Weekly Log 29-Aug to 4-Sep-2016

Almost caught up on blog posts!  Of course, once I do catch up, it might be easier if I just get back to posting a quick blurb each day or every few days.  Let's see how that works out ...

Monday:  2
Lunchtime mowing of upper field on new WHS XC course.  Field grew up too much during the summer; will have to remember to cut at least 1-2 times mid-summer next year.  1 mile run to field; 1 mile run back.  Hope the WHS runners will appreciate this, but I already figure some will and won't.

Tuesday:  9
AM:  6 miles at 6AM at Duval with Matthew, on his last week of summer vacation from school.  Fun running on the trails, with a rare cool morning of 59 degrees at start at Quaker Cemetery parking lot.  Matthew suggested running this one and I was the one initially hesitant because it means leaving the house by 5:30am to try to get trails in and drive round-trip to SK before I had to get to work, but then when he suggested we leave at 5:15am so we're not rushed, how could I turn down such enthusiasm?
Tallies:  One bloody fall (mine), one nice dog, one scary dog, NO deerflies!

PM:  3 miles back at Bradford Preserve.  Wheel-measured course on my lunch break.

Wednesday:  6
Noanet Woodlands, Dover, MA.  So much better without the deerflies!  The runners and bikers are starting to return now.

Thursday:  0

Friday:  5
Bradford Preserve trails, incorporating both WHS XC course and Run for the Pumpkins 5K course.

Saturday:  5
Inaugural Wahaneeta 5k!  Separate write-up to follow.

Sunday:  16
Longest run in a long time.  A little humid, but not terrible.  Matthew, Mike, and I ran the first 10 miles together on Surftown course, and then Mike and I finished up.  Sore for the rest of the day.

Weekly mileage:  44

Weekly synopsis:  The new WHS XC course is near to completion. The new Wahaneeta 5K was successful from a nobody got lost perspective, if not successful in numbers, and will somebody please tell Mr Summer that it's time for him to move on, along with his heat and humidity?
