Monday: 0Calves feeling tight after two good runs past weekend.
6 miles. Stonington Fun Runs: final fun run of the year. L Solo warm-up, then ran the 2-loop course and the cool-down with Mike B and Glen C. 6:31 pace
7 miles in the morning. Saw the kids off to their first day of school, then got out the trail shoes and headed out for some 'xploring. Parked at Wahaneeta, ran through there and Woody Hill. Great fun. Once I've got my bearings down better, I'm going to plan to incorporate this as part of future group run.

6 miles in the evening at Schonning 5K. Fantastic race! See separate write-up.
4+ miles in early evening. Shore => Maplewood => 1 mile on beach east => Montauk Ave, and home. Woman on beach whistled at me! Or was she jeering?
8+ easy Misquamicut beach loop. Stopped at new Weekapaug bridge, and learned that in 1880, there was a toll wooden bridge across the breachway upstream, primarily used for hauling of seaweed! Cool!
Next 2+ miles on beach; hard going against the wind and in soft sand at higher tide.
Being the last day of August, started to look out for fall races. See 2012 tab. Good news: no problem at all finding races I want to run; bad news: I filled up every single weekend until Thanksgiving! Some of those "tentatives" will have to go; don't think I want to be racing every single weekend; doubt my family does either.
17+ miles with Jonny. Narragansett Trail from Green Fall Pond parking lot in Voluntown, CT, west to Wyassup Lake in North Stonington and back.
|Not what I'd call a flat run!|

Jonny's head gives perspective

water is really low
4 miles. Led Matthew and his cross country teammate through Champlin trails.
5 mile morning run with Tom. 1 mile on beach, the rest local Misquamicut roads. Good to see Tom out running again!
