After moving Ian into the storage place, stopped off at the Fells for a run around. Luckily there was the *perfect* parking spot for the moving van upon our arrival, nice!
Two laps around the Middle Reservoir, not totally knowing where we were, but it was gorgeous and just lovely to be out running! Ian had more clue than I did, and good thing, because we weren't where we thought for a bit on the way back... It was a nice run and absolutely zero ankle tweaks, which is really awesome, and it seems perfectly happy afterwards. Woo!
Although, I have received probably wise advice from multiple directions that it might be best to keep it easy even just on the running, to treat it kinda like a stress fracture. I'm pretty roped into doing one last 5k this Tues on the local xc course, but the trails there are pretty mellow and I can keep the warm-up and cool down on the short side and do less pounding stuff Monday, Wednesday, Thursday. So that's the plan!

Setting out controls @ Menotomy Rocks, NEOC season opener! I was ankle-careful and walking when in the woods. Apparently I dropped a stand without noticing, and didn't have enough for my last control... whoops!

10 min abs with Magnus and Alex, when the meet was slowing down, but we still needed to wait before collecting controls... good to pass the time =)

Mostly out for a jog on the bigger, less ankle-intense trails, picked up controls along the way.
Hmm, ok, have to admit, ankle kinda-sorta swole up after Corn Maze-O. =( The footing was pretty good, but did have two light tweaks, guess those must have done it, since normal running ~8 mi seems ok? So think I have to keep being super-alert about footing, and thus probably not properly o-ing for a bit yet... boo!

Morningski with Alex! Nice to get out, super-nice to have company, but oh my gosh is specific strength going to have to be worked on! We just did 2 x our normal set of exercises, normally we do 5, will have to work on up to that. Hopefully I can find a hill in Toledo...

Woo, o-folks from all directions descend upon Sunderland! =) Awesome to see everyone, this was a scooted-in little warm-up, latter half accompanied by Ian.

CMOUSA Classic Champs @ Mike's Maze, Sunderland, MA
Fantastic times. Lovely green corn, no ambiguity from little kids or hurricanes knocking corn down, and a neat maze, if I think a little less tricky than last year?
Anyways, this was my best race, just steady which put me in 2nd, but oodles behind superstar corn-mazer Ian. We need a face-off between him and Greg...

Hm, so I think Giacomo and Giovanni learned how to corn-maze-o in the first edition and were out there threatening Ian on this one, I lost a good lot of time confused to 4, going the left route. Right route got some simpler points!

First ever? Maybe? But bah! I totally let partner George down by skipping the spectator control. Too bad, but I was having a good run, so after a smidge of debate after I realized what I'd done, I headed out back for another second loop after punching #5. So no DQ, but jeez Ali!

Good noon run with Glenn, none of the usual guys joined in. A loop including Teawaddle Hill, which was really pretty. Chat, chat, chattering to Glenn the whole time, about ticks, my upcoming move, fore vs. heal vs. midfoot striking.
Mellow day at the gym, just an easy base workout on ellitpical, bike, elliptical, floater. Watching some murder-detective show for the first hour... unhelpfully maps are now packed!

And then spent the rest of the evening reading The Hunger Games book 3, oh my gosh was it hard to put down! I think it took me 5.5h to read in total, all in one day. And yes, I do have better things to be doing, eep!

Just a mini little b-day double-pole, still easing into it to strengthen the wrists nice n' slowly... laughed out loud when a car full of teenage guys drove up and purposefully slowed down, blasting Eye of the Tiger. Oh yeah =)
My right quad has been pretty sore, not really recovering since the 10k, so and easy day or two now, make sure it really recovers.
