Weekly Log 1-Aug to 7-Aug-2016: Double Race Weekend

Two races this weekend, which means I'll be two more races behind in blog writing.  Am actually keeping up pretty well on weekly posts lately, just need to finish up (which falsely implies they're in the works) two race reports from July:  Blessing and Vesturgatan.

5 miles.  Narragansett Pier, barefoot in the sand, while waiting to watch Matthew's Lifeguard Games competition.

12 miles.
AM:  7 mile workout at Hell Field with Tommy, Jonny, and Matthew.  3 sets of (600, 400, 200), before a cool-down and dip in the ocean at Fenway Beach.
PM:  Stonington Fun Runs.  6:30 average pace with Jeff Vuono.
19 miles.  To and from Stonington Fun Run.

8 miles.
AM:  5 miles easy road run in the fog in Needham, MA.
PM:  3 miles.  Westerly Fun Runs.  Easy 6:30 average pace.  Three surprise highlights were 1) the 3rd place kids' finisher is from Austria and I got to speak a little German with him and his mother, 2) young Tyler Faubert (incoming freshman at WHS) cranking AC/DC on the run, and 3) a visiting runner from Litchfield Running Club (Mike Main) that was very complimentary of our Fun Run.

15 miles.  Brick with Matthew.  Watch Hill --> Misquamicut --> Weekapaug.
3 miles.  From Weekapaug Breachway, out-and-back barefoot run on the beach, before bike return home.

3 miles.  Easy shakeout on local roads.

1/4 mile.  Block Island Triathlon!  Write-up forthcoming.
13 miles.
6 miles.

8 miles.  Run 4 Kerri.  Write-up forthcoming.

Weekly Totals:
0.3 miles.   

49 miles.
44 miles. 

Weekly Synopsis:

As much as I dislike the heat, the summer is going by much too quickly.  Had a pretty good mix this week, and a fun time on Block Island as always.  Next up is the super-competitive Bobby Doyle USATF 5-Mile New England Championships on Sunday (August 14).
