5mi. - had hopeful intentions of doubling today (Labor Day) but just didn't do it. Instead did a standard 5 mile A-town loop (7:17 pace) and that's it. Family time trumped running
10mi.- a fairly humid and somewhat warm "Kakenballz" loop through North Stonington. Ran it a little too aggressively I think as the conditions really got to me and I felt pretty fatigued near the end.
9mi - a somewhat aborted track workout. Was going to do a 3T, 2T, 1T workout but previous day must have worn me out. That with the very soupy conditions and I had to make an emergency pit stop after the 2T block and just never recovered. My legs were feeling it and I had nothing left (or at the beginning or during the middle for that matter).
5mi. - late afternoon garbage miles on a mix of roads and HLT trails. Felt ok.
0 - again. Just wasn't feeling it in the monsoon-like rain. Wimp.
10mi.- from home on roads down to Grills Sanctuary and back. Solid effort and I felt pretty good. Kept it all on the 'Shway side as I turned around at the Polly Coon Bridge and didn't traverse into Westerly.
7mi. - an easy but very enjoyable loop on roads around to Kenyon Crossroads Preserve trails and then back home on road stretch and a tiny bit of private (trespassing) trails across the street. Liked this one. Fantasy football draft in the evening (stupid league always drafts the Friday after the first game). Won it all last year ($$$$$) but boy does my team SUCK this year!!!
15mi. - SK trails (Duval and Browning) with Seth at 0630. Misty and overcast but decent conditions. Still enough to keep you damp and sweaty. Good run with good company. Wanted to run for 2:00-2:30 but ended it at 1:54ish. Tired quads.
TOTAL: 61 miles
YTD: still haven't bothered to catch up/tally/figure out yet.....slacker.
Certainly not the type of week to have if (possibly) running an upcoming trail marathon (MAYBE) but it is what it is (I hate that statement!). One double is nice but really need to have 2-3 per week for marathon fitness and should have bigger workouts and longer trail runs. Oh well.
