Cold and Wet
The past four runs since the last entry have been exactly the same, in a way, chilly and rainy. Beautiful may weather has blown into massachusetts.
Yesterday at lunch I did a relaxed Nobscott shakeout in 34 to try to get ready for the evening workout. Did not work. The track workout was 1 mile in 4:47 (4:40 target) and 9 x 400 in 3 sets of 3 at 64, 68, 64. Only it was more like 66,63,65,68, 67,67, 64, 63, 66. It was as ugly as it looks. I have was having a terrible feel for the track and had trouble finding an easy gait. I was just all over the place. I am hoping it is a little hang over from the thursday/friday effort last week. It should have been out of my legs. Oh well, you just take what you can get.
This morning I ran the 6 mile trail into work in 38:35 and took the 7 mile trail home 44:18. These are just guesses but the feel about that. I will need to run them many more times to know for sure. Both runs were in a steady fall-like rain. This morning's rain was chilling.
Poor Beckett is throwing for the sox tonight in what Remy described as a "driving mist." Umm, Remy, that is called rain.
That is all I have. Tomorrow I am going to try to open the pool by pumping the water off the cover and getting all the leaves out of it. This will be my first pool opening so the fingers are crossed that I don't destroy anything too expensive.
That's all I got.
