Trail Running 5:30:00 [4] **** 21.0 mi (15:43 / mi)
shoes: Teva X-1 Evolution

Ran the Wapack from Greenfield trailhead to Sharon and back with RB, BB, SH, LR and TD. Lost RB early on when he slipped by Brook at the top of Pack- he went all the way to Watick where I picked him up after. The rest of us went to Sharon which by itself (just over 10 miles) was a solid effort and put a hurt on me! I walked many more of the hills back that I would like to admit- was also bonking. Was out of water so even though I had food I really couldn't eat much. Should have left water hidden in Sharon. Was as slow trudge back made more difficult when I lost Boca in the trail crowds (I have never seen so many people hiking there!) going back up Pack Monadnock. He got confused with all the people and turned back to find me. I finally found him almost halfway back down pack then had to go back up. That has never happened so a learning for me to keep a closer eye on him in the crowds. Just so glad he didn't go all the way home. We both slept very well last night. Calves are a little sore today, also quads but not too bad.

Trail Running 1:05:00 [3] *** 11.0 mi (5:55 / mi)
shoes: Teva X-1 Evolution

First run on the Greenfield trails without spikes. Yahoo! The Lovey Dovey trail is much more runnable since being cleaned up but oh so wet! Ran with RB and TD in a single long sleeve that proved almost too warm. Went to the Playground and Island Stream trails and back. Nice medium pace. RB moved the flotsamed bridge back into place. I have no idea how he does it. Brute. Voodoo Hill almost completely clear of snow and ice. Great run.

Trail Running 1:35:00 [2] ** 10.0 mi (9:30 / mi)

Wasn't feeling very motivated so did a longish (for midweek) run at a super easy pace on the trails by my house with TD (Boca-Trail Dog). very light misting rain and stepped around three fresh piles of moose droppings on the loop. They must be on the move in this warm weather! No sighting, alas. Just a couple tiny ice patches hanging on to the bitter end. A lovely quiet night in the woods.

Trail Running 1:10:00 [3] 7.5 mi (9:20 / mi)

Ran with Brandon at lunch. First time I have done the Lunch Loop this year. Some ice out there, mud and slushy snow, but mostly in pretty good shape. hard to complai this time of year. Fifth day in a row running so a wee bit tired. Will try to bike tomorrow?

Trail Running 50:00 [3] 5.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: Ice Spikes/Salomons

Did the loop, half by headlamp with RB and TD. A little more dirt every day. Getting there!

Porcupines are out and TD is in full spring fever, critter hunting mode. No needlenose pliers needed tonight thank goodness, but it was close.

For RB's birthday I worked on the connector trail he built last year out his backdoor. Cut thru two fallen trees (small ones), cut some small stumps, cleared the branches and cut out some small trees that were just in the way. It is pretty gosh darned runnable now!
