Billygoat. Decent run, ended up 14th, not so bad. Comments are on the split list, route at the usual place.

track 21:16 [5] 3.5 mi (6:05 / mi)
weight:135lbs shoes: Pegasus 10/05

At the track, 2 x 800, 2 x 1200, 2 x 800, with a 2 minute rest in between. Legs felt sluggish, after the first 800 I thought it was going to be a struggle to get through the workout. Which it was, but only a couple times did I think about cutting one short (some days that's all you can think about!). Splits: 3:04.8, 3:01.4, 4:35.8, 4:35.9, 3:02.7, 2:56.6.

On the other hand, I've had decent efforts for the last few days, so the legs shouldn't be fresh.

track 15:00 [2]

trail running 1:06:15 [3]
rhr:49 weight:135lbs shoes: Pegasus 10/05

On the Holyoke Range going east from the notch, over Rattlesnake Knob and to the end of the rollercoaster, and back (ran about 600 meters further east than the O' map goes). Upper 50s, a little bit of rain. Actually enjoyed it because I ran every bit of the hills, includng the climb up RN on the way back that I don't think I've ever run up. Not that I was going that fast....

Interesting how things (places, noises, smells,...) can bring back memories. Today's was at a spot on the rollercoaster, the eastern end of the run, narrow rocky trail that just keeps going up and down, where I was reminded of the time many years ago when I passed a guy here who was out for a hike wearing nothing but his boots. I think he was actually a few yards off the trail (maybe he was orienteering, he certainly was strange...), so it wasn't like I got really up close and personal when I passed him, and he said nothing, and I said nothing. And you ask yourself a little later, did I just see what I think I saw?

I do believe it was a nicer day.

road running 44:30 [3]
weight:134lbs shoes: Pegasus 10/05

Over to and up South Sugarloaf, and back. Very stiff starting out, but OK by the time I got to the hill. 14:57 over, 8:43 up, 6:34 down, 14:16 back.

trail running 51:59 [4]
weight:134lbs shoes: Pegasus 10/05

The perimeter trail at Northfield Mountain, up the south side 27:12, down the north side (24:47). Nice early evening run after 4 hours of O' practice.

Felt lousy at the start but then progressively better, just goes to show the value of warming up. Ran the last 30 minutes hard. About a minute faster than 2 months ago (3/11).
