Trail Run 52:38 [1] 4.8 mi (10:58 / mi) +184m 9:48 / mi

Headed home from NYC, only somewhat hungover. Hot, humid day, so I wanted to find some forest to run in Connecticut. I've heard of the Nipmuck Trail, so try that! No good maps so I had to try a couple of roads, the first one being what my dad would call a dumb road, before I found a little parking area on a dirt road.

Lovely trail, although I was not feeling great, sweating a lot! I was glad I had bought two bottles of Gatorade at the gas station. (I got overcharged: they advertised 2/$3 but charged me $3.25. Claimed it was tax. But not only are groceries untaxed in Connecticut, but if they were, this would be the wrong tax anyway! Then they said it was a combination of tax and deposit. But non-carbonated beverages do not have deposit in Connecticut. I got home and filed a complaint with the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection.)

Anyway, ran up some hills, down some hills, nice trail. But got super sweaty and the FDFs were out, so I was swatting them which was less fun. A couple landed on my back (I think I was so sweaty they could only get purchase on my shirt) and attempted to bite through the shirt. Luckily because the anesthetic doesn't work on shirts, I felt it before the fly bit, or something. Got to a road and ran to the car, where I wrung a lot of sweat out of my shirt.

Garmin borked the run pretty well. Really not impressed with this new watch.

Run 44:44 [1] 5.4 mi (8:17 / mi) +36m 8:07 / mi

Instead of fighting traffic to NYC for a wedding today, I saved some coin on a hotel and went on a run. Nice, cool evening, but humid, so lots of sweat.

Legs still feeling Wednesday!

Run 25:40 [1] 3.3 mi (7:47 / mi)

Off to Maine, but a quick spin around the block before I go. Then to Logan!

Paddling 19:04 [1] 1.0 mi (19:04 / mi)

Took the paddleboard out in Maine for a spin around the lake. Legs hurt from yesterday. Added some waterskiing to make them hurt more.

Run 45:13 [3] 2.5 mi (18:05 / mi) +850m 8:48 / mi

Good day at the stairs today. A bit hungry/jetlagged, but pushed through this. Warm but thankfully shady and on the shady side. Went through my not-cold water bottle, but had ice water at the end. Ran 50 in 37:30, which is not bad, and 60 in 45:00, which is also not bad, especially for being out of practice. Tomorrow might hurt. HR up the whole time, maybe the heat?
