9 AM

Hiking 56:00 [1] 2.7 mi (20:45 / mi) +9m 20:31 / mi
ahr:107 max:170

Hiking down the Reef Bay trail. Wound up with a big crew, so this was not a trail run, but it would have been. I had a backpack full of water, and snorkel gear, but apparently the snorkeling was not worth getting sandy and salty for. I also found a good map on the beach, but it was too late to make extra hikings. The beach was nice, though.
12 PM

Hiking 45:53 [1] 2.18 mi (21:03 / mi) +237m 15:44 / mi
ahr:142 max:169

We decided the known known of a shaded trail was a good idea, and went back up. Everyone trooped up pretty well and we had plenty of time to catch the open-air taxi back to the ferry.

Swim 36:10 [1] 0.21 mi (2:52:12 / mi)
ahr:148 max:210


I did this twice, but only found satellites once. This was sea turtles! The other one was coral reef. I have never been good at this but was able to get the breathing down. Very cool. Nice flotation in salt water with flippers. Got sunburned.

8 AM

Run 1:29:34 [1] 6.55 mi (13:40 / mi) +412m 11:26 / mi
ahr:141 max:193

So running was tough, because it was hot. Every day hot. 70s early, then 80s, but dewpoints in the 70s, so 90s. Not a running kind of place.

Alas, we still went to try to run, on a nearby trail. It was hilly! The trail was nice. We went to a beach and then back.

I drank a liter of water and got back dehydrated, chafing and sweaty.
3 PM

Paddling 49:28 [1] 1.86 mi (26:36 / mi)
ahr:70 max:106

The house had glass-bottomed kayaks (not much to see locally other than the sea turtle, which was cool) so we went across the bay. It was windy, and the paddling was very rough on what someone called a "divorce boat."

Which it was until I realized I could push my seat back a couple of feet and would no longer be right next to Mel trying to paddle and steer. Also the boats had long since lost their skegs so they had no means to go straight and were basically impossible to steer. But with us a few feet apart, at least I could try.

We also scoped out a big yacht that rents for $180,000 per week.

Run 25:40 [1] 3.04 mi (8:27 / mi) +26m 8:14 / mi

Tuesday May 11 #

10 AM

Trail Run 5:15:46 [1] 12.58 mi (25:06 / mi) +1036m 19:59 / mi
ahr:128 max:185

Mel's ankle was pretty swollen but we said "let's see how far up Passaconaway we can get."

Answer: all the way up, and then down via the Walden Trail, plus some running on the way down. Weather ranged from sunny to graupel showers. Trail was mostly dry.

6 PM

Trail Run 2:11:30 [1] 9.64 mi (13:38 / mi) +614m 11:23 / mi
ahr:150 max:190

Lazy day, eventual evening run on the Hall's Ledge-Hutmen's loop. Felt pretty good except for feeling a bit crampy up top. And taking the Orchard Trail when I didn't mean to. The run down the Hutmen's Trail was nicer without being covered in loose leaves.
