Monday: 4 w/Jimmy in Pisgah. Beautiful day - crisp, sunny, cool weather. Legs felt a little flat today.
Tuesday: 0. Painted the second coat of the nursery. Tame Teal - Boom! (Mac the Knight shout out). Boj came over in the pm and we worked on the driveway. He did 90 % of the work - he's that guy. I didn't run because my back of my knee was an issue all day. I sort of moped around in a funk thinking I'm injured.
Wednesday: Went to a meeting in the mid morning, so I didn't run. My hammy/knee is noticeable.
pm: Rolled down to Keene High track w/Greg. I ran the 3 mile warm up and my back felt tight and the knee was a little sensitive, but it was go time. I ran 8x200 with 43 average. I jogged 200 rest. Felt stiff but decent. I bonked a little after as I hadn't eaten since 10:30 am. Cooled off in the creek, grabbed some food at Fritz's, and played golf at Boj's. The leg held up. Feeling good. 5 miles total.
Thursday: 5.5 w/Jimmy in Pisgah. We did Kilburn Town Forest Trail, Baker, Davis. Nice run. A little humid. Leg was not an issue. And I'm getting back my mojo - Bojo.
pm: 4.5 miles at Fun Run. Great turnout tonight - about 15 runners. The humidity was back. I started to push the 2.3, but the humidity was killing me and I shut it down on the second lap. Another 17:5x performance.
Friday: 3 miles on the HRT w/Jimmy. I saw 5 deer on this run. Legs a little sluggish from two days of speed in a row. Turned 36 today. I went fishing at the Ashuelot and caught 5 smallies. We met Greg and Jen for dinner at the Whetstone. Fun day.
Saturday: 12 miles w/Jimmy in Pisgah (1:45). I ran Reservoir, Ridge, Baker, Reservoir from the Horseshoe Parking area. I didn't take any gels or water because I wasn't planning on going long. Once I got out there, I felt pretty good. I saw a broad wing hawk with a red squirrel in its talons on the ridge. Guzzled water as soon as I got home - I was thirsty! On a non-running note: I've been married for 3 years today to Gina. Happy Anniversary Honey!
Sunday: 5.5 w/Jimmy in Pisgah. We ran up Broad Brook. We ran into the same woman running with her dog twice. She didn't look too happy about sharing the trails. Oh well - we enjoyed our run. My left leg hamstring issue was noticeable at the start and in the morning before my run. It loosened up after about 5 minutes. I would like to take a dip in the healing Putney waters today.
