A.M. Total of 13.5. Did the 3 mile tempo in 16:52 - splits: 5:32, 5:40, 5:40. Felt strong in the first 1.5, then lost the rhythm after 180 turn. I am wondering if I should do those tempos without a 180 for a while to better diagnose the loss of rhythm problem. Positives: 5:32 felt very easy in the first mile. Negatives: 5:40 felt very hard later on, I felt the form was a whole lot worse. Perhaps I can see the glass as half full. The form felt bad later because it was much better earlier. Did 2x400 while running with Benjamin (he did 3 miles), 70.4 rolling, and 69.1 down. Benjamin did the last one with me and I could not drop him - this is his new PR. Jenny and Julia did 2, Joseph 1, and Jacob 0.5.
P.M. Got my lazy bum out for an eventing run for the first time in a long time. Was motivated by the latest HRM observations - HR being 5 bpm too high for the pace in the 5:40 range. Ran 5 miles at about 7:20 pace.
