What a great weekend! Swim – Bike – Run – Read.
Swim – I started Saturday with a 3,100 yard swim.
Bike – Then immediately went for a bike ride and decided to take a more scenic, never-been-on-this-road route. Hopkinton is just the next town over but I rode past an Army Corp of Engineer dam and a covered bridge.
Run – Then once back at HQ I immediately ran; in pretty decent temperatures and cloud cover.
Then I finished reading Desperate Steps as part of my recovery.
I woke up sore! Sore! I knew I needed to run but I was completely enthralled reading Critical Hours.
It’s such a great book about recent Search and Rescues in the White Mountains. The author, Sandy Stott will be in Concord this week for an event. I can’t wait to see his talk.
But eventually I knew I need to run, so I ran. This weekend was about new routes so I ran towards NHTI and took a few pictures along the way so I could rest from fatigue, sweat and just overall tiredness; it was hot and muggy as well.
Here is Horseshoe Pond. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen a lily pad.
And a random tree with interesting things growing on them near the Heritage Trail by the NHTI boat launch. (no clue what the tree or thing was, I’m no botanist that’s for sure).
Now as evening approaches on Sunday evening I chill out and read more Critical Hours.
And hang out with this pup:
