Monday - East Providence, RI - 8.1 milesIt was a hot one out there but with the bastard Strava elevation challenge complete I was happy to head out on a flat run. I ran the East Bay bike path down into Barrington and the pace ended up being pretty peppy. I'll contribute that to finally having flat route to run. I found a little trail network right where I wanted to turn around. I'll have to explore it another time. Overall pace for the run was under 7 minutes which pleased me.
Tuesday - Providence, RI - 4 milesThis morning a screaming hellstorm came through, stealing our electricity but luckily not causing any destruction in our yard. Up at the office, it turned out East Providence was without power as well. Before heading back down south I got a short run over on the East Side, hitting the hills around hope street. Up and down, up and down. It was fairly hot and my legs weren't happy to return to hill work. Back at home there was still no power - a seemingly yearly occurrence that we are now well used to.
Wednesday - Providence, RI - 8.3 milesBusy day at work and I didn't get out until later in the afternoon. No time to drive anywhere so I just ventured over the bridge to Providence and ran aimlessly until it was time to turn back. Weather was finally reasonable and not too hot. Legs were feeling tired by the end. After a night without power we weren't looking forward to more of the same but luckily the lights came back on at 7 PM.
Thursday - North Kingstown, RI - 8.2 miles290 push-ups (standard/military/wide/decline) 45/30/40/30/45/30/40/30
Before band practice I ventured out for an afternoon run. Went through Rome Point first before touring the old stomping grounds. Some some family friends on their property and then ran past my childhood home. By now I'm at four miles and while I was hoping for about twelve my legs were feeling spent. I suppose from all the recent miles. I was intent on hitting up Snuff Mill Rd but there was no pep. I had already convinced myself to do ten but by the time I got to the top of the hill I was happy to cut it again to eight. No reason to kill myself and I was ready to get back to the band house and order some dinner.
