biking 1:50:21 [3] 29.5 mi (3:44 / mi)

Millers Falls/Wendell/Wyola loop. Hot and humid, didn't have the energy or the desire to push, used up all my willpower just getting out the door....

track 13:00 [2]


track 5:51 [5] 1.0 mi (5:51 / mi)

Not a good day. Warm, humid, felt tired, But mainly, didn't have my mind set on what I wanted to do. So I did an 800 (3:06), thinking I would do 4 or 5 of them, but it seemed too much work, so next came a 400 (84.2), well I could do a bunch of them, but this seemed too much work too, so next came another 400 (81.5), for some reason as hard as I could, at which point I had no interest in doing any more. And so I didn't. Probably just as good....

trail running 27:00 [3] 3.1 mi (8:43 / mi)

Once around the XC course in Forest Park in Springfield.

trail running 22:13 [5] 3.1 mi (7:10 / mi)
ahr:162 max:176

5K XC race in Forest Park. Felt surprisingly good. Had felt sluggish warming up, like it was one of those days my legs just weren't going to be there. Finshed the warmup soaking wet from the sweat, changed shirts, drank some water, and a couple minutes later the race started and the legs felt good. Who knows, maybe should do a decent warmup all the time. Time was 39 seconds faster than what I did on the course in early June.
Face from the past showed up, Roland Cormier, always a great runner but minimal O' skills. Beat him, only second time ever in a running race, other was the original version of Fred Pilon's M&M trail races at Mt. Tom, this one just a half marathon from where the trail crosses the Mass Pike to the top of Goat Peak. Roland was scared of heights, so he ran the whole Mt. Tom section in the woods, keeping a good 50 yards away from the big cliffs overlooking Easthampton, and then he missed the turn up to the Goat Peak tower. Only running race I ever won (field was all of 11 people).

trail running 5:00 [2]
