A.M. Ran 8 on my own in the Provo Canyon. The road was better, so I decided to do another tempo. Since my 2 mile mark was covered I decided to make it 2.25. First mile went well. I ran it in 5:32. Tailwind helped some. Then I had some headwind in the second mile, and I slowed down to 5:47. The last quarter had minor headwind, but I was apparently tired from the wind battles and the distance, and ran it in 88. This gave me 12:47 for 2.25. I felt, though, that it was more of a problem with rhythm than the actual fitness. Headwind earlier broke by rhythm and I had not yet regained it. In the last 300 right before our house I decided to do a little hill interval. There are marks on the road every 100 meters, I am suspecting Ed Eystone and the BYU team for putting them and they appear accurate - I am always hitting reasonable splits on all of them. So I ran that 300 that had maybe 50 meters of 3-5% downhill, and then 250 of maybe 4-6% uphill in 1:00.
Then ran with the kids. Jenny and Julia did 2. Joseph and Jacob 1. Benjamin 2. I ended up with a total of 12.
