With the decision to enter the RI 6 Hour Ultra this weekend, this will be a very easy week. I'm so used to having to fit in a week of runs that it'll be weird to have so much free time.
Monday - 0 miles
Tuesday - 0 miles
Wednesday - East Providence, RI - 5 miles
I went out a lunch for an easy five along the East Bay bike path. My pace wasn't anything special but it felt like work and I spent the run dwelling on this weekend's race and feeling unprepared. My knees were twingy too. Just pre-race nerves but it was annoying.
Thursday - Cranston, RI - 4 miles
I felt like spicing it up so before work I picked a random spot in Cranston and attempted to explore some nearby powerlines/trails I saw on Google. I missed the road I was searching for and ended up parking elsewhere. Then I did an easy loop involving another stretch of powerline followed by a short exploration of a golf course. Pretty hilly area and people drive way too fast on backcountry roads. I may never step on that land again.
Friday - East Providence, RI - 4 miles
Before work, I went to the Ten Mile River Bike Path for one last easy run. Calves felt tight which wasn't reassuring but otherwise an uneventful run.
Saturday - 0 miles
Sunday - Warwick, RI - RI 6 Hour Ultra - 40.5 miles
4th overall. 40.5 miles over 5 hours and 43 minutes. Very excited about this run. Report forthcoming.
