Monday: 7 miles in Pisgah w/Jimmy. We did Fullam Pond loop hoping the cool temps would temper the deerflies. No dice. It was still amazing weather despite the little devils. 68 degrees!
Tuesday: I ran/powerhiked up Daniels Mtn from the Plain Rd parking area w/Jimmy. I paused at Moon Ledge then finished off Daniels Mtn Loop and back down. I have no idea how long it took because I wasn't wearing my watch. I know the terrain was steep and technical. I'm calling it 6 for my purposes though I'm sure it's way less actual mileage. Nice rainy day run.
Wednesday: 7 w/track workout at Keene High. I ran the 3 mile warm-up trying to hang with the crew of Keeneyans. I fell off by about 30 seconds. Nice tempo run! I then did 4x200, 400, 2x200 for 1600m of work. I averaged a hair under 43 for the two hundreds and ran the 400 in 94. Beautiful weather for a workout - had a late summer feel to it. I got out on the cool down before everyone else, so I could go my own pace. I suffered from the roads and was happy to cool off in the stream afterwards. Local Burger after and some singing at Boj's made for a complete night. Jimmy was very disappointed with me when I put my running clothes on and drove off. I'll have to make it up to him tomorrow.
Thursday: 7 in Pisgah. I ran Reservoir, South Link, and Broad Brook out and back w/Jimmy. Great run. My legs were a little tired from yesterday, but I felt energized by the perfect weather - 62 degrees, crisp and sunny. I enjoyed Broad Brook. It's easy terrain with nice shade and streams for Jimmy.
pm: 3 miles at Fun Run. I ran the 2.3 tonight in 17:18. Beautiful night for racing.
Friday: 0. I drove down w/ Gina and Jimmy to Rhody. Had fun with family.
Saturday: I caught a couple stripers early am w/Pard from Shelter Harbor/Weekapaug Beach. I'd never been to this spot before. After fishing we drove back to NH. Today was an absolutely beautiful day - low 80s with a dewpoint of 58. I mowed the lawn and vacuumed out all the Jimmy hair out of my car with help from Gina.
pm: 4 miles in Pisgah w/ Jimmy (Broad Brook). Nice evening run. Cranked on the way back.
Sunday: 9 in Pisgah w/Jimmy ( Reservoir to N. Ponds back to Baker - Hubbard). I saw a coyote on Horseshoe Rd while driving into the parking lot. Nice run. I couldn't believe the logging going on at Hubbard! There was some cryptic note about the trails are still open following the sale - WTF? Is the state of NH selling sections of Pisgah to loggers that it took from residents back in the 60's? I hope I'm misinterpreting this. Cranked the last hill in 2:37 despite being tired today.
