Weekly Log 19-Jan to 25-Jan-2015

12 miles.  MLK group run of 8.  After running out to Watch Hill on roads and back the via, most bid their adieu while Jonny, Matthew, and I continued on a romp through Champlin trails.

Very cool pic along the ocean in Misquamicut.  Photo by Shara.

5 miles.  Solo run from Wahaneeta up into Woody Hill, around the pond and back. Stumbled across some new cut single-track off the main "road".

6 miles.  Cold run through Avondale at sunrise.
850 yards.  Lunchtime swim before meeting up with WLT prez to get my latest assignment:  pen a written history of Avondale and the preserve.  I'm up for it and like this kind of research, but just need to take some time to fit it in.

10 miles.  Morning.  Needham, MA.  Track workout with 5 x 1K.
5 miles.  Late afternoon.  Foxboro, MA.  Returning home from a day working in Wellesley with time to kill before a 7:30 indoor track meet (Matthew's) in Providence, I decided to check out Chris' recent run in F Gilbert Hills State Park:
Started off on double-track

Frozen Sunset Lake

Of course the 50-year old kid had to stop and climb this rock

was running from the rock I just climbed

Friday: 0
Impromptu rest day.  Tired after travels and long day yesterday (left home at 4:30am, returned at 10:30pm).

16 miles.  This early morning run with Muddy had it all:  snow, rain, ice, slush, puddles, and mud.  YMCA to Barn, Barn trails, and return.  Any intention of running MP for any part of the run quickly evaporated due to slick conditions on snow covered trails and roads.  Snow/rain mix start had turned to a soaking rain by finish, and after 2+ hours out there, I was chilled to the bone.  Muddy found the fortitude to continue on the treadmill for a few more while I headed to the sauna to warm up.

5 miles.  Watch Hill very windy run with Matthew.
4 miles.  Plotting 2015 potential Pumpkins course in Woody Hill

Weekly mileage totals:
1x, 0.5 miles
63 miles!  Biggest week for me since September.  Of course 63 miles doesn't even get you on the top-3 Strava leaderboard with mileage monsters Muddy, Jonny, and Joe Strafach.
