Weekly Log 22-Oct to 28-Oct-2012

Monday:  0
Needed rest day

Tuesday:  7 miles
Local Misquamicut roads.  Warmed up for 10 minutes, then threw in some speedwork in the form of 2 x 1-mile, with 90 seconds recovery.  Ran 5:29 and 5:40.  Disappointed with how winded and exhausted I was.  Jogged back on the beach and home.

Wednesday:  13 miles
Newly blazed "white trail"
in Wahaneeta Preserve
Opted to get my longer trail run in mid-week instead of the day before a 5k, like I did last weekend.  10 miles on trails in Woody Hill Mgmt Area and Wahaneeta Preserve, the rest on surrounding roads.  The double track in Woody Hill was still gravelly, but the single track was nicely padded with new fallen leaves.  Bonus in Wahaneeta - newly blazed trails!!  Looks like they're still under construction, as they led to an area where I ran out of blazes and ran out of trail, but excellent work and holds promise - e-mailed the land trust for more info.

Thursday:  4 miles
Early morning run in the dark; 48 degrees.  Tom Harvey loop.

Friday:  7 miles

445 club with Tom.  Ran from Tom's house through Weekapaug in the dark.  Highlights were running on Fenway Beach and past the newly opened Weekapaug Inn.  I felt we really pushed the pace today:  6:38 overall, with miles 2/3/4 6:20/6:11/6:23, and the final mile 6:29 uphill.

Saturday: 5
Easy pace; Westerly Hospital loop, finishing up on Mastuxet trails.

Sunday:  8
Charlestown FOP 5K race.  See separate write-up.
Weekly totals:  44 miles

Next week:  running in Maine early in the week, then Tarzan Brown in Mystic on weekend.
