Monday - 0 milesWe had a lunch gathering for a departing colleague so no yoga or running today. I did about 8:30 of planks in the morning but it was tough work.
Tuesday - East Providence, RI - 4.4 milesI upped my efforts this week to 80% so that's 1 minute of walking and then 4 minutes of running. Leg felt fine throughout but I felt out of shape. That's normal I suppose. Beautiful day along the bike path. Finally feels like spring!
Wednesday - Seekonk, MA - 4 milesSpring shming. Now it feels like summer! I went over to Wheeler School in Seekonk and ran up to the Caratunk Preserve. I had to bushwack through some briers to get there but it was worth it. Between the heat, hills and lack of running I was worn out by the end. Still 80% running so every fifth minute was a walking rest. Which I didn't mind at all.
Thursday - Providence, RI - 3.3 milesAnother hot day and I felt gross and fat. Running was tough today. Felt very out of shape. I intentionally kept this one short though I did make an effort on a short hill segment that I recently lost. I'm pretty sure the guy was aided but a very generous GPS route so it's unlikely I'll ever be able to take it back but thems the breaks. Overall a tiring run but no pain afterwards and that's the important thing.
Friday - 0 milesNo running today. I wanted to take it easy and do lunch yoga instead. Ended up being a great session so I'm really glad I went.
Saturday - 0 miles
I didn't get a run in but I DID get actual yardwork done. Mowing the yard took a while and I even managed to rake/weed the vegetable garden. I don't do actual work often and it showed - I fell asleep on the couch at 8 PM.
Sunday - Charlestown, RI - 5.6 miles
The dog needed a walk and I wanted to run longer in the woods so we compromised and I took him to Carter Preserve. This was still 80% running. We did a big loop hitting up the new brush fields and the train tracks as well as the usual woodland trails. Poor beast was dragging ass by the end. I nearly killed the dog but it was a good run otherwise.
Weekly Mileage: 17.2 miles
Year to Date: 151.5 miles
Not a lot of miles but the leg felt good and that's the important thing. Next week I believe I will chance an actual run!
