Run Efficient: Wacky weekly weather 1/2 - 1/8

Wacky weekly weather 1/2 - 1/8

Monday - Rest

Tuesday - Evergreen Cemetery, 8.1 miles.  Stupid cold run on the trails for the first 5 miles then a few loops through the cemetery. I wanted to hit all the trails I used to run on when I lived in the area and think I hit almost all. There are a few new links since last I was there and it's still a fun short run. The wind was blowing crazy for the final three making an easy run seem frigidly epic.

Wednesday - Back Cove, 8.57.  After a 2 mile warm up I hit a mile interval, followed by two miles, then another mile with a jog in between and a two mile cool down. Real cold again at the cove with biting winds, but not nearly as bad as yesterday. The intervals felt good with a bit of struggle heading in to the wind.

Thursday - Robinson Woods, 8.1.  Nice easy run to the ocean and back.

Friday - Blackstrap, 8.13. I wanted to do hills today so I headed to Blackstrap for some but-kicking. I didn't expect to get it so early on. About a mile in to the run right after the blue barrel on the top of the hill I hit the ice and went down hard on my hip, elbow and head. I slid a good 10 or so feet pushing up billowy snow as I slid cursing. After getting up and fervently brushing the snow off so It wouldn't melt making me too cold I walked a bit and decided to run it off.

I hit the hill repeats Jeff took me to in the Spring at the tree farm. In my head I did the math for how much time I'd have before sunset, how many repeats I could fit in in my eight mile run and how I could do it all safely. For whatever reason I had 10 repeats in my head with the incorrect math of a ten mile run instead of 8. No matter, by the time I got to 8 repeats and realized my mistake I opted for safety and headed back. It was real sketchy on the way back with dark woods and cautious footing.

Saturday - Winnick Woods, 7.89.  Really excited to have found a connector trail that leads to a road, then golf course then another road about a mile from the entrance to Robinson Woods. Hip hurt a bunch today on the run from the ice fall yesterday but it was manageable.

Sunday - Winnick Woods to the Sea, 20 miles.  Awesome run with Zak on a gorgeous relatively warm day compared to the beginning of the week.  We started at Winnick Woods hitting the outer loop then the connector to the golf course, a short jaunt down the road then on to Robinson Woods a few other trails and then Fort Williams.  On the way back we snaked a bit more through the golf course and did a couple extra loops here and there to get in as many diverse trails as possible and ensure the mileage.

Real fun running with Zak and connecting trails.  I was definitely a bit tuckered and sore today and the last bunch of miles was tough.

60.9 miles for the week.
