AM: 10+ miles with a workout on the track. I wasn't planning on having a serious workout (and instead just run with people and pace them), but Celia brought a high school kid, and well, it's always fun to see if I can outrun someone who should be faster than me. Was a cut-down: 1600, 1200, 800, 4x400 with 400 recoveries between the long items and 200 between the short items. I likely have set myself up for a bit of failure/disappointment this afternoon, but we'll see.
PM: 9+ miles at the track in the middle of the afternoon- 4:30pm in Florida- Beautiful! Had an excellent group of runners out today: John, Jeremy, Chris, Anthony, and myself. I haven't done intervals with a group this talented quite possibly ever. That being said, the best part was we stayed together for 4 of the 6 items and worked well together which was the best part. Workout was 6x800 with 400 jog recoveries. Nothing special for times, but that's okay, as it felt quite easy even after a tough morning. Splits: 2:44, 2:48, 2:46, 2:39, 2:36, 2:34. Jeremy, Chris, and I stayed grouped through them all which was fun. I hope we can keep a group like this going, but after a couple of years of doing intervals now, I know it's unlikely, so I'll savor the singular experience when it occurs.
