Trails 46:15  4.05 mi (11:25 / mi) +477ft 10:16 / mi
Another failed attempt to get acclimated to the heat--the woods in Kennedy Park were cool and the humidity was very low--a perfect day for running though.
This will be my last run before Manitou's Revenge, where my relay leg of 15 miles, take place on Saturday. I'm hoping to get out on another section of the 56-mile course later in the day, with perhaps some night running included.
Dirt Roads 39:50  4.0 mi (9:58 / mi) +137ft 9:39 / mi
Since it was fairly warm out, I wanted to get out for a short run, just to get used to the heat. Drove to Woods Pond and by the time I got there, the dark clouds had arrived and soon there was some thunder to go along with the clouds. Certainly looked like it might rain.
So, I ditched the shirt, to avoid any chance of chafing, and took off. It had also cooled down noticeably and would continue to do so as the rain came after a couple of miles. Oh, well, no heat training, but it was a pleasant run nonetheless.
Walking (trails & dirt roads) 1:59:52  6.3 mi (19:02 / mi) +860ft 16:51 / mi
Colette and I decided to hike closer to home, since rain was in the forecast, so we started on Reservoir Road in Lenox. From there we went up the bike trails to Yokun Ridge and then the bike trails that head to the communications tower on Lenox Mountain.
Then we took the dirt roads back to the car. Nice cool day and the rain stayed away.
Walking (trails) 1:12:46  4.4 mi (16:32 / mi) +462ft 15:03 / mi
Colette and I went to Kennedy Park for a short walk before dinner. Beautiful day with lots of sunshine and low humidity.
Trails 1:07:06  5.5 mi (12:12 / mi) +1046ft 10:20 / mi
Back to Pittsfield State Forest for a run on my favorite downhill trail, the Turner Trail. Unfortunately, you have to run to the top of the hill to enjoy the downhill.
I started in the Lulu parking area, ran up the Circuit Road for a hundred yards and then onto the trails. Turns out that what I thought was the Turner Trail wasn't, but it was a nice trail nonetheless and it did join up with the real Turner Trail in a half mile.
There was some standing water on the trails, but not a lot, so while the trail was a bit muddy, it wasn't particularly wet.
I did get to enjoy the downhill on the Turner Trail--all the way to the end.
Walking 32:00  2.0 mi (16:00 / mi)
Took a walk to see how the cows were doing--they are smarter than I am --they were huddled in their stall, staring out at the rain and staying dry.
