A.M.Total of 12. Ran with Mike, then 2 with Benjamin including 1 with Joseph. Jenny and Julia ran 2, including 0.5 with Jacob. Benjamin asked me how to sustain fast pace for a long time. I thought for a moment, and a parallel came to me. I said, view it as eating an orange. It is sour, but also sweet. If it was just sweet, it would not be an orange, and it actually would not taste so good. We are able to enjoy oranges because we allow the sour component of the taste to enhance rather than detract from the sweetness. When you run fast, things get sour because of the pain, but they are also sweet because of the pace. To be a good runner you must learn to enjoy the mix, take it as a whole. Speed alone without the pain to reach it is worthless. Driving 120 mph gets old fast, and frequently results in a fine, while running 10 times slower (5:00 mile) never does and frequently results in prize money. Why? Because the former is an orange without the vitamin C and other important nutrients that contribute to its sour taste.
