Run warm up/down 5:45 [1] 0.7 mi (8:13 / mi) +20m 7:33 / mi

Run down the hill, then back via a port o john. Cool morning. Nice.

Trail Run 4:59:34 [1] 29.0 mi (10:20 / mi) +1362m 9:01 / mi

Pisgar. Was slated to be a warm day, but dry. I've never had issues with that before. But it was cool at the start. Saw Amy and Brian, Jesse and then went to the start and go. First five miles flew by as usual. I was running with a pack of 8, but off the back, and couldn't keep up on the hills, plus, I wanted the distance, mostly, going fast was secondary. Went off in to the woods to avoid a bees nest approaching the first manned aid, then hands on knees up that hill.

The course is always nice, and mostly cool in the trees. Stopped to pee, tackled the ridge, and was on pace for a PR. But then it was warm. I ran down the Kilburn Loop fine, but when I turned to come up I realized I was overheating. I should have dumped more water on myself at the aid station (no ice there, apparently they don't have ice if the temperature isn't over 80, which seems like a high threshold) so I basically walked the whole hill up. Then at the aid again I dumped a lot of water on myself (I should have jumped in the lake on the way out) and was like a new person, running up the hill, passing someone, and holding off to the finish. But barely just enough water to keep from cooling down. (It also helped that they had cheez-its at the aid station and I had several handfuls and ran off with a handful. Not a bad way to get salt!)

Finished with a personal worst. But finished and didn't overheat, and got my miles in, and legs don't feel too bad.

Rollerski 2:12:37 [1] 20.2 mi (6:34 / mi) +421m 6:10 / mi

Littleton. Classic focused on Double Pole. There were videos sent out about double pole technique, and 2006-era full body double poling (was it that recent?). Fine by me, still on skis with a bad ratchet.

Out with the big group, then a small group on the long loop (mostly to avoid the long chip seal downhill). But now Harvard chip-sealed another part of the downhill. Good lord. I really should write to the state and demand that state funds not be used for chip seal.

Wasn't too bad. Frank took us around Coventry Wood and when they went to do Neighborhoods I struck back on my own. I do have a 50k tomorrow.

Barometric thing on new watch is pretty useless, for this at least. Great. But Strava can correct.

Run 40:45 [1] 5.2 mi (7:50 / mi) +27m 7:43 / mi

Ran the same loop as yesterday, the other way around. Beautiful evening of running and watching traffic jams. The BU Bridge was crushed beyond imagination (concert at Fenway, which is apparently worse than ballgame). Ran the river doing 30 30s, because why not push two days before a 50k. Oh, wait.

I saw a bus coming down Pearl Street as I was running home. I tracked this bus as it tried to get through the rotary. It took it 55 minutes to go 0.7 miles. The passengers could have gotten off, walked to the other side of the river, and gotten on three buses before. What a junkshow.

Run 42:07 [1] 5.3 mi (7:57 / mi) +27m 7:49 / mi

Loop along the river. Uneventful, stretching the tired legs mostly, saw sister walking to the T at the end!

Run 22:08 [4] 1.5 mi (14:45 / mi) +533m 7:01 / mi

So this was a new NP workout. And a hard NP workout.

In the past we've partnered and done groups of five stairs. Which is like running 800s with lots of rest, and running them hard but not all out.

This is like 400s, minimal rest, and going all out. Wish I'd had a HRM for this. Took the time from Strava moving time, which probably accounts for some hands-on-knees recovery still in L3 or L4.

My partner and I made it around in 18 minutes and back in 21. 18 still being slower than Tom Stark can run it on his own. I got the extra sections at the start and end. It was hard.

That's two hard workouts in two days, so maybe I'll taper a bit for Sunday.
