Ran With Jim Johnson and Emery Bickford from Jim's house. Did a loop that went up and over Spicket Hill.....and it was a pretty good hill! The run got interesting when it started to thunder and lightning and the skies opened up. Overall it was a great run and the kick in the ass I really needed. It was great to get out there and run with some other guys and it got me excited to get back out there racing. Next time I will get a few of those town lines!
9/30 Friday: OFF
10/1 Saturday: 8 miles in 64 minutes
Was going to go over the Winnekenni to catch the USATFNE 25k trail Championships, but 7am came way too early. So I went over to Lowell to watch Heather race 5k at Jennifer's Run. I warmed up with Heather and then ran around the course to cheer on those racing. Heather ran well and got second place! I finished up cooling down with Heather, her sister Emily and the Fallon's. Got in a total of 8 miles......the foot felt pretty good. I will take it!
10/2 Sunday: 6 miles in 49 minutes
Very easy running with Heather. It was my first back to back day of running since taking time off. I felt really slow and heavy, but the foot felt alright.
Total Miles: 30.3
Not a bad week of running. The foot seems to be holding up OK. Its not 100% yet, but I feel like it is heading in that direction. I will keep bringing up the milage slowly, as long as the foot feels good.
