Run 32:51 [1] 3.6 mi (9:07 / mi) +128m 8:13 / mi

Must have gotten pretty dehydrated on Saturday, and it was hot and humid in the sun today. Thought about the lake, but didn't run much. Felt pretty lethargic. Also, not biking and then biking does weird things to your legs. New muscles!

Bicycle 2:02:27 [1] 32.7 mi (3:45 / mi) +678m 3:31 / mi

So, I should have been doing a long run this weekend. But two things got in the way.

1) It was hot and humid and I don't do so well in that.

2) Lincoln decided we should try to put three bicycles in his plane and fly to Bar Harbor and bike up Cadillac.

Ooh, let's do that!

VFR came in to BXM around noon, and we were flying by 1:30. Under an hour up to BHB, changed in the FBO, biked around the ramp a bit, and then off to Cadillac. Really moving for the first 10 miles, and felt pretty good halfway up the hill, but then as I was pouring sweat on to my top tube and I slowed down some. Super sweaty out, and the sea breeze only blew in very close to sea level.

A few minutes up top, then we zoomed down the hill and back to BHB: 1:10 up, 50 down. Loaded the bikes in, with only a bit of yelling at each other, and flew back to BXM. The fog was rolling in as we flew, with a bank moving towards BXM that we could see. IWI was our alternate, which would have been sort of okay, but we made it in to BXM with a few minutes to spare (as we were unloading, we went from VFR to LIFR in a couple of minutes). A foggy drive for burritos and pie!

Run 38:14 [1] 4.1 mi (9:20 / mi) +255m 7:49 / mi

New NP pattern today: down back hill, then around and up the grassy hill. One front hill to start. I was late and ran that, ran with my bag, then dropped it. Super-duper sweaty today, so that was relatively unfun. But I got feeling better, fartleked up the steep steps up to the grass, then ran through the football pad people. Good little intervals.

Run 26:15 [1] 3.2 mi (8:12 / mi)

Quick run to get peaches at Star Market. Tropical systems dragging in a ton of humid air, which is gross. Went for a run, felt pretty drecky, but then it started pouring. I thought I might get stuck in Boston, but the storm went just south, so no lightning on the bridge. Then off to buy pie dishes.

Run 40:52 [3] 2.0 mi (20:26 / mi) +709m 9:43 / mi

Fun times on the stairs with back to the future. Back 1 section until 19, then 2. Made it to the finish having done 13 extra sections, which is 50, which is enough. Ran fast down after each BTTF.

Run warm up/down 13:30 [1] 1.5 mi (9:00 / mi)

Track warm up at Harvard with CSU. Watch took forever to find satellites. First mile didn't happen (isn't on Strava).

Run warm up/down 3:25 [1] 0.2 mi (17:05 / mi)


Run 18:42 [1] 2.1 mi (8:54 / mi)


Run intervals 20:33 [4] 3.5 mi (5:52 / mi)

8-10-8-6-10-8-6, with pickups/surges from 300m left to 200m left. Fun, good workout. Lots of speedy CSUers out there, I was lagging a bit, but kept my splits below 6:00 which was pretty good for a 5k pace. Went faster on the second go-round, especially the last one. Hadn't felt great, but was feeling good later on.

Maybe one more week of track before I taper off before Chicago.
