Weekly Log 7-18-11 to 7-24-11

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! 

Weekly Total: 19 miles
Last Week: 43 miles
Year to Date: 1292 miles
