Run 47:44 [1] 6.1 mi (7:50 / mi) +66m 7:34 / mi

Cousin’s wedding Greenwich, Conn. Fuck you, Greenwich, Conn.

Went for a run down to a park. A public park. It was rainy overnight so no sense in going to woods for a mud fest, and this looked like a nice run from the hotel. Got down to the park (~3 miles) and a rent-a-cop in a windbreaker came out and told me I needed a pass to use the park. I said it was a public park. He said it was only for Greenwich residents who purchased a pass. I told him this was ridiculous. He said he’d call the police.

Not wanting to get bailed out for my cousin’s wedding, I decided to turn around. But I wish him, and the rest of Greenwich, ill. It’s one thing to require parking passes. It’s another to disallow people from a park. Disgusting. Turns out my uncle had tried to book a park in town for the pre-wedding bbq to be told something similar (you’re not from here go away) and he probably would have been the first one in line to bail me out. Or pay the $25 fine.

The run was fine, a little wet, some 60s pickups.

Then I had a jack-and-coke at the wedding so I wound up passing out from the booze in bed but then waking up from the caffeine, which toasted the entire next day. Lesson learned. Stick to G&Ts.

Also, Attackpoint keeps randomly reloading and deleting what I’ve written. Anyone else?

L1 with kiddos. Haven't gone classic in a while.
8 AM

Rollerski 7:30 [1] 1.1 mi (6:49 / mi) +6m 6:42 / mi

Rollerski to catch bus to meet Alex. Got to bus stop and the app said no bus for 11 minutes, but the schedule said one should arrive, and sure enough, up pulled a bus with no working AVL, ASA or head sign.

Run 45:38 [1] 5.3 mi (8:37 / mi) +341m 7:11 / mi

Calves still sore from Wednesday but I found my way through four full hills so hill repeats. Checked the log, the last time I ran front or full hills was April 14. So out of practice! Cold a little better after coming back last night, mostly now yellow stuff that's good for snot rockets.

Run 44:09 [1] 2.0 mi (22:04 / mi) +765m 10:05 / mi

Back to stadium. In marathon training mode, so fast on the downs. Felt okay, but will probably hurt later. Still feeling a bit tired after the cold (and maybe the long run Monday).

Rollerski 1:37:41 [1] 15.7 mi (6:13 / mi) +468m 5:42 / mi

My dad was driving to the dump so I got a ride to the bottom of the hills and skied back, saving a walk up the road. Skied up the Church Road, up Thundercastle and the Chase Road, then up Nickerson, down 17, back up Old Kent's Hill, and down to camp. Didn't scrub speed coming down Lane Road, but that curve is banked enough you can take it at speed, and there's not too much gravel on it these days. Would have gone around the lake but the road on the other side has a bunch of gravel culvert repairs but that means just one thing: the loop around the lake's worst pavement is getting repaved!

Run long 2:11:47 [1] 15.4 mi (8:33 / mi) +354m 7:59 / mi

Waited for the shadows to creep up around 4:00 and set out for a long run. Wasn't sure I'd make it more than around the lake (9 miles) but kept the pace steady and set out around Echo, too. Lovely day: 70, dry, light breeze, nearly all in the shade. Didn't once think of stopping to jump in a lake. Definitely enjoyed the beer at the end!
