Summer Running Streak, Day #79

Six mile hike this morning at Pulaski (where the Run with the Beavers was) including a lovely stretch of the RI North-South Trail. Each time we hike we run through logistics of doing a thru-hike of the NST, camping along the way. I'd love to see that become a reality but it is going to take some logistical work.

Four and a quarter miles tonight. The humidity is just intense at 85%. I spent most of the evening putting off the run hoping that we'd get a thunderstorm to break some of it down, but to no avail. Maybe later in the week.

Divided out and re-fed the sourdough starters, which I now have three off. I'll see which is the most active in the coming days but will probably try to keep two of them going, so I can bulk them up on opposite days and use them for the following day's dough. In the past couple of days I've made about six loaves of bread, and my technique is coming back nicely, even if things aren't close to perfect yet. 

Tonight I used the dough to make a bunch of dinner rolls for tomorrow night. They sprung much more than expected in the oven, but that's fine and the flavor and texture is very pleasing anyway. I am not setting up a dough for tomorrow as I need to build some bulk and activity into my starters. We'll see how things look tomorrow and maybe I'll set up some loaves for the following day.

Big day at work tomorrow, and then hopefully the weather will be cooler tomorrow night so I can log some more pleasant miles.
