Sunday Longer Run – RunLog 5/26/19

Well, I got the miles done, but today was more a sightseeing tour of Waterville / Winslow than it was about focusing on running the long miles hard. I did stop to take more photos than usual and that was okay since the run wasn’t about speed.

I changed up my usual course and started beside the Hannaford and then ran through the residential section versus just heading down to the River Road. If I had to live in Waterville, I have a sneaking suspicion that is the road I would prefer to live on. There was just something about the neighborhood that I liked.

Going across the bridge was the first photo stop, there is just something about that view of the Kennebec River that I enjoy. Going through Winslow I did have to take a picture of the old dam that used to cross the Sebasticook River.

Of course, by the time I got to Dunkins it was time for a pit stop, something about a long run and having to stop about 5 miles or so for that pit stop.

Then I had to get a photo of Head of Falls, it does show the power of the river.

I have never run across the 2 Cent Bridge and it seemed like a great day to do it and then go up to the new River Walk area.

I haven’t been there since they fixed it up! It is actually pretty nice and they did put in a lot of work to get it to where it is.

After that, it was more just keep putting one foot in front of the other, although that little bump on Sanger Ave did kick my butt. Of course, I had to get another photo along the Messalonskee Stream Trail.

And yes, I did have to stop once I got on Silver Street to adjust my sock. I was wearing toe socks and for some reason or other the little right toe seemed to be a bit too tight and I had to take it off to get it feeling correct.

So I gave myself another mile penalty for stopping to fix it and ended up with 11.0 miles for the run versus the 10 I had planned on.

Actually it was a pretty decent run, where I could have gone further if my socks didn’t bother at about mile 8-9 and even after fixing them, they didn’t feel quite right. So I didn’t bother attempting to go any further. I was feeling really good otherwise and it would have been nice to have had a drink of some kind.

img_3927The distance field is Kilometers, so that I wouldn’t know exactly how far I had run, since my ability to convert the distance becomes more difficult as the further I run.
