Ran from HC to EL and around WHP. Warm but not bad, felt OK despite being a bit tired/bad sleep.

Noon. Warm and sunny but not as oppressive as last week. Easy Schooner Head.

Ran in the Mushas to see how it went. Probably too long a run for a racing flat, but hopefully no harm no foul. Ran out to Sand Beach with 7 x 2:00 hard/2:00 easy after 1.5 miles. Ran one on the loose sand. Felt a little stressed, but last really tough workout before RtB.

WHP with Shannon. She kind of faded, so I picked it up for a bit at the end, then turned around and ran back, then walked in.

Early run, went to the Lab and did a short SH. Cool morning, creaky at first, got warmed up quickly.

Ran 6 x 1:00 hard, 1:00 recovery on the normal Schooner Head route. Felt OK, though my "fast" pace seems pretty much stuck right around 7:00/mile :-/

Had to double up RtB legs, so ran 8.5 instead of the scheduled 3.7. Started a bit slow on the dark trail but very pleased to be able to pick up and maintain a < 7:30 pace for most of the way. Ran 7:39, 7:15, 7:22, 7:16, 7:19, 7:43 (up the big windy hill on leg 13), 7:23, 7:27 and 7:32 pace for the last 1/2 mile, some of which was on rocky dirt. Final split was 1:03:07, 7:25 a mile, just off my 5k pace in July! Definitely helped that it was dark and cool out, much better than earlier inthe day.

Two RtB legs.

First was 4.4 to Bear Brook, ran pretty well, again my first mile was the slowest, as it took my legs quite a while to get moving. Final splits 7:34, 7:19, 7:09, 7:21, 6:49 pace to the finish, 31:55 time, 7:18 average.

Second was 4.0 to the beach, a flat scamper through much of Hampton. My legs were tired but maintained a steady pace on the pavement and concrete: 7:19, 7:22, 7:22 and probably 7:20ish through 3.7 or so before I hit the soft sand on the beach, which had me floundering. 4th mile was 8:24 total, so 30:27 for 7:37 average. Then the finish cluster. Yikes. But very pleased with how well I ran overall, much stronger than expected throughout the race.

3 very slow and sore miles after an easy 12 minute row. Definitely still feel the weekend miles. Recovery is so slow when you get old!

Slow Schooner Head. Legs still feel really trashed and achy. I ran hard for RtB, but this is getting a little ridiculous.

Rowed :12 moderate, ran 2 progressive on mill after. Hip acted up after being fine for a long time :-/ Something about the mill at < 8:30 pace that it really doesn't like.

Was one mile into a nice run and my calf went boom. A slow walk back to the car :-/
