My first lawn mowing of the season. Luckily, the mower and weed whacker started right up. I also did a fair amount of weed pulling and pruning of some dead branches that didn't make it back in the spring. And then, off to my sister's for a fantastic Easter dinner.

After realizing that most of the women I compete against had stepped up their training, I decided that it was time that I started mine, so I incorporated some hill work into my run today. I planned on doing 6 repeats, but didn't think I would make it for all 6. I did make it. Yay for me!

Running (Trail) 45:00 [3] 4.5 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: Salomon

I brought Graham down to NC today so he could spend his Spring break with his dad. I also drove home late last night from NJ, so I've seen a good bit of I-95 over the past few days.

I had done some Googling before I left, and found Medoc Mountain State Park, which looked like a good place to get in a run on my way home. And it was! Other than the fact that there had been a prescribed burn there today, so some of the woods were still smoking and the air right at the beginning of the trail was a little hazy. It brought back memories of Lake Sebago.

I ran the Bear Swamp Trail, around the Summit Trail, and back. These were beautiful woods, with nice pine needle covered trails and a section along the river that was really scenic. The bit up to the "summit" was steep, but short. Evidently, Medoc Mountain isn't really a mountain, but rather a long ridge. Whatever it is, it was a nice place to stop.

Running 29:11 [3] 3.1 mi (9:25 / mi)

I ran the Hood Loop this morning with my friend, Carol, which probably explains the faster time. She runs about my same speed, but having someone there makes me run just a little harder.

It was a chilly morning. I walked out in shorts and a T-shirt and thought, "Holy crap, it's cold out here!" So, I turned around and put on more clothes. Yesterday morning, it was 60 degrees, and this morning it was 39.
