Track workout with Will Newell and Will Guzick. (1600 in 5:20, 1 min rest, 1200 in 3:55, 1 min rest, 400 in 72) x 3 sets with 3 min rest between sets. Great workout. Will Guzick and I stayed together for all 3 reps, but he played pacer/leader the whole way.

Tempo run with Will Guzick. 3 laps around Fresh Pond (just under 2.5 miles per loop) with loop splits of 14:38, 14:47, 14:26. 43:51 over 7.37 miles (according to Will's Garmin) gives us 5:57 average.

7:28 avg pace including WU and CD. Leg feels good!

PM - 2.2 up the North Ridge of Cadillac mountain. 1,127 feet of elevation gain according to my Garmin. 23:50 from the trail head to the informational sign at the summit. One my toes and rock hopping most of the way up.

11 miles on carriage roads in Acadia Maine with William Simmons and Dallin Rosedahl. Absolutely gorgeous run and stunning scenery.

Also, 2 hikes with the whole family (Ship Harbor and Flying Mountain), and one with jut the boys (North Bubble plus some distance due to my poor navigating). Peter did all 5 miles on his own two feet...huge accomplishment for him! Jeffrey was in the hiking backpack mostly. We did about 1k feet of vertical between the 3 hikes.

To the playground at Boston Commons for Jack Simmons birthday party and then back home. I left from outside the parking garage just and Lindsay went in with the kiddos. She passed me at mile 1.54 in the car but I still beat her by a minute or two because she had to street park and walk with the kiddos. Running is fun when your legs can take you almost 4 miles faster than a car (and the associated parking logistics).
