Run - Trail race (Bolton XC #1) 19:54 [5] 3.7 km (5:23 / km)
shoes: Mindbender

First XC race of the summer. Skies opened up 10 minutes before start, got soaked, then sun came out... gorgeous double rainbow but steamy...

Legs felt ok, but chest really tight, almost painful so really backed off on 2nd lap. 6:25, 7:39, 5:49 (9:40 pace)

good crowd including Jim Henderson, John Agosto, Deb Livingston, Ken Forrest & Vicki Q.

Run - Road long (commute) 2:00:00 [3] 12.5 mi (9:36 / mi) +300m 8:56 / mi
rhr:46 slept:6.5 weight:161lbs shoes: Mindbender

Opted to run/walk to work rather than ride. Nice weather out, but a real slog. I estimated 2 hours before leaving the house and I was within 20 seconds of that figure if I don't count the walk from Dunkin Donuts to my office :-)

I've got a couple options for the return trip, none of which involve running home thankfully....

Run - Trail long (Birch Mtn) 1:22:00 [2] 11.4 km (7:12 / km) +255m 6:28 / km
rhr:49 slept:7.0 weight:165lbs shoes: Mindbender

Wandered over to Birch Mtn / Case Mtn. Started at Line St. I've run many of these trails before with others, but this is the first time I've run this part of the area solo and with a map in hand. As Swampfox would say - so fine....

Not particularly energetic, though it was warm and muggy which is not my kind of running weather. Passed a few mountain bikers, so it wasn't that bad. Spent a bit of time after the first hour doing some off-trail exploration in some spots that looked very promising from my crude basemap - it didn't disappoint...

This whole area needs to be mapped (I've known that since I ran on this part of the Gay City base back in '97), so I've decided to begin mapping it with no definite timeframe, but at least to make progress. The section covered by the old base is a pretty small part of the whole thing, but I've been collecting some GIS data from various sources, I've found some aerials where rock features are actually discernable and in playing around with what I've cobbled together, then overlaying some of them on the Dunlavey base - what I've got to work with is pretty damn good. Lots of field checking to be sure, but I think I can make a fine map without a traditional basemap being flown. The area I'm planning on working on is a bit over 10 square kilometers, but there's plenty more south of the powerlines.

I was actually out there about 1:35 or so, but apparently was paused quite often so the posted time is my garmin 'moving time'. I did spend a few minutes watching a big snapping turtle at the north end of Buckingham - opted not to wade through that section.
10 PM


due to a DMV snafu, it appears my car is sans valid registration.

Guess I'll be riding to work tomorrow.....

6 AM

rhr:49 slept:6.0 weight:163lbs

rhr up a tad, but also short on sleep past couple nights. Hopefully get to go running later, but Ellen and Anna are volunteering at the Tolland Sprint Triathlon this AM, so the mornings out...

Now that I'm feeling better again (not great, but much better), I'm floundering on restarting my training, haven't managed to get any good long runs in. I think the problem is that I don't have a 'goal' event to work towards. And since I'm not sure the endurance base I had over winter is going to rebuild anytime soon I'm reluctant to put a long one on the schedule at this time. So perhaps I'll aim for the US Classic Champs (17 weeks away) and start getting some terrain training in to get back in O shape instead. We'll see....

Wooster Mtn would have been nice, but doesn't look likely...
9 PM


nuthin... no free time today, though it wasn't a day where much got done either, apart from refereeing the boys arguments :-(

gotta go pick Anna up from an 8th grade end-of-school party at a friends shortly, and I'm quite sure the will to head out the door for a run will have left me - in fact I think its already gone...

Maybe I'll sneak over to Case Mtn in the AM...
