What a lovely run around the lake! Really, really going to miss these trails. Saw loads of lady slipper orchids, especially around the N end of the lake. And did a bonus up the ski hill via the trail, because around the lake is kinda flat (although always little up-and-down). Felt strong and ankle did well with the more technical bits again.

Little trail joggeroo, still feel like I'm recovering from weekend for some reason. Ankle felt really quite good on this though - did some more technical trails without tape and feel like it was net good for ankle (strengthening) instead of harmful!

After a fun stay and catch-up chez Gagarin, out to Mt. Tom for some training! The kiddos + Tom went and found a playground in Holyoke somewhere.

Training @ Mt. Tom
Mt. Tom was tough before all the blow-downs, now it's *really* tough. But good slope-side training for Switzerland. Was going pretty well until #6 (on Greg's course for Danny), and then on #7, I started the right way and then deflected into the wrong reentrant. Partially a lack of paying attn to compass when I needed to, partially poor distance/elevation loss judgement on 1:15.
But then, what I'm really least pleased with was my total inability to figure out where the heck I was. Came out on the road, eventually. But lost so much time I didn't have much more time for training. =(
