Rollerski 52:39 [1] 10.02 mi (5:15 / mi) +67m 5:09 / mi
ahr:123 max:218

Got out for my rollerski way later than planned. Turned around at 5 mi or 30m, whichever came first (5 mi did). On the esker, DP out, skate back; focusing on good soccer kicks skating and it seemed to help me go fast to beat sunset, all sub-5s coming back.

Super hazy from the smoke but that's up high; AQI of 5 or something.

Felt good, need to do better on timing to get more rolling in. Basically no traffic, though.

Run 1:12:50 [1] 9.15 mi (7:58 / mi) +246m 7:21 / mi
ahr:150 max:196

Angsty run, finishing at the farm for veggies, then running down the hill with a bag of veggies to slow my pace.

Not a bad day for running.

Trail Run 43:12 [1] 1.34 mi (32:14 / mi) +179m 22:47 / mi
ahr:123 max:203

Hiking up to see Jess. She was coming down on her FKT attempt and I thought was well behind time, and we went nearly aa mile up, slowly, looking for her.

But then a blur of Jess came by and I started running after her and then realized there was no need to try to break my ankles, too, so walked the rest of the way down.

She made it in 4:48 … 10m better than the previous FKT.

Which is insane.

Hiking 30:00 [1] 3.62 mi (8:17 / mi) +109m 7:35 / mi
ahr:111 max:195

Out for an afternoon walk. Some uphill, some jogging. Trails near Gorham with not much traffic.

Saying 30m?

Trail Run 8:22:56 [1] 17.61 mi (28:34 / mi) +2250m 20:27 / mi
ahr:139 max:213

Made a new friend recently and will report more if things keep going well but she suggested a Wildcat-Carter-Moriah traverse and it's hard for me to say no to that.

Met in Gorham, spotted car up at Pinkham (so busy!) and then up Wildcat. Which is … steep. 1600'/mile, about the steepest in the Whites. That was slow and steep, but I had a good influence to keep me from going too fast and drinking too much water. Easier over the top, ran along with a thru-hiker for a while (seemed like a lifer thru-hiker, which are an odd breed) and then down to get water at Carter Lake, since Cata is closed. Except right before the lake I saw a nice little stream of cold water which seemed better than lake water and we filtered a ton and I drank a ton and I was very well hydrated: this was good! It was also the only water on the trail.

So, then, up Carter Dome which is also hard and some of us were lagging but have other good qualities but we had plenty of time for a 5:30 reservation at Saalt/Libby's which was a motivating factor. The last few pitches were warm and sunny but it was a perfect day out, and we finally got to stretch our legs out on the last bit down to Gorham. Mile for mile this is not much easier than the Presi.

We made it down and were sipping beer and eating our appetizers 15 minutes later at the best outdoor garden eating I've seen.

Run 1:11:36 [1] 8.26 mi (8:40 / mi) +207m 8:02 / mi
ahr:166 max:213

In Boston, Friday morning. Went for a run to Summit. Was too late to see some NP people who apparently have been socially-distanced gathering there, but ran over the hill a few times like the old days.

Wednesday Sep 9 #

3 PM

Run 41:17 [1] 4.91 mi (8:24 / mi) +81m 8:00 / mi
ahr:132 max:172

Run around JP, down to Franklin Park and around the newly-paved Circuit Trail.

I may have to go take a rollerski there some time! Nice mile out-and-back, and with the paths you could make a 2ish mile loop. Hills, but gentle ones.

Not a bad run. Muggy but cloudy enough not to be blazing hot. And not too crowded so only so much buff time. Getting ready for ski season kind of.
