Saturday Oct 8 #

Rollerski long 2:18:12 [1] 22.5 mi (6:09 / mi) +335m 5:52 / mi

Nice ski today. Small group, me Frank and a junior. Went pretty hard up the no poles hill (need to replace my tips) and then pretty easy the rest of the way. Horse farm hill sucks, I'll be using Borroughs right from now on. Then did a loop over Picnic back to Middle, and did the Depot extension. Nice skiing.

6 AM

Run 42:46 [3] 4.6 mi (9:18 / mi) +365m 7:28 / mi

Hills, stairs, more hills. Felt a bit sluggish in the legs because of NW the other night, I think, but pretty fast nonetheless. Not too fast on the downs because knees. Being old, man.

Wednesday Oct 5 #

6 AM

Run hills 37:00 [1] 1.5 mi (24:40 / mi) +509m 12:00 / mi

37:00 stadium? Well, they called it "backpack day" so I brought a backpack with a brick (and some laundry to fill it out). Probably 25#, so enough that I wasn't running the stairs but instead striding them. Just made a stadium before time was called.
3 PM

Bicycle 18:56 [1] 4.1 mi (4:37 / mi) +46m 4:28 / mi

Took the train out to Night Weasels, which is a four mile ride from the station. Almost got right hooked by a driver turning in to an apartment building, which they have in Westborough. Not a bad ride otherwise.

Bicycle warm up/down 22:30 [1] 2.8 mi (8:02 / mi) +45m 7:39 / mi

Night Weasels pre-ride! On a MTB because I don't have a cross bike. Makes it harder, especially when its dry and fast. Also, my bike only sort of works.

Bicycle race 35:34 [3] 5.2 mi (6:50 / mi) +90m 6:29 / mi

Cross is fun. Might be funner with the right equipment (cross bike, pedals with working clips, etc.). Will I throw money at that some day? Maybe! For now, go out, tool around, beat the fat guys, get lapped, drink beer. Think about throwing money at bikes.

Bicycle warm up/down 20:11 [1] 4.2 mi (4:48 / mi) +30m 4:42 / mi

Bike back to the train, including the up and down ramps at Westborough. Trains on time the whole way, why does everyone always B&M about the B&A?

Monday Oct 3 #

Rollerski 1:13:06 [1] 12.4 mi (5:54 / mi) +61m 5:48 / mi

Midday it had gotten sunny and maybe dry enough for a rollerski. After some problem setting (huzzah!) I went for an hour or a bit more. Up to the top of the "hill" which made for some decent V2 work, although it was a bit damp and slick so there was some DP and some careful stepping in places. No wonder trains slip on slick leaves ground up, dicey. Where it was dry it was fine.
