A.M. Did a tempo run. 2 miles up in 11:56, then 3 miles down in 16:14. The two mile tempo went OK, the splits were 5:56 - 6:00. Then in the 3 mile tempo I started with a 5:19, but then lost steam and dragged the next two miles in 5:27 and 5:28. Wore an HRM today for the first time in several months. On the uphill after the first mile HR was around 154, then it climbed to 159 in the second mile. On the down tempo it hit 159 after the first mile then was stuck at 156 and refused to go higher until I kicked in the last quarter in 78, then it was around 160. I had to kick in 78 to run 5:28 mile, so that shows how I was dragging in between.
I think the problem was the accumulated lack of sleep. Got home, turned around, ran at about 6:00 for 0.8 to catch up to Jenny, Julia, and Sarah, then finished the run with Jenny and Julia. Total of 12.5 miles.
Benjamin ran 1 mile.
P.M. 2 miles with Joseph. Jacob ran 1. Benjamin did 1.
