Three days in a row?

Crazy that I'd think this was something. But I'm happy to have got out again without a day off for scheduling reasons. I've been running later in the day these past few months and it has taken a toll on consistency due to trouble with unforeseen scheduling problems. Today I recognized a timing issue early and got out in time to thwart the clock. If I can keep a handle on it, I should be able to train daily as I should be.

Today was 75 minutes on the schedule. A good run - 9.7 miles. A beautiful cloudless sky overhead with a cooling breeze off the water.

Slow getting started

Seems I start then stop - sometimes due to injury and other times due to life. Hopefully I've started again. Ran an easy hour yesterday on the rail to trail in Machias. It felt good to be out. There's been a few runs since the last post as the sidebar shows but nothing too much.

Went on a nice hike up Mt. Washington last Saturday. Well, nice in the sense I like to hike. Otherwise what a whirl of wind at the top coupled with hard rain. Got soaked - and at 6000 feet that means a little cold too. Changed the route down to get below the treeline the quickest way. It all worked out. Here are some photos:
