Monday - 0 milesDespite the Labor Day holiday I didn't run. Felt lazy about it but we spent a fun day in Newport and walked around a wildlife sanctuary so I wasn't a complete schlub.
Tuesday- Charlestown/Narragansett, RI - 12.2 miles220 push-ups (standard/diamond) 40/25/45/40/25/45
I did four miles in the morning as I knew the forecast was for a brutally hot day. I had planned to do four more at lunch but Amanda suggested I wait until after work to run. Good idea. I drove south to Narragansett. By the time I got there the temp was much more reasonable. I did a mix of surfaces. I parked at the elementary school, ran the length of the beach and then following the ocean wall into nearby neighborhoods. I found a trail network I had never known about and continued along it until it plopped me out over on Kinney Ave. Whoops - a little farther than I had planned but I didn't mind making it 8 sweaty miles.
Wednesday - East Providence, RI - 5.2 milesAnother really hot one. I went out to the East Bay bike path and did five. The wind coming off the bay made going out slow but it was still a relief from the temp. I stopped at the midway point and enjoyed the ocean vista before heading back (aided by the wind).
Thursday - East Providence, RI - 11 miles210 push-ups (standard/military/wide) 35/30/35/40/30/40
I left the house early intent on a trail run but the forecast was nasty with big thunderstorms moving in. I opted to drive up to Providence where it looked like I'd be able to avoid 'em. Did a big loop over to the East Side, up through Pawtucket and then back down to East Providence. Explored a dirty trail just past a cemetary and some side roads to expand this normally 8 mile loop to 11 miles. Good run and the weather ended up cooperating. Humid as hell - probably would have been better if it had rained.
