Chapter 2 page 389 - TR 143 2.3 miles - easy peasy
Tonight "J" (who writes Running For My Life) and is in my half marathon class and I ran 2 laps before class (boy were were sweaty during class - sorry Eric & "Bootleg J"). We started with walking (very very quickly) for 1 lap = 1.25 miles, then we did the 2nd lap doing a leisurely 2 & 2 interval. "J" is sooo fast - dang, she's amazing (like 8-9:00 m/m for all of her runs - long, short, everything -she's going to be a super rock star half marathoner at the F4F - no doubt). For the last minute of our last running interval, I had "J" lead the pace which was about an 8:00 m/m and I kept up. I could have probably gone 2 minutes. After class, I texted "C" and she said "great job- bonus speed work" - yeah, our speed work is "J's" normal pace - S.I.G.H!!!!! Oh well, it was a lot of fun and I'm SOOO glad that things worked out and we were able to get a couple miles done. My left foot has been feeling a lot better- not completely cured, but not an 8/10 pain any more (maybe a constant 3/10). All in all - it was short, but it's a WIN. It was enjoyable - something that has mostly been lacking - especially in my long runs!!! Thanks "J"!!!
