Monday - 0 milesLegs still sore from attempting Li'l Rhody Runaround yesterday so I took it easy today.
Tuesday - North Kingstown, RI - 5 milesT'was cold out there this morning! I did an easy five miles around Ryan Park. Five miles was enough which indicates that I'm still recovering from the RI 6 Hour.
Wednesday - Seekonk, MA - 6.3 milesWent out for a country roada loop in Seekonk at lunchtime. Not too cool but I still felt the need for gloves. Should've just left 'em behind and had chilled hands for a mile 'cause I ended up carrying them most of the way. Chris Fox past my on his bike and he turned back and kept me company for a few minutes while we chatted about Li'l Rhody. Hopefully we can meet up for some speed work in a few weeks when things settle down for me.
Thursday - Smithfield, RI - 5.5 milesBefore work I headed up to Wolf Hill for another easy trail run. Someone had been to work on half the trails with a leafblower. The other half had heavy leaf cover. An enjoyable fall run at one of my favorite RI spots.
Friday - 0 milesNo time for a run today. Which is fine as I'm planning on attending a group run tomorrow and I have the Mews race on Sunday.
Saturday - Stonington, CT - 6 milesJeff organized a group run in honor of Mike B who's been going through some tough times. It has been awhile since I ran with everyone and I do mean everyone - we had ten people! This was a fun easy run through the Barn Island trails. After six miles I said goodbye because I wanted to stay fresh for the Mews. We'll have to get back in the habit of more runs like this.
Sunday - Wakefield, RI - 7.4 milesMews Tavern 6.9k. Official time: 26:33. 22nd overall. Report forthcoming.
Weekly Mileage: 30.2 miles
Year to Date: 1,784.2 miles
Happy to get back to a more normal week of running after finally recovering from the effects of the ultra. The rest of the year will be packed with the holidays and a long business trip but hopefully I can keep the mileage up and hit 2000 for the year.
