Vin Gormley trail alone. I left my house pretty early (6:38AM) to run 10 miles and feel like a runner again. I was a little disappointed with my 2 mile split (15:00), because it felt like I was working harder than that, but decided to chalk it up to the high humidity and the unusual time for me. The deer flies were thick in the woods. I wished I had remembered to wear my glasses. I turned around after 5 miles (best guess by time). I was feeling great out there. As I ran the trail I was envisioning a situation where Muddy and I were teaming up in the Lil Rhody Runaround tearing up the course. I even ran into a pleasant mtn biker. Back on the road, I was ready to climb the hill. The first mile, all uphill, I did in 7:30 (I ran down it in 7:28 earlier). The last up and down mile I completed in 7:18 and was a disgusting sweaty mess when I went back inside my house. Total time: 75:18.
Sunday: 4 miles - Shumunkanuc Hill roads and trails alone. This run was cut short due to thunder and deer flies. I hate running in this soup!
