Rollerski 1:06:59 [1] 9.4 mi (7:08 / mi) +280m 6:31 / mi

Feeling a lot better after a day of NyQuil haze. Not perfect, but enough to get out for a rollerski. Legs certainly felt not rollerskiing for a while, but I wanted to check out the pavement on Route 17, which allows for a very nice 5.5 mile loop with two proper hill climbs. Did that, then down P Ridge and back. Rollerskiing here is good, if you're confident in your stopping ability especially.

Well I was looking on pace for a 66 hour month to break my top month's record, uninjured and with a perfect stretch of weather in Maine (70˚ and dry). I had my 20 mile run planned out, and was off scouting a terrific rollerski six-mile figure-8 with two big climbs and the downhills on brand new pavement. And then … the cold went from my head to my throat and I've slept 13 hours today and barely been able to muster more than a bit of walking. (Okay, so part of that was taking some NyQuil in the morning and sleeping more, but sleep helps.)

Some more NyQuil tonight and hopefully I'll be on the upswing tomorrow. A shame to waste such beautiful weather.

Run 49:31 [1] 5.6 mi (8:51 / mi) +219m 7:53 / mi

Still feeling sick, but got to Maine and wanted to run. Ran the "power loop" which is all hills: 200m+ of vert in less than 10k. Kind of painful, but maybe I can run the sick out of me.

Trail Run 1:11:39 [1] 6.2 mi (11:33 / mi) +344m 9:51 / mi

Driving home from Eclipse to Boston via Chicago, Cleveland (Red Sox game, one hitter!), Akron and the ancestral homeland. Stopped at Ricketts Glen to stretch legs because 10 hours in a car is a lot. And holy moly waterfalls. Ran up the trail, took a bunch of pictures, lots of steps, then down the other glen. Just lovely! My dad walked in to the first set of falls and out, and I ran down and caught him perfectly 50 feet from the start. Then pizza!

Run warm up/down 18:47 [3] 3.4 mi (5:31 / mi)

Running around the track. No real workout proffered, but someone mentioned 2x800, 4x400 with a couple miles on the bike path first. I changed this to 1x1600, 2x800, 4x400, 2x200, 2x100. Started off feeling lousy (cold? allergy? too much time in heat and car?) but felt better, reeling off the 200s in 35s and the 100s in 15.

Run 26:00 [1] 2.0 mi (13:00 / mi)
