  • tue: Cooldown. Walked for 10 minutes .
  • tue: Sherwood Forest Loop. Ran 2.8 miles for 26 minutes at 9:30 pace. Below the pain. I rode that line between significant effort and a 5K pace pain. I went out without the GPS watch to try to regulate my pace by perceived effort. This is a very hilly course and it forces me to deal with the hills without taking my HR too high.
  • wed: Pillings Pond Run. Ran 5.2 miles for 56 minutes at 10:41 pace. Another hot run. I took it slow and zoned out to an audio book I am enjoying.
  • thu: Sherwood Forest Loop. Ran 2.8 miles for 27 minutes at 9:47 pace. Easy run in my Vibrams. My legs are a little tired today but I got into the swing of things eventually.
  • sat: Lynnfield 8 mile loop. Ran 8.0 miles for 82 minutes at 10:11 pace. Started at 5:00 am in the dark. Decided to go shirtless so that I could let the oppressive humid soupy “air” have as much skin access as possible. Thankfully the temperature was reasonable. My duel 22 oz water bottles really bounce a lot until they get to half full, which is really annoying.
  • sun: Basic activation of muscle groups. Lifted for 30 minutes . Not enough energy for more than that.
  • sun: Locksley-Essex out and back. Ran 4.2 miles for 47 minutes at 11:08 pace. Slow recovery jog. Hot and humid.
  • sun: Cool down. Walked for 10 minutes .
