Walking 1:27:57  6.0 mi (14:40 / mi) +338ft 13:55 / mi
Mid-afternoon walk to Woods Pond and back--about all I wanted to do after
yesterday's run and hike.
Hiking 22:23  1.0 mi (22:23 / mi) +492ft 15:16 / mi
Since I had to pick up my car in Great Barrington around 4 p.m., I thought I should just get on the AT at the end of Kellogg Street in Sheffield. From there I hiked for a mile as a warm-up, but it wasn't the usual easy stroll; no, this had a couple of good climbs to it.
Trail Running 1:25:13  5.05 mi (16:52 / mi) +1152ft 13:53 / mi
Once done with the walk/hike, I planned to run for five miles, but I thought the easy section would be longer than it was. Instead, I then had a big climb up East Mountain, so much of that was hiked, not run, especially given my conditioning. Once at the top and near the end of the ridgeline, I reversed my route and did manage to run about 90% of the route back to my car.
The trails are pretty treacherous--lots of dried, slippery oak leaves over tons of rocks and roots. Really had to stay alert to stay vertical, and I did that. My quads will be sore tomorrow.
Hiking 3:22:18  8.25 mi (24:31 / mi) +1811ft 20:18 / mi
A hike along the Taconic Crest Trail, starting at Route 20 in Pittsfield and heading north for four miles before returning to the car. The trail was fairly dry and without much blowdown at all. This was a shakedown hike for Colette so that she could try out a new SPF shirt and some hiking shoes--they passed the test just fine.
Walking 1:17:27  5.1 mi (15:11 / mi) +285ft 14:25 / mi
Drove to Woods Pond to do an out and back on the dirt road to the east of the pond.
Today was the day that the Hell's Angels have their annual picnic/get together at their property on Woodlawn Road. So that means that the police are out in force watching them all as they come and go. I was a bit taken aback this year, though, to see an armoured vehicle parked near the substation on Woodland Road, along with four or five police cars and the Berkshire Law Enforcement Task Force vehicle, complete with some sophisticated communications equipment. I felt as though I had entered a war zone. LOL
Trail Running 58:26  5.1 mi (11:27 / mi) +679ft 10:10 / mi
Run in Kennedy Park, starting from the parking lot near the town's water cistern. No one on the trails, probably because I didn't start running until around 5 p.m.
Roads 49:25  5.11 mi (9:40 / mi) +138ft 9:26 / mi
An out and back along Alford Road in Great Barrington. Started and finished at Simon's Rock.
