I'm probably going to skip Li'l Rhody this year. I think it's better if I don't throw in a hard trail effort in two weeks time. I'd rather continue to slowly get back into running so that I'm good shape for the South County 4th Season Trail Race Series.
Monday - Seekonk, MA - 3.2 miles42 pull-ups (standard/chin-up/close grip) 6/10/6/6/8/6
Warm day out there! I ventured over to the trails along the Turner Reservoir. A lot of the exposed roots had been spraypainted white which I thought was odd - then I realized that the Seekonk High School next door probably uses these trails for their cross country coarse. Felt good to be out there running and I made a short Strava segment from a loop that juts out into the lake. Knee felt okay but my quad was extremely sore for the rest of the day.
Tuesday - 0 milesP90X Chest, Shoulders & Triceps (60 minutes)
It's probably been six months since I last did a full P90X workout. I put in a good hard effort but I overdid it a bit as my triceps began to hurt by the end of the day.
During the day I both voted and gave blood - double threat guy!
Wednesday - East Providence, RI - 5.1 milesDOMS! My upper body is super sore all over. Guess I need to resume the P90X more often. And I definitely strained my triceps yesterday. Today I ran along the 10 Mile River bikepath. I kept the pace very easy and was constantly analyzing every little twitch and ache from my knee. Explored a few trailish areas of Slater Park before returning to the car. Overall a good run but my knee was achey that night.
Thursday - 0 miles47 pull-ups (standard/chin-up) 8/11/6/7/7/8
Friday - Charlestown, RI - 3 milesThe only activity today was an early morning dog jog. Hopefully I'll get in a 6-7 trail run this weekend.
Saturday - 0 miles
Sunday - 0 miles
Notions of a mid-day trail run vanished as a lazy Sunday took root.
