Summer 2015, week 8

8/10 - Monday:  4 miles on the HRT.  My back was a little tight in the early stages of this run.  It loosened up as I went along.  Nice negative split on this run.  17:45 first half, 15:20 second half.  Happy Anniversary Honey - 5 years!  We are heading to Boston on Friday night to celebrate.

pm:  Greg and I were able to get the canoe up to our secret spot for an encounter with some lunkers.  I got a really nice one in the 5 to 6 pound range after sunset.  Greg also landed a 5 pounder.  Good night!

Please forgive the photo of a photo.

All these fish we've been catching have been long and solid, but not hogs.  We'll have to make it a priority to get up there this fall when they stock up a little, and back in the spring when they are spawning.  We're quite addicted!

8/11 - Tuesday:  0.  Hung out with the family.  We went to the Southern Vermont Nature Museum on Hogback Mtn.  What a difference a year makes!  The kids loved it.

8/12 - Wednesday:  0.  We went to Spofford Lake with the kids for a swim.  Then I watched them all afternoon.  Too lazy to run in the evening.  I'm losing fitness!

8/13 - Thursday:  4 at Kilburn.  Gina dropped the kids off at daycare, so I went running.  I planned on going farther, but the reality of how out of shape I'm in hit me.  Yowzers.

Summer 2015, Week 7

8/3 - Monday:  0.  Went to Misquamicut Beach then drove home.

8/4 - Tuesday:  3.  I ran to my fishing spot and back.  Decent fishing - 6 bass and a pickerel.  Nothing big.

8/5 - Wednesday:  6 - Oxbow, Monument, Plain.  I ran at 2pm and suffered.  The weather was cool for summer - 80 degrees, but the open roads and sun exposure got to me.  I definitely was feeling dehydrated at the end of this one.

8/6 - Thursday:  3. Happy Birthday Jonny!  I ran up to the fishing hole today and back.  I caught 5 bass and a pickerel.  My fish were all bigger than Tuesday's fish.  I managed to land a 3 pounder.  I lost about 17 dollars in lures too.

8/7 - 8/9:  Had fun, but I didn't get any runs in.  I turned 38 on Sunday.  Happy Birthday to Greg!

Weakly total:  12
