Summer Week 7

7/28 - Monday:  0.  No time to get out for a run today.  The babies are on a new sleep schedule since the trip to Rhody.

7/29 - Tuesday:  0.  Babies back on schedule, but I had no energy to run.

7/30 - Wednesday:  3.  Ran the PTSA loop.  Form felt very tight in the first mile then I loosened up and was able to cruise a little faster.  Tiring effort.  I lifted upper x2 after summer school.

7/31 - Thursday:  Triple goose egg already this week.  I can't find a window.

8/1 - Friday:  7 w/team in Pisgah.

8/2 - Saturday:  0.

8/3 - Sunday:  5 at Kilburn.  Hammered the finish climb and descent.

Summer Week 6

7/21 - Monday:  4 around town starting from the boat landing.  Really slow pace.  I felt tight + full from just eating.  Pretty nice night for a run.

7/22 - Tuesday:  4 on Kilburn Loop at night.  A little more humid and hotter than the last few nights.  I thought about jumping in the pond, but the light was fading fast.

7/23 - Wednesday:  0.  Thunderstorms when I had a window to run.

7/24 - Thursday:  0.  Drove down to Rhody after summer school ended.  We had fun celebrating my mother's birthday with cousins.

7/25 - Friday:  0.  Took the babies to the beach for the first time.

7/26 - Saturday:  4.  Snuck out in the morning for an out 'n back on the Vin Gormley trail.  Lots of deer flies.

7/27 - Sunday:  7 w/Pard.  I suffered on this run.  Pard was feeling his oats and I was feeling vacation living.  Always fun to get dropped by Dad!

Weekly total:  19 miles.

Summer Week 5

7/14 - Monday:  0.  Another action packed day.

7/15 - Tuesday:  4.  I ran at 7 at the Kilburn loop with the boys' team captain.  Humid night, I had cancelled the get optional run at 2pm because tornadic conditions were forecasted, but the radar looked good once 7 rolled around.  We were fine; however, a storm is rumbling as I type this.

7/16 & 7/17:  0.

7/18 - Friday:  4 at Kilburn w/team.

7/19 - Saturday:  0.  Sore throat + feeling lazy.

7/20 - Sunday:  6.  I ran Kilburn Town Forest, Ridge, Kilburn.  Good run.  I love coming out on the backside of Baker Pond.  Throat is still quite sore (allergies?).  Pretty weak week.

Weekly Total:  14

Summer Week 4

7/7 - Monday:  4 in the evening Monument Rd out and back.  Humid run, but the afternoon thunderstorms had cooled things down a little.  I got bitten on the eyelid by some unidentified insect.  My eyelid is a little swollen tonight; we'll see how it looks tomorrow.  Maybe I can scare my students at summer school - which started today.

7/8 - Tuesday:  3 after dinner Charles Street Loop.  Dinner sat a little heavy, my back was a wee tight, and my eye is still swollen from yesterday.  In other words, I felt decent!  Good run.

7/9 - Wednesday:  4 after putting the babies to bed, Oxbow out and back.  I started out really slowly on this run.  I loosened up and hammered after the turn around.  Pretty tight still - still need to lift!

7/10 - Thursday:  0.  Beautiful night to run, but I decided to just bang out some pushups and save the legs for tomorrow's trail run at Kilburn.

7/11 - Friday:  6 up to Pisgah Ridge w/captains.  Nice morning for a run.  We saw Greg across the pond.  My athletes were impressed with our loon call communication.

7/12 - Saturday:  6 at Kilburn at dusk.  Nice evening for a run.  I thought I was destined for a zero today after a day of gluttony at Kimbell Farms in Jaffrey with the family, but I rallied.  Felt good to get out there despite the acid reflux from the lobster roll and ice cream.

7/13 - Sunday:  0.  Busy day.

Weekly Total - 23
