Road Running 3:29:10 [3] 26.22 mi (7:59 / mi) +687m 7:23 / mi
shoes: Altra, Escalante

My "Relax from A to Z" marathon trial.
I had figured out this loop a few months ago, and tried to invite some Six03 friends to run it with me, but it never happened. So this route was new to me.

My trial questions: Can I still run long distance on roads in a reasonable time? Should I sign up for the Manchester marathon to be held in two weeks?

My plan pretty much worked: My goal was 3:30 and I hit it exactly in spite of the many climbs - there were about 10 "heartbreaks". I concentrated throughout on engaging the core, relaxing my legs. I refrained from pushing too hard, but as always, less refraining in the last 5 miles, just continuing.. My rt groin is now a bit sore, so are the bottoms of my feet, but the rest is totally fine. I did not feel crushed.
I'll see in three days if this was a success or a flop...

I carried ~ 30oz of fluids: 2 times 6oz : semi-concentrated espresso gel and Perpetuem; pus 18 oz water. I had a rich breakfast and was well hydrated. Took 2 salt tablets at miles 2 and 16? . Also had 2 Kind bars but never felt hungry enough to touch them. Temps from 45 - 49 F.

A few stops off the clock (pit, rearranging my two water belts, photo, salt tablet, and map reading - I did not want to have to run extra miles due to missing a turn. ) . All drinking was on the clock.

Oh, and the scenery was gorgeous - the late colors of fall still vibrant. About 22 miles were on nicely deserted roads .

Trail running 1:01:52 [3] 6.0 mi (10:19 / mi) +73m 9:56 / mi
shoes: Topo (black)

To Powderhouse Major, got lost a little bit (no map, of course!), and then back just a bit over my planned 1 hour.
Me and the grackles and the barred owl -
otherwise it was quiet - no humanoids encountered.

Trail running 37:15 [3] 4.01 mi (9:17 / mi) +67m 8:50 / mi
shoes: On Cloud light gray

A "shorty" after 4 hours of ZOOM meetings.
Good enough as I feel a bit funky after yesterdays shingles vacc.

Managed to "draw" the profile of a galloping centaur (with a bit of imagination...)

Trail running 1:11:09 [3] 7.65 mi (9:18 / mi) +93m 8:58 / mi
shoes: Topo MT3

The CW-W Foss Farm long loop.
Busiest evening ever with numerous elderly couples with dog(s), and also many youngsters in CW, and flocks of migrating birds. Everybody is on the move.

Trail running 52:29 [3] 6.01 mi (8:44 / mi) +61m 8:28 / mi
shoes: Altra gray (Torin 4)

Mid morning work break gave me the chance to go out for a relaxing run. Gray day, but moderate temps. 1.2 miles on pavement. Good to visit the Thompson loop.
6 PM

Road Running 38:33 [3] 5.2 mi (7:25 / mi) +70m 7:07 / mi
shoes: Altra, Escalante

Dover Pub Run. Nice warm evening so the outside of the Brickhouse was open for Taco night after the run.
The run was relaxed - not a hard workout. Fine with me.

Trail running 1:26:03 [3] 8.44 mi (10:12 / mi) +49m 10:01 / mi
shoes: Altra gray (Torin 4)

A little lost in E Foss - went straight on a defunct trail, missing the official trail blaze that was hung high on a tree - that's what you get when you stare at the ground. Then I became ambitious to figure our the official trails. And then dusk surprised me - definitely had to slow down, once the footing detail became invisible. But sill made it before 100% darkness set in. A reasonable mileage to start the week..
