Week of 13 November 2017 - 19 November 2017

Mon. 11/13:
6mi.  - (46:35) - raw and drizzly one squeezed in between a.m. and p.m. sessions of parent-teacher conferences. Long day.

Tue. 11/14:
7mi.  (53:09) - a slightly later start on yet another battleship gray day aborted an attempted easy trail run with Critchlery.  Instead I had to hustle around on local roads and trails in Kenyon Crossroads to beat the dark.

Wed. 11/15:
7mi.  (50:53) - a light "workout" on the back 9 holes at Richmond Country Club. It was fun pushing hard from each white tee box, down the fairways (path of best golf shots?), up to the pin on the green.  Very short recoveries along cart paths between each hole made it a little more aerobic than it seemed. Fun because it was something different.

I didn't even lose a single ball.....

Thu. 11/16:
5mi.  (45:29) - easy mix of roads and trails in Champlin Glacier Park. Pretty dark.  Great Horned Owl in along the path down to the salt pond.

Fri. 11/17:
4mi. (29:35) - easy short loop in/around Shannock before hangin’ with the boys for a few hours.

Sat. 11/18:
3mi. (22:51) - short and easy with 4 strides near the end. As ready as I’ll ever be for the race.

Sun. 11/19:
12+mi. - Race- Li’l Rhody Runaround. A tough day out there for me but about what I expected. Finished in 7th place OA in 50:35, a bit slower due to wet conditions but not at fitness level I want/need to be. Nobody to blame but myself. Still, a fun day overall in my first race as a “Master”

TOTAL:43+ miles
