Run Efficient: Turkey week 11/21 - 11/27

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Turkey week 11/21 - 11/27

Monday - Prout's Neck.  10 miles.  Ran with Todd and Eddie while they were on roller blades from Camp Ketcha to Prout's Neck. They then donned shoes and we all did the ocean loop then ran along Scarborough Beach. At that point I took off and ran back home on the road and they continued back to switch to roller blades again.  Fun run with a bit quicker pace at the start trying to keep up a bit with the wheels.

Wednesday - Stroudwater.  6 miles.  Rainy, snowy, slushy, muddy, wet, windy and cold run. Just awesome! Stroudwater was about two inches covered in snow and slush and the extension along the power lines was 50% mud puddles to continually soak the feet. Took it nice and easy and still manged to slip a bit on the bridges. Fun, fun winter run!

Friday - Bradbury West.  8 miles.  Hit the Brad with Alison, Louie, and Francesca for a wonderful post t-day run. The trails were snow, slushy and nice and muddy with a bunch of people and their pooches out stretching their legs. I ran a few random backwards and forwards loops to get in 6 summits, 3 of which up and down the summit trail. Great fun with Francesca joining me for the final ascent and descent.

Saturday - Scarborough Downs Loop.  6 miles.  Nice and easy loop. Didn't push it even though I felt good and really wanted to get back to T-day leftovers and pie.

Sunday - Kennebunk.  15.4 miles.  Planned on 10 but Mindy and Tim were heading to the Bunk and I really wanted to check the area out and have some company.  Real fun, chill run on the new-to-me trails.   We hit a 7+ mile loop twice with a few offshoots checking out some other trails.  Great area with nice undulating trails that meander switchback style through gorgeous woods.

We had a fantastic time chatting about the usual upcoming races, past events and future workouts.  It was good to catch up with Mindy as the last time I'd run with her was her 40 for 40.  It's especially fun talking and planning about a race coming up that we both have in common.  Tim had some interesting stories about some of his world travels and his future running endeavors as well.

The run began relatively warm with overcast skies and by mid-run it began to get cool with a heavier feel to the atmosphere.  It felt a bit strange as if this ominous, oceanic wave had rolled in to the area.  We joked that it seemed Jamie Anderson and Stephen King must be conspiring together for their next novel about the Kennebunk Killa's.

Summary - 45+ miles.  Actually intended to step back this week in mileage with T-day and all but since last week was fewer miles than anticipated I just flip-flopped rest weeks.

That would be a good setting for something odd to happen. Seeing as we often get lost there, perhaps there are supernatural conspirators at work.... spinning us around and around and draining our souls in the process... I like it.

That's pretty much what we figured Jamie.
