Marathon Ambitions at Bear Brook.
Got mighty hot at the end (84F), and me cramping after "killer" Hall Mountain. So several stops to massage and also a stop at the beach for a dip. Otherwise quite pleasant. Kept my planned pace of between 10 and 11 min miles.
I went to Podunk parking so I could avoid the trails near the lower parking lot, so not very busy where I was running. Also I was able to run two loops each exactly a half marathon, and with almost no overlap. So I returned to the car for a quick "lunch stop" with refueling after the first half.
The park attendant had informed me that visitors need to make on-line reservations for crowd control, which I did not have. She let me in nevertheless, after I informed her about my running plan.
Glad I did it - now that I am sipping ice coffee with my legs up....
Cycling - Bianci Mt Bike 39:55  8.78 mi (4:33 / mi) +114m 4:22 / mi
A quicky around the Lee Hook loop (Wiswall to Lee) - was hoping for a longer ride but ran out of time to get to the farm shop for bread /egg and salad pick-up.
Swimming (Boogie Boarding) 30:00 
At Wallis Sands State Park w. Nancy after picknicking with a large portion of fried clams. The ocean was much warmer than expected, so managed to play in the water until exhausted. That cooled me down for the rest of the night. Fun!
Cycling - Bianci Mt Bike 22:42  4.43 mi (5:07 / mi) +64m 4:54 / mi
Biking to the Barrington Watershed Area for a trail run. Sunny, a bit humid but pleasant temperature.
Trail running 1:01:36  6.06 mi (10:10 / mi) +103m 9:39 / mi
shoes: Altra gray
It has been a while since I visited this area - now advertised as Barrington Watershed Area. In the last 2 years, all major trails have been well marked with direction signs. Nice! I pushed the tempo a bit. Some map reading slow-downs mostly due to a poor printout. I would not want to log it as Oing. I attached a sticky tape on my cap, but was not able to catch a single FDF! Disappointed! ....
Cycling - Bianci Mt Bike 25:00  5.0 mi (5:00 / mi) +50m 4:51 / mi
Then biking home via Snell Rd which is a hillier route on the return. GPS was not turned on for some reason - I keep it in my fanny pack as its arm band is busted beyond repair. A replacement that I orderd a month ago is on hold until about mid month with Amazon - most likely deemed an absolutely non-essential item.
Cycling - Bianci Mt Bike 8:38  1.91 mi (4:31 / mi)
Bike to Wiswall to get to the trail head.
Trail running 1:04:04  4.9 mi (13:04 / mi) +105m 12:16 / mi
shoes: Topo MT3
Littlejohn trails: Slow warm up; then some exploring (slow) to find additional connectors, then a bit of a pick up (mile 4) and some slow down towards the end. Light rain developing.
Cycling - Bianci Mt Bike 10:04  2.0 mi (5:02 / mi) +16m 4:55 / mi
Biking home, now in heavier rain. We need it - yard has turned into a desert.
